We had the good fortune of connecting with Ja-Nessia Prince and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ja-Nessia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process of birthing my brand Nessia Creates was really lead by the universe. One summer during my undergrad I had an abundance of time and creating became a pass time of mine. Whether that was painting, sketching, beading, or copper bending. Due to my love to create I just continued to make an abundance of items. When friends around me started to buy my pieces it gave me the inspiration to monetize my creations on a different level and Nessia Creates was born.Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a artist of many different mediums. Painting, beading, and crafting from copper are some to mention a few. What sets me apart from most others is the intention put behind each piece. Many my creations are designed after a one on one consultation with the buyer. You are purchasing an item that is custom and unique to you. I think my family and friends have been the driving force behind getting me to where I am today. It has not always been easy, and there are many parts of my business that I am still growing into, but I am grateful for the journey. Most of all I’d say when challenges do arise stay true to your vision. Stay true to what you feel you bring to the world, and the universe will always make room for you to express that. My brand and overall lifestyle is just about that. Nessia Creates is an umbrella brand where I can provide all these different creations. I think it is important to have spaces like this for yourself, and I have been blessed to monetize it into a brand.If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
