I just finished watching the movie ‘Burnt’, basically about the maturing process of a chef, played by
Bradley Cooper. I was entertained, liked the style, and the beauty of the dishes they prepared, and, well Bradley Cooper, but mostly it made me reflect on my job, and what we do at Bello Modo.
I know, sending out beading supplies is not on the same level as a Michelin chef, but in a way we contribute to the beauty in the world, sending out the supplies to the makers, to those who take them and make something beautiful with them, as a gift, for themselves, or perhaps to offer for sale. I like to think that we send out little packages of the “seeds of beauty”, and when they arrive the recipients start the germination period and spread the love, joy, and beauty with those around them.
I know, I may sound a bit dramatic here, but this is what brings meaning to my position, which inspires me to do the best job I can. I honestly view our packages going out into the world to bring the parts and pieces to those who are inspired by them to bring beauty to the world, in a tiny but long lasting and effective way. I so enjoy imagining all the pearls and crystals made into wedding jewelry, bridesmaid gifts, seed beads and components made into lovely and inspirational treasures to give to family members and friends. Warms my heart!
I want to say thanks to all of you who choose us to order your beads and supplies through, giving us a chance to take part in this colorful and beautiful dance towards joy, something we all need in our lives!
