It's a group of wonderful people that share a passion for what they do and convey it to others. I enjoyed the class very much!

Stephanie was the instructor. She was great at explaining what you needed to do, and equally great, she prepared you for what you might and probably would do being new at working with glass so as not to worry. Very educational and fun experience!

It's a little hard to find, so turn in at the bowling alley and look to your right. You will see the building just to the right at the back corner of the building. This was a fun class in beginning bead making.

The owner was very pleasant and helpful. We had a very hard time finding this store. More specific directions would have been helpful.

From Our Editors

Hidden just east of Cobb Parkway, a complex of low, slate-blue warehouses shelters a community of textile workers, sculptors, and graphic designers intent on refining their art. Beads by Design's shop and atelier contributes to this creative wellspring, and today the Southern Flames—a society of glass-bead makers—gather there for their monthly meetings. The shop opened in 1998, displaying a wealth of Japanese Delica seed beads, fire-polished and pressed glass beads, pearls, gemstones, and glittering Swarovski crystals under the high, exposed-metal roof. Visitors can pick up notions or tools, or stick around for jewelry-making classes. These begin with the basics of knotting wire rings and stringing necklaces and expand into the creation of broad, beaded cuffs inspired by Ndebele jewelry and macramé techniques for braiding copper wire. To give students complete creative control of their work, instructors provide propane torches attached to work tables, and safely teach how to fabricate glass beads and intimidate nay-saying critics.
