This handcrafted line of jewelry is designed and produced by Wendy Willey in Waynesville, North Carolina.
In 2002 Wendy was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and as she struggled with atrophy in her hands she realized the importance and need to keep them strong. This need, coupled with her passion and creativity became the driving force behind the launch of Gigi & Sugar.
Why the name Gigi & Sugar?
Wendy and Rob have four grandchildren (number 5 on the way). Wendy is known as Gigi to her grands. And Rob… Wendy always said that Rob would be called “Sugar” by his grandchildren because he is so sweet. While he is not so sure about that, the name “Sugar” has stuck.
Everything is 100% handmade; from the hand tied freshwater pearls to the individually cut deerskin tassel and leather cut bracelets.
Wendy always says everything is “Sweeter with Bling”.
Not only do I love everything Wendy designs, I happen to be very fond of Wendy and Rob. They are the sweetest, and so accommodating.
I feel jewelry has a little more meaning if you know the story and the people behind it.
