Meet Your Makers, pt. 2

We are stoked to introduce to you more of our awesome team! These are the people who are lovingly making your pieces and sending them to you. We put in a lot of hours with each other this time of year as we're ramping up for the Holidays...having a team as rad as these folks sure makes the long days a lot more fun!

 

Meet Audrey

 

WHAT IS YOUR JOB AT GLDN?

I used to package orders (making your pieces look fancy in the boxes n’such) but I recently started working more on assembling! It’s so much fun! :)  

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERe?

I started working Halloween ’16 so a little over a year. 

 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB?

I love doing everything tbh. Packaging is very zen, whereas with assembly you’re measuring, adding, subtracting and making sure every detail is just perfect so it's a bit more intense. BUTTTT, I’d also have to say playing with all the cute doggos ^_^

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAV GLDN PIECE?

I love all the chokers. Also the La Femme Collection is amazing. 

 

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU'VE EVER GIVEN?

From here - probably the Soar Bird Necklace. So simple but also elegant. In general - well, you’d have to ask my friends/family. 

 

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

OMG! My boyfriend got me a pretty awesome present last year. It was a Canon T3i. I love making videos/editing. I almost cried. 

 

FAV HOLIDAY DISH?

My Nana’s red chili tamales! Spicy but addicting!

 

FAV THING TO MAKE AT GLDN?

I love the best friend necklaces. It’s sentimental knowing that they are going to multiple people, bringing them together.  It's a great design!

Meet Pamela

 

WHAT IS YOUR JOB AT GLDN?

A little bit of everything! I do most of our custom handwriting pieces and I have also done a lot of stamping and assembly. I'm hoping to get promoted to dog-petter soon. 

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERE?

I've worked here since March 2017, so 7 months.

 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I love getting to do pieces with a lot of sentimental value and hearing all the positive reactions from customers. I also love all the pets people bring to work. 

 

YOUR FAV GLDN PIECE?

The Freya Earrings, which I wear pretty often. I also love a lot of pieces from the La Femme Collection!

 

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU'VE EVER GIVEN?

I am the absolute worst at giving gifts.

 

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

The Sandman: The Dream Hunters by Neil Gaiman illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano. Does food count?

 

FAV HOLIDAY DISH?

My parents make the best dumplings! They are very labor-intensive though, so I've yet to attempt them on my own. 

 

FAV THING TO MAKE AT GLDN?

I love stamping our coordinates pieces, it's very meditative and I really enjoy the subtlety of the pieces themselves. Sometimes people just hand those to me right away because they know how much I like doing them. 


 

Meet Rose

 

WHAT IS YOUR JOB AT GLDN?

I'm a packager, this is the last step before an order gets shipped to our wonderful customers. 

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERE?

One year. :)

 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I'm working with amazing and talented people, they don't just make beautiful jewelry, some of them paint, draw, bake, do photography and perform in musicals - I wish I had their talents too!  

 

YOUR FAV GLDN PIECE?

They're all beautiful but the Druzy Seafoam Necklace is sooo refreshing to the eye. 

 

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

I'm a New Years baby so I get Christmas, New Year and birthday gifts all together. But this past birthday my daughter, Jasmine, and her boyfriend Mason took me out to dinner at the space needle in Seattle, it was awesome. 

 

FAV HOLIDAY DISH?

Mostly Filipino food, especially Pancit. It's a Filipino noodle dish, always a present on my birthday parties because there's a saying that you'll live a long life if you eat it on your birthday. :)
