Oysters grow pearls, which humans transform into necklaces, just as snowmen grow noses, which humans transform into salad. Craft adaptive gems with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for $75 worth of 2012 winter and spring jewelry-making classes or BYOB weekly drop-in classes
- $99 for a three-hour BYOB weekly drop-in class for four (a $300 value)
Master artists compile a catalog of jewelry crafting classes that range from basic courses covering the fundamentals, such as the Beginning Wire Jewelry 3 Hours Bootcamp, to higher-level sessions such as the 10-week Intermediate – Advanced Metalsmith Jewelry class. Otherwise, the weekly rotation of drop-in classes allows students to forge do-it-yourself earrings and necklaces while sipping on a favorite libation from home.
