Compassionate creativity


Chuck of  ‘downtothewiredesigns’

What a highly inspiring way to begin this New Year!

In the midst of all the craziness going on in this world,it is just so uplifting to see people take the real needs of this world seriously ,set with a pure value system and a heart of Gold!

I read this article on Etsy`s handmade blog  interviewing Chuck, a Jewelry  Designer who owns the line Downtothewiredesigns and has an online shop on ETSY.

Call me a dreamer,but I believe there is a revolution going on,maybe slow and maybe quiet,but it`s there..More and more people are tired of a reality inwhich material power overrules, disregarding the needs of others,destroying the basic natural harmonic balance of all creation!

Chuck does not suffice with creating beauty with his pure hands and soul,contributing already in changing the existing monopoly of Mass production,aiding in changing our value systems,but allows himself to doubt even more about his work and contribution to humankind,searching endlessly for ways to give and make a change,he has decided to give of his creations to charity in many different ways.

I was deeply moved to learn about his quiery and inner debate whether he was giving enough,as I was equally glad to see the immense amount of handcrafters responding to him sharing the same values!Read the full article here.

 I want to thank Chuck for the inspiration,and Etsy for the article.Etsy is a blessed initiative in itself bringing together and promoting  handcrafters from all over the world creating a beautiful power of change!

I am proud to be part of Etsy as I am equally proud to be part of a growing population of  people who care and search to make a difference!

  1. Some very nice thoughts here. It’s true when you think of all the mass production and all the child labour and suffering that goes with it. Handmade products made with love is rare to find. It’s great what you are doing.
    It’s good food for thought. Even I buy mass produced items, most of the time. But when I do buy something handmade with love, there’s a totally different feeling to it. It’s amazing how simple things can provide so much happiness!

  3. Mia,

    Thanks so much for writing about this. Your article is great and will hopefully inspire others. I was very pleasantly surprised at the positive response that the Storque article got– surprised that so many others felt similarly conflicted and that so many were finding their own ways to contribute. It was nice to see so many with their hearts in the right place.

    Hey Chuck,
    I was equally surprised,thats why I decided to write about it, showing that there is much more thought put into these issues than we tend to think,hoping it will just continue to ‘snowball’..
    I would like to thank you for voicing your inner thoughts and conflicts about your work,as it has helped me clarify my own.! Cheers,Mia.
