$15 for $30 Worth of Beading Supplies and Classes
Beaders pick up Swarovski Elements bicone crystal beads ($0.06–$0.08 for 2.5mm), 1-ounce cane glass mixes ($12.56–$13.95), and beading thread ($2.77–$3.47 for clear) to create elegant jewelry. The class catalog, meanwhile, reveals the techniques of beginning beaded jewelry ($25) and the byzantine chainmaille weave ($25), and guides students through the creation of etched copper cuffs ($45).
Lined with Swarovski Elements crystal pendants, gemstones, Japanese seed beads, sterling-silver findings, and handmade glass beads, Fusion Beads seems to glimmer. For the experienced beader, it's a treasure trove of all the materials necessary to create stunning pieces, and the knowledgeable staff help beginners sift through the stock to find everything they need to start a necklace or bracelet. The team also hosts several classes each week, covering everything from the techniques of basic beading to the more advanced metalsmithing, precious-metal clay manipulation, and bead weaving. Because the shop only hires dedicated beaders, each employee has firsthand knowledge to help shoppers with their projects, whether they want to create the perfect gift for a loved one or make the perfect earrings for their look-alike bobble head.
