HANNAH

CARNEGIE

Hannah Carnegie - CEO / Designer

Hannah has a distinctive talent that has been passed down through generations of the Carnegie family, living on Cumberland Island, in Georgia, USA. As a young child, she was entirely immersed in the daily routine of island life with her mother, renowned jewelry designer Gogo Ferguson, and her mother, the Island’s matriarch Grandma Lucy Ferguson.

 

The childhood contrast of life on a remote island and touring the world with her mother has gifted her with a specific awareness - laser-focused on the geometry and symmetry of nature; be it the myriad design patterns apparent in the insect kingdom, the veins running through an oak leaf, or the microscopic galaxies of organisms and cells.

It’s these awe-inspiring facets of nature Hannah strives to communicate through jewelry to increase awareness for the natural world that we often overlook as we go about our increasingly busy lives. Where ever we happen to reside - be it a concrete jungle or an island wilderness - wearing a symbol that reminds us to reconnect with nature even in the smallest way, restores our sense of well being, and transcend our daily existence.

Aged thirteen, her first ‘unofficial’ collection previewed on the catwalks of Nicole Miller in NYC. Since then, Hannah has honed her craft under the guidance of her mother’s business Gogo Jewelry as president and co-designer and as a general partner in her family’s business. The results have culminated in multiple museum exhibits - namely the High Museum Of Atlanta (twinned with the Louvre Paris), features on major US TV shows, and numerous awards for her family’s Inn on Cumberland Island, Georgia. Most recently, she donated a custom minaudière to the Prince’s Trust 40th Anniversary - garnering the highest payment for an auction item since the trust began. She has also been a supporter of the GDNR (Georgia Department Of Natural Resources), dedicated to raising awareness and support for the fragile ecosystems and rare, endangered species on the east coast of the USA.
