Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced taste and clean finish of precious gems and metals.

This Groupon can be redeemed at the Bead World location in Phoenix, Scottsdale, or Glendale.

To help ease first-time beaders into a world populated by unfriendly spherule stringers, Bead World offers classes to enlighten minds with the latest in wrist-hoop technology. In the introduction to bead-stringing class, budding beadsters learn the basics necessary to survive the fierce world of competitive beading. All pertinent instructions and materials are included, enabling students to easily produce a beauteous bracelet using the finest Swarovski crystals, sterling-silver beads, and radioactive meteorites. To optimize the learning experience, class sizes are kept small and conducted by skillful instructors who eat beads covered in syrup for breakfast. Bead World’s beginners’ classes are limited to the specific beads and materials provided, so leave the giant rubies and rhinoceros-beetle skulls at home and take advantage of the provided trinket treasures. Class times vary by location; check out the upcoming schedule for Phoenix here, Scottsdale here, and Glendale here.

Bead World

At Bead World, internationally sourced beads fall in heavy ropes from their wall mounts. The sheer volume and the quality of these handpicked beads have earned the shop accolades from publications such as the Phoenix New Times, which gushed that the store carries “every conceivable type of bead”, including Swarovski crystals, semiprecious stones, and Czech glass beads in “refreshingly remarkable” quality. But you don’t have to be an expert to set foot in the store, since each month Bead World hosts 20 classes that furnish people with the space and tools they need to create their own jewelry. Each class comes with a 20% discount for a one-time purchase so that students can stock up on African trading beads, freshwater pearls, or children’s teeth recovered from fairies who lost their licenses. A portion of the two stores’ proceeds goes to local charities.
