My Story – Part III: Acceptance

From Lilla Karancsi, Founder and Brand Ambassador   My Story – Part III: Acceptance I was on a corporate road trip as usual, when everything changed in an instant. The car in which I was traveling with my father and our COO was hit without warning, smashed by three trucks and burst into flames. I remember every single instant while praying.  God had gloriously saved me. There was a shard of metal hovering above me, and just in front of my face I glanced the wheel of a truck that stood suspended just centimeters away. It was a miracle that I did not die that day. I also felt that I had been given a second chance, a renewed lease on life and that I should not waste it on pursuits that failed to fill my life…with life. I realized I had to aim at what fulfills my heart’s desires, clear my path...

My Story – Part II: Awakening

From Lilla Karancsi, Founder and Brand Ambassador   One day four years ago, I was on a journey from my Hungarian home to a client company meeting in Switzerland. Reflecting on the courage-creativity link while driving, my thoughts were interrupted as I slowed my car to get a better look at a small group of buildings. They looked like they had been constructed about three hundred years ago. When I stepped into one of them, I was surprised to find a group of artisans working away on porcelain moldings and precious metals. The artist’s soul in me was instantly fascinated, and the more I learned, the more I wanted to know. Porcelain making had long been a tradition native to Hungary, but it never occurred to me how it was done. When I found out that this beautiful craft was quickly becoming a dying art, I wanted to know why and what...

PorzeLLLan Birth – Artist Debut

PorzeLLLan made its Artist Debut to an intimate crowd of just over 100, comprising members of the country’s elite, representatives of the artistic community and collaborators, and of course, family and friends. An elegant affair, it was a milestone for me because it was the first time I had formally stepped into the spotlight as the brand’s ambassador. Life before and life after that evening have felt very different, because PorzeLLLan is no longer an experimental concept. It is a unique, new and growing influence on the way beauty and art are perceived. The debut show was the 90 minutes that took our company to another level, and although a select crowd got to see it in person, I am happy to share with you highlights of what transpired on that special evening.   PORZELLLAN Fine Porcelain Jewellery Debut Welcome Speech Ladies and Gentleman,   We warmly welcome you on this special day as we celebrate the...

My Story – Part I: Aspirations

From Lilla Karancsi, Founder and Brand Ambassador   My Story – Part I: Aspirations   Four years ago, I was at a crossroads in life where I was challenging myself, but wasn’t exactly happy working long hours in a second-generation family corporation. I had no complaints, and yet I felt restless. From the time that I was a girl, I felt this conflict between wanting to go where my heart led and wanting to do something practical. Everyone around me said that those desires could never meet in the “real world.” So there I was, an accomplished university graduate, lawyer, and leader of international business development for a regional company, and yet I couldn’t shake the feeling that something wasn’t right. Where was the inspiration? The joy? Was this al there was to be? I felt as though I as living half a life, existing for one part of it while lost in a...
