About Aries and Mars
My intrigue with beading began at the age of 11. My family owned a butcher store. One day I was tinkering with beads and our butcher showed me how to create flowers by weaving beads with wire. This was a nice way to keep me occupied at the time. I went off to college, minored in art history, got a job, travelled a lot... As I got older I noticed the noticeable price mark ups on jewelry, especially beaded jewelry. It was and is expensive to accessorize one's outfits! I began creating bracelets, earrings, necklaces and other items that can be strung together and gave them away as gifts. I have often been asked to sell them, but felt awkward asking for money, until a friend introduced me to this format and assured me it was easy. Well, I am still learning.
