Crafting Empowerment: Unveiling the Artful Journey of A Bitch 'N' Company

Welcome to the world of empowerment and artistry! In this blog, we delve into the extraordinary journey of Marrisa Kay Snake Bitch Schwierjohn and A Bitch 'N' Company, where creativity meets resilience, and discarded items find new life as functional art. Join us as we uncover the story behind the name, explore the creative process, and understand the mission driving this unique venture.

Can you share the story behind the creation of A Bitch 'N' Company and its unique name?

A:  I legally changed my name to Marissa Kay Snake Bitch Schwierjohn, aiming to embrace my nickname without it being considered harassment. I played with words, nature, and my name, giving birth to "A Bitch 'N' Company."

What inspired you to start creating functional art from discarded items?

A: I have always loved repurposing things left behind, finding beauty in the forgotten. My passion lies in reimagining discarded items into functional art.

How do you select the items to repurpose into functional art pieces?

A: The items simply speak to me. For example, the idea to create candles came to me while enjoying a mimosa at my favorite breakfast joint. I decided to repurpose the glass from the restaurant's empty champange bottles. I like to infuse my creations with old-era, steampunkish vibes combined with a touch of nature.

Could you walk us through your creative process when crafting a new piece?

A: I envision the potential of each item. For candles, I removes bottle labels, prepares the glass for cutting, and incorporates copper for its healing qualities. The copper rims symbolize healing, especially in the context of my experiences with epilepsy and being picked on for being different.

How does A Bitch 'N' Company contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle?

A: A Bitch 'N' Company reduces landfill waste by giving discarded items a second life. Once a candle is finished, it can be repurposed as a flower vase. The packaging is eco-conscious, using simple brown paper to wrap the candles.

How do you choose and develop the scents for your candles?

A: The scents are drawn from memories, adding a personal touch to each candle.

Besides candles, what other eco-conscious products do you offer?

A: Currently, A Bitch 'N' Company focuses solely on candles, emphasizing the creation of a high-quality product.

Where do you envision A Bitch 'N' Company in the next few years?

A: I envision expanding into driftwood creations, chandeliers, and other unique pieces that come to me randomly, exploring the production possibilities.

The fusion of personal resilience, eco-conscious practices, and artistic flair makes each creation not just a piece of decor but a statement of empowerment.
