Staff were not very friendly or helpful when selecting items needed to complete a nice bracelet after the class (since beads for class were inexpensive plastic with no option to purchase others until after class). Instructor for class was nice but rushed for time at end of session (and it was a small group).

From Our Editors

A Harvard Square landmark since 1991, Boston Bead Company has provided numerous individuals with the training and materials needed to construct jewelry by hand. Introductory classes can cover basic stringing, wire work, knotting, and macrame techniques, preparing students to form their own bracelets, earrings, necklaces, or other eye-catching pieces. Knowing the techniques isn't enough though, so Boston Bead Company's locations feature open stock bins and displays brimming with an ever-changing selection of jewelery-making implements that can include everything from gemstones and freshwater pearls to crystals, nuts, and seeds. Both stores also sell an assortment of specialized pliers, although staff members are also on-hand to help perform basic beading repairs or undo stubborn knots via telekinesis.
