Georgina Evelyn Cave Gaskin (née France) (December 8, 1866 – October 29, 1934), known as Georgie Gaskin, was an English jewellery and metalwork designer.

With her husband Arthur Gaskin she was one of the original members of the Birmingham Group of Artist-Craftsmen which formed around Joseph Southall in the 1890s, and reflected the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement at the Birmingham School of Art under the headmastership of Edward R. Taylor.[1]

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery holds the largest collection of the Gaskins' work in all media.[1]
