Giving the gift of jewelry is a great way to say, I love you, I’m sorry, and I didn’t know you couldn’t give a baby coffee. Speak through sparkles with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $15 for a 1.5-hour basic beading bracelet class (a $30 value, including written instructions and all materials)
- $10 for $20 worth of beading supplies
- $12 for a 1.5-hour twisted-vine earrings class (a $25 value, including all materials)<p>
Students can master jewelry-making techniques—such as bending wire and beading—to create either fashionable twisted-vine earrings accented with Swarovski crystals or custom beaded bracelets. See the class schedule for upcoming basic beading bracelet or twisted-vine earrings classes. Those looking to simply shop can pick up items such as a pewter cat charm ($2.20), antique copper chains (starting at $1.50), or a 16-inch strand of amethyst ($18).<p>
Even if you arrive at Bead It! without an artistic vision, you won’t leave empty-handed. Around the shop, which holds crafting treasures that range from seed beads to semiprecious stones, staff members are stationed to help you select materials and fine-tune jewelry designs. For more in-depth aid, head to one of the varied classes and learn how to stamp metal, sculpt tulip origami earrings from precious-metal clay, or wind decorative wire around a fused-glass pendant. Of course, customers are welcome to forgo any outside input and select their own jewelry components—pewter charms, gold or sterling-silver chains, and Swarovski pearls make it difficult to fail.
