Prepare to enter Tavi territory: When Jill Golden was a ten year old in suburban Detroit, she was already a designer. “I used to make bracelets and beaded barrettes, and I sold them to the trendy ‘tween store in my town,” she says.
But like many a grade-schooler’s, her interest passed, and Jill soon hung up her beading loom, eventually heading into the wild world of beauty marketing—a career that landed her in a not-too-shabby gig at Lancôme. Something kept calling (screaming!) for Jill to reengage with that jewelry world, though: “About 10 years ago, I took some time off between corporate jobs. I had a friend who was making jewelry, and I helped her with marketing and eventually design,” she recalls. “I loved it and found that it was the first medium where I could really express myself.”
From there, Jill decided to start her own thing, Flutter—first as a (very time-consuming) side project and soon a full-time thing, quitting her job and transforming her West Village apartment into a working studio in the process. The results have been grueling, but worth it. Or, as she says, “With jewelry design, I imagine a piece, and the finished product exceeds my expectations—and that’s immensely rewarding.” —erica
