Today we’d like to introduce you to Kamari Young-Williams.
Hi Kamari, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
I’d like to say I’m still getting started. I have always liked being creative and finding ways to challenge myself with something new. During the start of pandemic, I was able to transform what I do. My husband encouraged me to start my business after constantly creating things and storing them on the shelves at home. I started with creating centerpieces but decided I wanted to learn to do tumblers and expand my bling work. I used that time to launch Kamari’s Kreations. My pastor once told me that this is my gift and honestly, I just use what God has given me to bring a smile to others. It’s still in the works of being fully complete but I have a Facebook page, Instagram page and am working on my google website.
I ordered my cricut machine in November of 2019 and I started making simple tumblers the turner my husband gifted me with. I quickly used all the stones I had purchased over the past few months, from blinging mirrors to use on coffee mugs. One day while on a Motorcycle Ride and met Denise, of Big Wheel Women. She asked if I could bling a pair of boots for her. Of course I said yes and it allowed me to believe in myself to do something I had never done before. This was my first shoe challenge and from then on, she has not only been a repeat customer but a huge push into who I am with my business. I have become a vendor at few events and am always looking to meet new people who are willing to let me bring their vision to life.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. I am not advertising myself as much as I should due to having a full-time job and currently working as a Marriage and Family Therapist intern. I am slowly learning how to promote myself more with networking and I’m sure it will pay off. All of my work has been custom orders so what I choose to create doesn’t always sell first because people love the idea that I can create a personalized look just for them. I honestly think I love that part more than creating it on my own, lol.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I specialize in creating tumblers with bling, adding bling shoes and slides, adding bling to mirrors, creating dominoes and most recently expanding the tumbler business with my husband and our children. I am most proud of where I am now compared to where I was when I started. I can see my growth in my photos or videos of my products. I’m known for my bling work, it sets me apart from others. There are many others that do what I do but what sets me apart from the others is my attention to detail and my ability to get to know my customers. It allows me to bring who they are into what I create.
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
What I like best about Orlando is that I haven’t yet found anyone else that does what I do at the level in which I do it. What I dislike about it is nothing. I’m a natural Floridian and I love my city.
