Gilda has been in the women’s clothing and accessories business since 1970, opening her own boutique in Newton, MA in 1985, aptly named Gilda’s, Is now in its 27th year.
While primarily concentrating on retailing the work of young American and international designers, Gilda has, through the years, lent her own talented input to some of those lines. Ever searching for the right sort of “funky” but classic looks, she became enamored of African trade beads, and, after amassing a fairly large and varied collection of old and new beads, set to designing her own line. 
Produced in Santa Fe, this jewelry is sold primarily at the Karen Melfi Collection.Gilda has made Santa Fe her home since 2000.
