For many Americans, beaded jewelry brings back nostalgic memories of the elementary-school hours they spent stringing together colorful gifts in order to appease the school's dragon. Relive those happy times with today's Groupon: for $35, you get enrollment in Intro Jewelry Making 1 and Intro Jewelry Making 2 (a $55 value) plus a $15 credit to use toward beads for the first class at beads etc. in Lakeside Hills Plaza (a $70 total value). Classes are scheduled throughout the week.
After beads etc.'s helpful, friendly staff helps students find the best beads among its selection of more than 250,000 pieces, eager beaders will then spend 90 minutes boning up on the basics in Intro Jewelry Making 1. Once students have gained the beads' trust, they'll be free to advance to the next tier of adornment creation with the 90-minute Intro Jewelry Making 2 class, in which students will make a dangle key chain and one pair of earrings with six- and eight-millimeter Swarovski crystals. The enrollment for this second-level course includes costs for all necessary materials.
The team behind beads etc. doesn't just sell a wide variety of beads—they teach their customers how to transform the baubles into jewelry through an array of classes. Some focus on simple tasks, such as how to make a single-strand necklace, while others cover more advanced techniques, like crocheting a beaded bracelet. To round out the selection, other classes teach techniques for making fused glass pendants and other bead-free jewelry.
