$10 for $20 Worth of Jewelry, Jewelry-Making Classes, and Beading Supplies
Classes in basic beading ($15 registration fee, plus $7–$15 in materials), wire wrapping ($20, plus $15–$25 in materials), and macramé ($15, plus $5+ in materials) impart expert tricks and techniques. Jewelry-making materials such as amethysts ($0.75 each), freshwater pearls ($0.20 each), and glass beads (up to $2.50 each) create custom baubles to complement Queen Beads’ collection of antique and one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry ($12 for bracelets; $75 for necklaces).
The expert staff at Queen Beads bestows its customers with a spectrum of materials and guides fledgling jewelry makers during small, hands-on classes and craft-centric birthday parties. Each student can learn the essentials and make a bracelet during a basic-beading class, master simple and versatile macramé, or turn the fruits of chain-bracelet classes into festive saddles for lilliputian horses. Patrons can design their own necklaces out of coral, turquoise, and glass beads, or purchase recycled-glass beads, whose profits benefit primary and secondary schools in Ghana. Queen Beads’ displays also twinkle with vintage and unique modern jewelry, from dainty bracelets to beguiling necklaces.
