A Bead of Roses

The experienced bead herders and metal wranglers who oversee the family-owned A Bead of Roses studio perpetuate the art of handmade, artisan jewelry. No prior experience is necessary to drop in on classes such as Beading 101 or Introduction to Precious Metal Clay Workshop, where the studio’s staff teaches students to shape and fire pendants from malleable gold and silver particle clay. In metalsmithing classes, students learn to wield a torch or a sneezy dragon’s snout to forcefully solder elegant necklaces. Classes take walk-in students or can be arranged for group events. A wide-ranging inventory of high-quality items—from feather hair extensions to hemp cord—keeps rivers of creativity from ever being dammed.

Very nice place I had great time.
Rose S. · November 15, 2012
My cousin and I went to the class and what a wonderful time we had. Lisa is a warm, fun person. When it comes to teaching she is patient and makes it fun. I can not wait to attend another class.

Lisa is welcoming and friendly - she makes it easy to learn something new because she is so patient and encouraging. They offer a nice variety of classes (this was my second one) and I plan on taking others in the future. The atmosphere in the shop is relaxing and cheerful - it's one of my new favorite places!
