Meet Paula Sims of Age Of Aquarius Designs in San Fernando Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paula Sims.

Paula, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I began leather wrapping crystals about five years ago to pass the time while I was laid up with a broken knee. Originally, I made necklaces and gave them away to friends and family. People started to inquire as to where they could purchase the necklaces so with the help of my daughter, I opened an Etsy shop and Age of Aquarius Designs was born. I’ve since added Chakra gemstone bracelets and metalwork to my designs.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been a fun journey! I’ve asked a lot of questions and have met many interesting and helpful people along the way.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Age Of Aquarius Designs story. Tell us more about the business.
I create handmade jewelry with crystals and minerals. I work mainly with raw stones that are exactly as they came from the earth and have not been cut or polished in any way. This natural element gives my designs a rustic and bohemian vibe.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I hope to do more charitable work. I love creating special pieces for silent auctions and being able to raise money by doing so… I’m also looking forward to mentoring younger artists and teaching them what I know and helping them with their endeavors.
