We are proud of our amazing kiddo for many reasons, but their creativity and artistry are definitely at the top of the list. Since they were very small, Z has loved to design and create.
Now, following in my footsteps, they have started their own company in the midst of a pandemic. Xage’s Creations specializes in custom jewelry creation using the vintage art of Shrinky Dinks.
Z draws, colors, cuts, hole punches and bakes their designs, then attaches hypoallergenic earring hardware. They generated more than $50 in sales in just their first week!
Z’s designs are fun, trendy and artfully drawn. Some of their popular creations include:
- Figures from the popular online game Among Us
- Gummy bears
- Eggs and bacon
- Lemon and lime slices
- Pride flags
- and, my personal favorite, pizza and tacos
It’s not just Z’s colorful and creative designs that I love. They also came up with the concept of repurposing an old, freebie pack of playing cards as the packaging for their designs. Then, we took it up a notch further by adding small, colorful gift bags – and Z lovingly tucks a piece of Double Bubble gum into each one.
The end result is a product that is fun, high quality, sparkling with 80s kitsch and nostalgia – and looks like something you’d purchase on Etsy for twice the price.
Since the inception of Xage’s Creations, Xage has added many new product offerings, including sculpture, nature art and more. Inspired by nature, Xage continues to innovate and create art across a myriad of media.
You can follow Xage’s Creations on Instagram and Facebook. To order, send a direct message through either platform. Custom designs are $5 and if it’s something they already have in stock, earrings are $4. Payment is via Venmo or Paypal. Shipping is $5 until we can figure out a more cost-effective solution – but we do offer free delivery within Columbus!
I’m so proud of our multi-talented kiddo and their first serious business. I’d love to see it thrive. There’s nothing like starting your entrepreneurial career at the age of 10!
