Fascinated with the idea of suspending stones the way musical notes are suspended on a staff, Margo Morrison launched her jewelry collection, known as MARGO MORRISON NEW YORK, in 2001.
It was a natural evolution for Margo, as she developed her love of music and art while growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. She enjoyed visiting museums, studying classical piano and even performing with an orchestra at age 16.
Margo describes her jewelry, which is handmade in her Manhattan studio, as "visual music.” Her signature looks play off positive and negative space, while combining complementary colors, textures and shapes. The feminine (with just the right dash of edginess) designs incorporate faceted semi-precious stones and lustrous freshwater pearls. Margo knots her stones on nude nylon cord, giving the illusion of floating stones.
MARGO MORRISON NEW YORK jewelry, also inspired by her travels around the world, offers accessible luxury to women of all ages — as well as a growing celebrity fan base. Chef-author Ina Garten and actresses Blake Lively, Debra Messing, Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sharon Stone are all part of Margo Morrison's growing celebrity clientele list, wearing her jewelry on camera and off.
