Giving the gift of jewelry is a great way to say, "I love you," "You're special," and "Sorry for auctioning off the dog." Repent with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 to apply toward a two-hour bead-making class or any repairs, plus 15% off any materials at Bead Works, Inc. in Franklin.
The professional bead artistes at Bead Works help pupils explore the endless possibilities of handmade jewelry during each two-hour hands-on class. Classes allow knickknack neophytes to hone their skills at one of bead-making's various techniques, such as the basic method of bead stringing, the delicate art of earrings and wire wrapping, or the complex process of carving metal fasteners out of wood. Pupils purchase their own supplies from the store's selection of traditional and exotic beads; materials typically cost around $5 for basic bead projects and around $30 for most wire-wrapping projects. Patrons must pay the difference for classes that cost more than $25.
