Statement jewelry goes glam with GiGi, a handcrafted collection by St. Louis-based attorney/designer Jeanne Roberts Johnson. Beginning as an after-work hobby, Johnson has created a line that appeals to a woman’s inner glamazon—creating opulent yet sophisticated pieces that are versatile enough to transition seamlessly from day to night.

After an increased interest in her creations by friends and family, Johnson decided to officially launch her brand, quickly creating a presence that is hard to miss. From shiny baubles and bangles to sets that can be mixed and matched, each piece is handcrafted to dazzle. The expansive collection boasts stones like green and white jade, black onyx and coral. Pave-encrusted beads and Swarovski pearls and crystals add a touch of bling to the palette. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings are delicate yet strong, creating a soft femininity.

Johnson plans to increase her presence in 2014 by launching the Magnet Collection, each piece of which is entirely interchangeable and can be worn countless ways. GiGi has been featured on Resale Royalty and Rachel Ray, and can be purchased at several local retailers including Cha in Ladue, the Chase Park Plaza and the official GiGi by Jeanne website. Tis the season for holiday sparkle!
