I loved the classes I took at Bead & Pearl-- wonderful, patient, creative teachers in a lovely, calm atmosphere!

What You'll Get


Without jewelry, pearls would be nothing but oyster gallstones and treasure chests would contain nothing but dirty back issues of The Economist. Embrace the power of bling with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of jewelry-making classes at Bead & Pearl's Newton Highlands location. Classes are small, so you'll get plenty of one-on-one tutoring in modish metallurgy. If the class you select costs less than $60, you can apply the remainder of your Groupon toward an additional class for you or a friend. This deal does not cover the cost of materials for the classes, but the use of all tools is free.

Bead & Pearl's class schedule gives newbies a chance to learn the basics in stringing techniques ($35), silk thread knotting ($35), and the surprisingly unhallucinogenic peyote stitch cuff bracelet ($35). Both beginners and more practiced practitioners can try their hand at making briolette earrings ($35) with chain and wire or crocheting a bracelet with beads and wire ($45). Classes can take between 90 minutes (roughly an episode of Saturday Night Live) and three hours (approximately 240 videos of cats falling down). Space is limited, so book ahead.

Featured classes this month include the basics of crafting your own bracelet with natural materials ($35) and creating a beaded headband using a wide selection of colors ($35). Self-made jewelry produces a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost.

About Bead & Pearl


Bead & Pearl's myriad jewelry-crafting classes illuminate the art of creating your own adornments as students learn a range of skills from basic stringing techniques to crocheting and wire stamping. The classes welcome even stone-cold beginners, and since classes are project based, instructors narrate every necessary step of the process as students create their pieces. This practice ensures that students don't have to come to class with prior knowledge from art camp or a past life as a ball of yarn that rejected a family career in kitten baiting to pursue its crafting dreams. Using the store's colorful inventory of beads, crystals, and gold and silver findings, classes give students the opportunity to create traditional bead jewelry as well as opulent rings and jewelry knitted from silk and leather. Customers can also purchase individual materials for at-home crafting or enlist the expertise of the staff to design jewelry or repair damaged pieces by heavyweights such as Chanel and Ralph Lauren.
