Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouthfeel and clean finish of precious gems and metals. Show off sophisticated taste with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of beads, crystals, findings, and jewellery tools at Beadworks. This Groupon is valid at Beadworks’ Granville Island and Port Moody locations.
Beadworks stocks thousands of beads, tools, and jewellery-making accoutrements to custom craft a glamorous array of accessories. Chic epidermis enhancers are born by tossing a clawful of 6mm Czech fire-polish beads ($0.25 each) onto a 12"x19" flocked jewellery design board ($9.95), much like during a royal game of Yahtzee. Accrue style points with the triumphant placement of a Swarovski 16mm cosmic bead ($7.85 each), perhaps as an astral focal point. Align orbs once strung onto clear 49-strand Flexalon wire ($17.15 for a 30-foot spool) to cultivate a unified bracelet or necklace. Self-made jewellery produces a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost.
The gem-impassioned staff of Beadworks supports curious artisans by dispensing aesthetic pointers and fielding beading inquiries. Perpetually updated wares retain an eye on current trends with styles set to suit soccer moms and mister moms alike.
