Cassandra and One Twisted Vixen

Cassandra, who balances her life as a hairstylist by day and a passionate sculptor by night, launched One Twisted Vixen about a year ago. She’s always had a knack for creating and started sculpting at just 16. For Cassandra, it’s not about the money; it's about people wearing and enjoying her creations. Overcoming her perfectionism was a big hurdle, but she’s embraced the mantra of just going for it—a lesson many of us could take to heart!

I was lucky enough to get my own custom order from Cassandra!

The Importance of Niching Down and Building a Community

One of the key successes for Cassandra has been niching down and building a community around her unique creations. By focusing on what she loves, rather than trying to appeal to everyone, she’s cultivated a loyal following who not only loves her work but actively supports and promotes it. This community has grown organically, showing that being true to your art can indeed turn into a sustainable business model.


Creating with Passion and Authenticity

Cassandra's approach to her work is all about authenticity. She designs without the constraints of marketability, focusing instead on how far she can push her creativity. This authenticity resonates with her audience, proving that you don't have to compromise your vision to find success. It’s about making what you love, and as Cassandra puts it, creating pieces that are uniquely yours, even if they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.


Embracing Uniqueness and Overcoming Negative Judgment

Dealing with judgment and not fitting into a conventional box is something Cassandra knows all too well. Recently, she faced criticism for her alternative style—but she stands firm. It’s a powerful reminder that the only opinions that truly matter are those that help us grow and feel true to ourselves. We're never too old or too different to express who we are.


Writing a Book: Sharing Experiences and Tips for Small Business Artists

Looking ahead, Cassandra is planning to pen a book detailing her journey as a small business artist. It’s not just about her successes but also the gritty realities of navigating the business side of creativity. This book aims to be a resource for fellow artists, packed with real-life experiences, challenges, and invaluable tips—everything from managing finances to scaling a business.

Cassandra’s story isn't just inspiring—it's a blueprint for anyone looking to make a living from their passion without losing their soul. So, whether you're an artist, an entrepreneur, or just someone who loves a good success story, Cassandra's journey with One Twisted Vixen is a testament to what can be achieved with a little courage and a lot of heart. Don’t forget to check out her work, and perhaps, let it inspire your next venture or creation.
