Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Bolster artistic inclinations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a DIY Layered Dicro Pendant class at Bella Glass Studios, Inc. (a $30 value). Classes are currently planned for the middle of the week (afternoons and evenings), Saturday evenings, and Sunday mornings.
Passionate artists at Bella Glass Studios equip students with the tools and know-how to create their own expressive glass art and jewelry. Each 60- to 90-minute design-your-own pendant class utilizes dichroic layered glass to create multihued pendants, great for hanging on necklaces, turning into magnets, or embellishing a superhero belt. Six to 36 students learn to etch and layer their pieces, selecting from assorted glass colors and a variety of designs. Pendants come with their own bail, necklace chain, and list of dietary restrictions, and can be picked up after firing the afternoon following the day of the class. Thanks to Bella Glass Studios' on-site, cash-only bar, which proffers beer and wine during classes (additional cost for drinks), pendant-making classes can become bubbly, art-studded social outings.
