From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday, artist Gay Isber helps guests construct jewelry from her collection of beads, boxes, paints, and other craft supplies. Patrons nibble and sip on food and drinks they bring in, which can be prepped in the artist's kitchen, or fire up a CD or iPod to serve as background music. As she leads the classes, Gay also shares facts and stories about each chosen vintage, new, pearl, or wooden bead. Guests can also purchase jewelry and crafts, such as earrings between $20 and $40 and numerous bracelets for less than $40. More elaborate pieces include a beaded cuff bracelet with metallic embellishments ($60) or a charm-adorned choker-chain necklace ($65).
The Sugar Factory by Gay Isber Designs
Jewelry designer Gay Isber has transformed an old building into a glittering enclave decorated in a whimsical style that brings to mind Willy Wonka's factory as reimagined by a quirky fairy godmother. Classes and parties amid the animal-print furnishings and scintillating chandeliers draw together guests to craft jewelry from her huge stash of beads. The jeweler, who has adorned the necks of several celebrities, demonstrates techniques and shares stories about each bead's origins and former life as ammo for a peashooter.
