Gargantilla Jewelry Accessories & Headpieces started way back before it went online. As an innate entrepreneur, handcraft and fashion enthusiast, Ms. Cher Nuguid-Espiritu, started making a few pieces of handcrafted jewelry accessories and sold them to her relatives with just mere PhP1,500. Everything she made was sold out. The earnings prompted her to make more and more creations and the rest is history.
Gargantilla has also been featured in print and TV shows (Manila Bulletin, Channel 5's morning program "Sapul sa Singko", FashionWatch on RPN News 9, Island Weddings Magazine, The Wedding Digest, People's Journal, Sense & Style Magazine, Stella Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, to name a few) which showcased the beginning of the store as well as her creations. Recently, celebrities, such as Ruffa Guttierez and Jillian Ward (in their movie, "The Mommy Returns"), Maricar Reyes (The Wedding Digest 2012 issue) and Paloma Esmeria (When In Manila Intimate feature) have worn Gargantilla creations. Much more recently was Gargantilla's chance to dress up celebrities such as singing goddess Jaya and beautiful actress Lovi Poe.
To date, Gargantilla is not just into crafting jewelry accessories, but also makes one-of-a-kind headpieces or fascinators for all ocassions, including weddings. Indeed, Gargantilla is "where fantasy becomes reality"
