It’s a well-known fact that silence is golden, which is why the finest precious-metal jewelry will make no noise when hit with a hammer. Make your own serene fineries with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an introductory beading class at Beads of Providence (up to a $40 value).
Beads of Providence arms aspiring artisans with the requisite skills to craft their own stylish beaded jewelry and accessories. Expand your crafting palette in a variety of different introductory classes, each with its own project that hones a particular jewelry-making skill. Students can make semiprecious stones shine in solidarity with silver or gold spacers in the Stringing class, or learn how to make gorgeous earrings that double as bomb-defusing devices in the Wire Wrapping lesson. Amateur artists can also master the intricate peyote stitch and construct a bracelet of glimmering cubic beads, or take home a silk cord and pearl necklace after learning how to knot with silk (the knotting class costs an additional $5 not included in today's deal). In each roughly two-hour course, supervisory bead masters will carefully explain the minutiae of bead techniques and the dangers of trying to thread beads of their own sweat.
