What You'll Get
Without jewelry, pearls would be nothing but oyster gallstones and treasure chests would contain nothing but dirty back issues of The Economist. Embrace the power of bling with today's Groupon: For $25, you get a funky heart and key necklace jewelry design class with $25 worth of materials, or $50 worth of classes or materials at Creative U in Cave Creek. You may use a maximum of $25 toward materials, but the entire $50 value is good for any classes.
Creative U is a jewelry-crafting studio that offers both materials and classes in a variety of styles and techniques. A funky heart & key necklace design class ($35 value) lasts from two to three hours, and grants noble customers $25 worth of materials with which to craft chunky statement jewelry. After a friendly, knowledgeable instructor guides you through the process of making necklace components from copper or silver and wire wrap beads, you'll learn how to clasp the whole thing together like a much more wearable version of a Frankenstein. If funky hearts aren't your cup of funk, use your Groupon toward any class that's offered, or simply to stock up on materials for your gleaming dragon hoard. Check the studio's schedule to explore the ever-shifting collection of classes, which range from basic to advanced jewelry making.
Owners Kathy Doherty and Debbie Hunt opened Creative U when they discovered the need for a studio where DIY jewelers could make and store their jewelry projects. Saunter into this citadel of style and work alongside experienced and novice artists while channeling your own bedazzling potential. Whether you want to craft a one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one, or simply hope to switch over to an all-wire wardrobe, you'll achieve your goals within Creative U's inspiring confines.
