|One Red Bead|
5% of net sales from wordwisdomart.com go to artists in need of supplies for their work, with the belief that "We can't do it alone. Art is one way we weave ourselves together as community and as a family. Even if you don't 'do' art, you can support another person's courage walk.
How did One Red Bead get started? Emily was literally one red bead away from finishing a big project. So she jumped in the car and went to get one. On the way she says, "I thought of how many artists also need just that one thing, that one chance, but have no means to get it. So One Red Bead was born.â€
At first she appealed to friends and family to give up their unused materials and supplies they'd stockpiled. Then she found local artists in need and donated those items to them. All too soon, it became clear that there was a greater need than her very generous circle could support. Her dream of helping others was in danger of becoming lost so she got to work and began making and selling her own art, using a percentage to fund her vision. Now, wordwisdomart.com and One Red Bead are together, building a strong community of buying and sharing art that inspires all of us.
Every purchase from wordwisdomart.com means an artist can finish their projects, can sell them and perhaps sustain themselves and their family. Wordwisdomart.com will continue to offer inspired, altered, and mixed media products and plans to host the artists that One Red Bead has assisted. Look for the featured artist and their work on wordwisdomart.com. Get inspired, get involved, and get going on your own courage walk!
