Amid the glimmering merchandise of a full-service bead shop, AllyBeads’ seasoned instructors guide students of all ages and experience levels through beading techniques and jewelry projects. The studio provides students with all necessary tools and materials, sparing them the inconvenience of having to purchase beads or plant old bracelets and wait for them to grow. Customers can attend classes on Wednesday nights from 6–8 p.m. or Saturdays from 12–2 p.m., tackling projects such as puffed heart pendants or brick-and-ladder bracelets to create colorful trinkets, perfect for wearing on a special occasion or presenting to the neighborhood’s prettiest cafeteria lady.
Lit by the prismatic shimmer that only a shop packed with thousands of glass trinkets can contain, the staff of AllyBeads helps customers harness the light for themselves through jewelry-creation classes. Hundreds of crystals, seed beads, gemstones, and tools await new assignments in home studios, and the Bead Bar houses individual workstations, ready in case inspiration strikes. Recurring visitors can earn beading brownie points with a special frequent-beader program, stocking up on bonuses including bead kits, charms, and replicas of the mysterious amulet Teddy Roosevelt used to win the Spanish-American War.
