What You'll Get


Handmade jewelry has come a long way from its earliest failed incarnations of popcorn strings and daisy chains, both of which proved too great for the willpower of kleptomaniac nesting birds. Assemble a more permanent adornment with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $17 for a two-hour Intro to Beading class, including supplies (a $40 value)
  • $17 for a two-hour Wire Loop class, including supplies (a $40 value)
  • $35 for a three-hour Wire Crochet class, including supplies (a $70 value)<p>

During two-hour Intro to Beading classes, students immerse themselves in the fundamentals of jewelry making, learning how to design pieces, assemble them, and properly use tools. In two-hour Wire Loop classes, they’ll manipulate wire into a link form that holds beads for dangly earrings and bracelets. Otherwise, they’ll become pros at using large crochet hooks to create unique beaded necklaces during two-and-a-half-hour Wire Crochet classes. Check the schedule for dates and times.<p>

About Beads on the Ave


Beads on the Ave combines an impressive selection of gewgaws with expert instruction from the likes of Tonia Turner, affectionately known as "The Bead Doctor." Inside the shop, Swarovski pendants, semiprecious and precious stones, and glittering pieces from local artists glimmer as light floods through them from the all-glass storefront. In the spacious back room, instructors lead up to 25 students through a range of hands-on classes, teaching them how to create stunning works of wearable art as they sip on brought-from-home libations. The teacher provides supplies appropriate for each class, though they may charge extra for specialty beads, more expensive materials, or top-secret access codes to the White House's ruby vault.
