$29 for a 90-minute Earring-Making Class (a $60 Value)
During 90-minute sessions, students make three unique pairs of earrings out of included materials, learning how to use the tools, construct the pieces, and size each individual earring to match its mate. Teachers also help students design earrings for people with metal sensitivities. Classes meet Thursdays 1:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. or on weekends by appointment.
Brighton Beads & More
Brighton Beads & More helps beadists, metal workers, and other artists fill their supply boxes and hone their craft. Experienced instructors teach novices and seasoned artists alike, helping them create custom art in a variety of classes. Students can sign up for skill-building classes—such as bead stringing, metalsmithing, and wire wrapping—or learn how to make specific pieces, such as fused-glass mirrors, decorative chains, and flame work glass beads. The calendar’s many offerings allow guests to work around brimming schedules or coordinate alibis for ice-cream-truck holdups. Brighton Beads & More also encourages customers to place orders for supplies they don’t carry and request custom classes they don’t offer so the staff can attempt to leap through beaded rings of fire to accommodate those wishes.
