All About Mari
When Mari Eriksson opened the Fusion Beads retail store in 1997, it was her dream come true – an expression of her lifelong passion for beads. By offering engaging classes, an exciting selection of products and a visually inspiring retail environment, the Seattle store became central to the beading community. Seven years later, in 2004, she brought Fusion Beads online to build a global beading community for sharing creativity, expertise and tips on beads and beading. Our mission is to bring you a well-organized and easy-to-use site filled with information, inspiration and high-quality, fairly priced products – in other words, the best bead shopping site ever!
