Face the Truth and Change your Life
My Father was an entrepreneur. He wasn't a very good one, but he was always the sort of man to own his own business and never liked working for others. I spent a good chunk of my childhood at his shop, cleaning and getting things done.
Watching my Father, I knew that owning a business was hard work, but more than that, it takes the right combination of skills, product and environment for it to be successful. Hard work isn't enough. You have to be doing the right things as well. For a long time, this scared me, but in early 2012, I decided to make a go of it.
At this point, we are just beginning, and there is so much left to do, but the response thus far has been amazing. I have heard nothing but good things and the items I create have been added to wish lists all over the internet. Its a good feeling to do what you are passionate about and to see such a positive response.
All of my items are unique, and many of them are one of a kind (especially the art in frame). I do not take my inspiration from anyone else's work, but play with my materials until I have created something that I enjoy. My rosaries and prayer beads must feel good in my hands and inspire me through my eyes. My art in frame must make me think and be interesting to look at (in a good way, of course!) Nothing is listed if it does not pass my tests, but is ripped apart to be used to create something better the next time around.
Quality is also very important to me. All of my beaded items are given strength tests to ensure that they will not fall apart with use, and my "artistic creations" are crafted with care. You know when you buy a Truth and Change item that it was intended to last for many years to come, looking just as beautiful in the future as it does right now.
In the months to come, I hope to be able to offer prints and smaller beaded items in a lower price range, but am not the expense of their beauty or quality. So stick around and see what happens with us. I have a feeling that we are in for quite a ride! :)
I have always been artistic and creative, but what is most important to me is making a difference in the world. Whether I am lending money to the poor through Kiva or creating art with a positive message, I strive to make my impact a good one.
