Crafting jewelry becomes much easier once you learn to sort beads by size and color and identify which wires are too inflexible to eat. Safely fuel artistic prowess with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of beads, strands, and beading materials at Creations Unique.
Creations Unique's expansive art-supply bazaar summons customers' muses for a variety of projects, including beading and jewelry making. Resident artisans lead in-store projects, including a birthstone-studded letter bracelet ($30/strand plus $2.70/letter) and a silver-spaced, school-spirit bracelet ($25–$30), shepherding the process to ensure each bead in the customer's jeweled flock makes it home. For an at-home creative experience, snap up beads ranging from polished glass to semi-precious stones, including sparkling blue globes ($16/strand), glistening lavender oblongs ($12/strand), and tiny earth-toned pentacontagons ($14/strand). Much like dropping marshmallows in the fire completes an authentic campout, finishing touches such as clasps, string, and ornamental settings round out the ideal bauble.

Light radiates through a stained-glass rendering of a verdant grapevine. A fire-hued glass pendant dangles from a leather cord. These are just a few of the masterpieces by local artists at Creations Unique Studio, where professionals coalesce to craft jewelry and home decor, as well as helm hands-on classes. Under their expertise and instruction, students create beaded bracelets, wrangle precious metals into earrings, or learn the art of wire wrapping until they are able to give their favorite FBI agent a suitable Christmas present.
