The bead emporium hosts coveted classes for jewelry-crafting pilgrims, ranging from the basic techniques of Beading 101 to the Level 27 magical Loremaster powers of advanced metalsmithing. Basic classes range in price from $32 to $42, while more-advanced classes range from $38 (soldering and forming lentil charms) to $135 (bezel setting and intro to silversmithing). If you have any of your $50 Groupon credit left after registering for a class, spend it on the materials necessary for the class (except the etching pendants or dichroic classes), or use it toward bringing a friend along or taking a second class. The store's quaint, whitewashed façade conceals a dragon's den of beads, gemstones, and jewelry-crafting supplies, some of which, like dragons, spew fire. Beads are arranged in an organized and beautiful manner on a variety of tabletops and in glass display cases, simplifying the hunt-and-gather process for nomadic artisans. The bead collection comes from countries around the world, and 90% of the semi-precious beads are handpicked and gem-graded A+ by sparkling schoolmarms.
Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf with today's Groupon to stretch your muscles and muscle your stretches into a stretch of intense muscular moves. For $30, you get a five-class pass to Westside Yoga Studio in Lakewood, a $65 value. Upon your first visit, you'll receive your pass, which can be used toward any of the classes offered at the comforting studio. Once activated, you'll have 60 days to use your five classes, giving your card the considerable shelf life of a gallon of dehydrated milk.
