Everything Golden is vintage bohemian for the outdoor women, offering a thoughtfully curated collection of vintage clothing and handcrafted accessories.
Why Handmade + Vintage?
Because we believe beauty is deeper than simply a visual quality — it comes from history and creative process. Whether it is a serendipitous vintage find that allows you to imagine another time and space, or a handmade treasure where you can feel the intention behind the creation, here is where the joy lies. In addition, vintage clothing and handmade goods are truly unique and offer integrity and quality that mass produced goods can not.

TAMMY TIRANASAR moved to NYC from Miami to follow her dream of becoming a fashion designer. Her fashion background includes graduating from Columbia University, starting her own line of clothing and studying pattern making at FIT. She also explored various textile techniques such as spinning and natural dyeing with plant dyes. Along the way she played around with macrame after coming across some vintage 70s craft books. The macrame experiments developed quite unexpectedly into a jewelry collection. After a fair amount of soul searching she realized that her hand knotted jewelry really brought together all her technical skills and passion as an artist and designer. Her necklaces are all handmade in NYC with organic intuitive emotion.
JYUMOKU is the state of being conscious of your surroundings and the impact of your actions on it.

Each piece is handcrafted in California, USA.
SHWOOD began as a simple experiment with nature. Founded in a small garage, the first pair was nothing more than a whittled-down tree limb, rusty cabinet hinges, and lenses from a thrift store. It was an endeavor with design, material, and aesthetic aimed at encompassing the individuality and uniqueness found only in natural surroundings. The result was a product that redefined eyewear as something that can be truly appreciated as one of a kind. Shwood sunglasses are all handcrafted in Portland, OR with a manufacturing process that merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form.
THE PIGMENT PROJECT is a collection of hand loomed beaded jewelry inspired by the shapes and colors around Montana. Created by Jessica & Jillian, each piece is made from a loom designed and built by Jessica's late father. He made the loom for Jessica when she was just a kid, and one rainy day in 2012 she dusted off the loom and put it to work again. Although the looming process is slower on this beautiful loom, they enjoy being able to craft on something with special meaning. All items are handmade in Helena, MT, using quality materials.
ERIN CONSIDINE is a New York-based artist and third-generation craftsperson who was first exposed to the art of metalwork in 2001 at North Carolina's Penland School of Craft. Intrigued by the seemingly endless possibilities of the material, Considine went on to focus on Metals, Small Scale Sculpture and Sustainability at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. After re-locating to New York, she launched her sustainably-minded line in 2009, merging her skill as a metalsmith and a life-long passion for fiber.
By marrying two such diverse materials, Erin is able to continuously experiment with technique and form. Her natural-dye baths make use of ingredients like madder root, logwood and onion skin. Her metal forms are mined from the dregs of industrialism- whether it be by repurposing dead-stock jewelry findings or sculpting models inspired by the antique metier. Her commitment to sustainability ensures that almost every step of the production process is completed by hand in New York, primarily by Erin herself.

YOUNG IN THE MOUNTAINS - Designer Mariele Ivy is the daughter of a wooden boat builder & an avid gardener. Her works have always been inspired by the symbiosis of humans & their environment. Born and raised in Western Montana, she spent her early life in the rivers and woods, exploring and creating art inspired by nature. It was in a 1920s barn turned wooden boat studio that she created her first jewelry piece at the age of 5. A thin blue ribbon strung though a oyster shell, simple and natural, a harbinger of what was to come. After college, she moved from the mountains of Montana to spend time in the eclectic sea side city of San Francisco. There she established her design studio and began to create work that reminded her of what it was like to be young in the mountains. Where you listen to the seasons changing, to energize your aesthetic and mood. Where there is only room for simple, purposeful & inspired design & everything else is gone with the shift of the breeze. Mariele now also maintains a studio nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains outside of Boulder, CO.
Natalie Brown is an inspired writer and has published one of my all time favorite novels, The Lovebird. As a writer she spends a lot of my time concerned with intangibles: stories, ideas, and emotions that live in her heart and mind. Creating tangible objects gives her a chance to make and share beauty in a different way. In fabricating metal using traditional methods, she hopes to share a kind of beauty that can adorn the body, mark significant milestones, be kept and treasured for years, and be handed down from one wearer to another. She works out of her studio in Livingston Montana.
NA NIN's fragrances are made by Kate Jennings inside of her home in Richmond, VA. They are inspired from the feeling that you get from listening to a certain song that reminds you of a favorite memory.
Katrin Reifeiss has an incurable wanderlust of love and color. Each item she creates tells a story, influenced by her love of travel and painting.

With a focus on craftsmanship, her creativity and spontaneity of design are shown in her hand-dyed fabric. Each item is designed and dyed in her studio in Brooklyn, then they are sewn in small batches in the NYC garment district.
