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 $15, you get $30 toward supplies, finished designs, or jewelry-making classes at Bead Me by Linda Minor in Southend.

A former jewelry buyer for major department stores, Linda Minor brings her passion for fashion and eye for sparkle to bedeck bauble-less bodies in unique, handcrafted designs. Enlist her expert accouterment advice by using today's deal toward any class (Groupon holders enlisting in a class less than $30 can put the unused value toward other goods). Learn the intricacies of stringing and crimping in the basic stringing-and-chain-necklace class ($40), pick up the ins and outs of fashionable furrow making in an etching-pendant class ($40), or finally discover what compels your jewelry to tangle itself while you sleep as you solder your own pair of sterling-silver earrings ($80).

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. Those already in possession of mad trinketing skills can use their Groupon to stock up on supplies such as watch faces ($8+), semiprecious stones ($40+), and a full line of findings (starting at $2). The shop also outfits bare necks, wrists, and lobes with already made designs and one-of-a-kind pieces for both men and women.

Bead Me by Linda Minor

Linda Minor, a member of the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths and a former fashion buyer for J.C. Penney and Belk department stores, sells handmade creations within Bead Me’s spacious shop. Her first designed jewelry, which has been recognized as American-made by Martha Stewart, was chosen to be given to First Lady Michelle Obama on behalf of the city of Charlotte, NC. She draws from her style expertise to create necklaces, earrings, and bracelets with pearls, coral, turquoise, Swarovski crystals, and semiprecious gemstones. Many of her pieces incorporate copper, an antimicrobial metal that resists fading. During fun, BYOB jewelry-making classes, Linda imparts her beading know-how to students of all skill levels, giving them hands-on practice with metal-manipulation techniques such as fold forming and reverse psychology.
