Fascinated with the idea of suspending stones the way musical notes are suspended on a staff, Margo Morrison began creating her semi-precious and pearl jewelry line known as MARGO MORRISON NEW YORK in 2001.
Margo describes her jewelry as "visual music", playing off positive and negative space while combining complementary colors, textures and shapes. Margo's signature feminine looks incorporate faceted semi-precious stones and lustrous freshwater pearls knotted on beige nylon cord, finished with silver toggles cast from twigs and berries. The cord disappears on the skin so the stones look as if they are floating.
Margo was "born creative" and developed her love of music and art while growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, going to museums, the opera and classical concerts. She studied classical piano from the age of seven to twenty-three and performed with an orchestra at age 16.
MARGO MORRISON NEW YORK jewelry not only appeals to women of all ages, it appeals to celebrities of all ages as well! Blake Lively, Debra Messing, Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sharon Stone, Brooke Shields, Karen Allen and Blythe Danner are all part of Margo Morrison's growing celebrity clientele, wearing her jewelry on camera and off.
"My jewelry is visual music."
