The professional bead artists at Bead Works help pupils to explore the endless possibilities of handmade jewelry during each two-hour hands-on class. Classes allow knick-knack neophytes to hone their skills at one of various bead-making 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; class materials range from $10 to $60. Clients can also elect to replace or repair damaged baubles through Bead Works’ jewelry-repair services, or sport an original design contracted through the shop’s custom-design services.
Private groups can study the art of stringing beads and fashioning accessories in a five-person BYOB party. Gathered friends, family members, and enchanted mannequins learn to craft outfit-enhancing pieces by working alongside a Bead Works instructor in a two-hour session selected from the shop’s class listings. Customer-provided libations keep spirits joyous throughout the learning session, and jewelers take home all the sparkling pieces they create, handy for holiday gifting or replacing your family’s heirloom paperclip chain with something more meaningful.
