Without jewelry, pearls would be nothing but oyster gallstones, and treasure chests would contain nothing but dirty back issues of The Economist. Embrace the power of bling with today's Groupon to Beadniks in Park City. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get admission to a two-hour basic beading 101 class at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays (a $45 value).
- For $15, you get $30 worth of nonconsignment jewelry, beads, and beading materials.
Beadniks stirs up stagnant imaginations with a sweeping showcase of rare beads, beadwork materials, and custom-designed jewelry. Crafty customers can browse strands of semiprecious stones ($2+), loose beads ($0.05+ each), and other raw materials to imagine DIY adornments for naked necks, wrists, and imaginary 11th toes.
During a basic beading 101 class, up to four neophytes catch on to beading basics by finishing a bracelet and a pair of earrings under the guidance of a friendly and knowledgeable instructor. Pay heed to the instructor's guidance, as he or she can answer all manner of complex questions, such as "How do I use a crimp bead?" and "What's the square root of 11?" While materials are not included in the price of the class, students do get access to specialized pliers, helpful stringing gnomes, and other beading tools. See Beadniks' online schedule for more details.
