Beadoholique helps jewelry makers master their craft with a variety of classes instructed by experienced and talented bead artists.

Accessory architects will learn how to wire-wrap earrings and pendants and how to end necklaces and bracelets with crimps. Students must come to class accompanied by 24-gauge head pins, ear hooks, a clasp, beads of their choice, and (if desired) a pendant.
