Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouthfeel and clean finish of precious gems and metals. Show off sophisticated taste with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a basic stringing class (materials not included) at Alaska Bead Company (a $20 value). One of the largest bead distributers in the state, Alaska Bead Company instills the basics for budding beaders in classes held at their 4,000-square-foot space. Specializing in Japanese and Czech seed beads, as well as more glam globules such as Swarovski crystals and semiprecious stones, ABC lets students purchase the materials of their choice from their in-store selection, or bring their own, to encourage individually unique neck embellishments, bracelets, and underarm charms. The basic stringing techniques class is normally held Thursday nights from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., but Wednesday classes may also be an option if demand demands.
