Within their well-stocked shop in Historic Franklin Village, Bead Works' staff has been repairing, designing custom jewelry, and setting new jewelry trends for more than a quarter of a century. They draw upon their expansive design knowledge to lead numerous jewelry-making and beading classes for beaders, some of whom travel in from as far way as New York City, Miami, and the Oort cloud. In classes, teachers walk students through the steps of crafting specific items, or train fingers to master the deft movements of special techniques such as weaving or pearl knotting.
The professional beaders also make treks to on-location parties where they help budding craftsmen turn Bead Works' broad array of beads and trinkets into elegant necklaces, earrings, and mouth guards. The staff also gussies up their patron's outfits with a unique collection of vintage jewelry and intricate, beaded purses.
