People celebrate special occasions by decorating things with curios, as evidenced by hanging ornaments on Christmas trees and emptying drums of diamonds over winning coaches. Be a gem with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission to any jewelry-making class at Bead Your Addiction in Camarillo (up to a $25 value).
The jewelry experts at Bead Your Addiction introduce aspiring jewelry-makers to the ins and outs of stringing beads in an assortment of hands-on classes in private and group sessions. Virtually every inch of the store’s interior drips with colorful orbs and materials, giving students the opportunity to craft wearables from sterling silver, semi-precious gemstones, Czech glass, and kryptonite. After selecting materials—which are not included with this Groupon and can range from $10 to $35 on average—students learn the secrets of bead stringing, wire wrapping, pearl knotting, or crafting Swarovski-crystal tennis bracelets. Though classes operate without a set schedule, instructors will accommodate single students or groups and work with them at a comfortable pace, keeping the rivers of creativity from ever being dammed.
