Without jewelry-making classes, humans with a desire to adorn themselves would only have recourse to mud masks and capes made of paintings. Learn a more wearable craftsmanship with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a jewelry-making class of your choice at Colorful Creations Bead Company in East Longmeadow (a $25 value).
Since owner Emily Rose opened Colorful Creations Bead Company as a teenager in 2005, the shop has grown to purvey jewelry supplies and instruction in the creation of wearable artworks. Past students have learned the Japanese braiding technique of Kumihimo, and constructed their own chain-maille bracelets to protect against malevolent cufflinks and carpal-tunnel darts. Other Colorful Creations sessions covering basic beading, earring creation, and varieties of stitching styles cast light on the subtleties and nuances of jewelry manufacture in a fun, casual environment. Check the Colorful Creations blog for more information on reserving a spot in an upcoming class.
