Meet Kasheera Hickson, creator and founder of Wild Heart Bliss, an online handmade jewelry boutique.
Q: Tell me more about your jewelry company. How did it come about?
A: I’m a very artistic person. I got into drawing and painting back in high school and about 10 months ago I came up with the idea to paint a pair of plain wooden earrings that I’d brought at a thrift store. I fell in love with the first pair I made and so I went out looking for different shapes and surfaces that I could paint and began experimenting with how they could be be made into jewelry as well. I enjoyed making jewelry and painting so much that I decided to turn it into a business. I also received a lot of positive feedback from my subscribers of my KashTV channel. They love my earrings and have been very supportive.
Q: And with your blog and YouTube page…were there reasons behind their creations?
A: I originally created my Youtube Channel to do cover songs because I love to sing. But around the same time, I started looking into “going natural” because I was tired of getting perms and depending on other people to care for my hair. This search led me to a ton of naturalista’s on youtube who were showcasing different tips & techniques on styling natural hair. I became inspired by these ladies and decided to share my journey as well and what I’ve learned along the way. My blog ItsKashTV.com is an extension of my Youtube Channel as I share my videos on the blog as well as other interests and passions I have.
Q: What do you like most about what you do?
A: I love that I can express my creativity and share it with the world. We are all given so many amazing gifts and so it’s amazing to be able to share my gifts and insights with the world and receive so much positivity and support. I love the community I am a part of on youtube. It is bringing people together as well as inspiring others to embrace the hair they were born with.
Q: What can you share about singing? Is this a career you’re perusing?
A: The first thing I remember saying I wanted to be as a child was a singer, so singing is definitely something I’ve always loved to do and I’m looking to do more very soon. I am actually currently looking to collab with other musicians to create a few songs that I want to release this summer! I will definitely be sharing with my youtube audience as well!
Q: And how do you manage all you do because you seem to be one busy sistah!
A: I make many lists and prioritize!! I keep myself on a schedule that works for me so that I can continue to get things done effectively. Also my boyfriend Mark helps me with literally everything and so I definitely have to give him major credit. He is a videographer and photographer and shoots the majority of the footage for my channel. Check him out at www.KingArtistry.com!
