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 original designs contracted through the shop’s custom-design services.

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.<p>
