What You'll Get
Without jewelry, style-conscious individuals would be forced to glue gems and scraps of precious metal directly to their delicate skin. Experience the eureka moment of the first jewelry maker with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 to put toward classes and class materials at Bead Q!, a bead and jewelry supply shop. Today's deal can be redeemed at Bead Q!'s Chagrin Falls location. This Groupon is not valid for private classes or for materials fees for etching pendants or dichroic classes.
The bead emporium hosts coveted classes for jewelry-crafting pilgrims, ranging from the basic techniques of Beading 101 to the Level 27 magical Loremaster powers of advanced metalsmithing. Basic classes range in price from $32 to $42, and more-advanced classes range from $38 (soldering and forming lentil charms) to $135 (bezel setting and intro to silversmithing). If you have any of your $50 Groupon credit left after registering for a class, spend it on the materials necessary for the class, or use it toward bringing a friend along or taking a second class. The store's quaint, whitewashed façade conceals a dragon's den of beads, gemstones, and jewelry-crafting supplies, some of which, like dragons, spew fire. Beads are arranged in an organized and beautiful manner on a variety of tabletops and in glass display cases, simplifying the hunt-and-gather process for nomadic artisans. The bead collection comes from countries around the world, and 90% of the semi-precious beads are handpicked and gem-graded A+ by sparkling schoolmarms.
Bead Q! puts beauty into the hands of the beholder, leading to a sense of accomplishment rivaling that of a financially successful mime. A friendly, knowledgeable staff is ready to answer questions about their craft.
