Six-year-old Austin Hendrickson recently launched business Bead King, in which he creates Perler bead designs into individual art pieces and keychains and sells them around town.

His burgeoning venture has been so successful that he was presented his honorary license during a ceremony with Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis Tuesday, Nov. 20.

One of Austin's inspirations is his brother Grant, who has a caricature business, Artmazeing, that has been recognized for its entrepreneurial spirit and sustainable practices.

So when his younger brother saw all the success Grant was enjoying, he also wanted to capitalize on his artistic tendencies.

Both will conduct business during the Lewis & Clark Montessori Arts Festival on Friday afternoon, Dec. 7.

The festival will run from 4 to 8 p.m. at the school, 15600 S.E. 232nd Drive, Damascus.
