Whether building a log cabin with only an axe and a collection of encyclopedias, or catching dinner with cardboard boxes propped up by bait carrots, there’s just something satisfying about doing it yourself. Today’s Groupon lets you scratch the DIY itch with a sparkly twist: $40 gets you $80 worth of jewelry or jewelry-making classes and parties from Dragonfly Designs.
Dragonfly Designs’ carcanet-crafting curriculum, taught by the company’s Fly Girls, offers courses and camps for all ages. Post-kids can run the glittering gamut from basic bead-stringing to advanced adventures in copper etching in the adult jewelry-making classes (materials included, $55–$110). The jewelry-making parties, such as the Bead Bash, let guests have their sterling silver–clasped cake and eat it, too, as the coruscating creations are taken home in party-favor pouches (party packages start at $300). For the after-school crowd, apply the Groupon toward a Beaded Birthday Party, which will vault kids out of the yawn-inducing world of macaroni necklaces and into the more interesting realm of waxed Irish linen and wirework ($380 for 15 guests). Dragonfly Designs will travel throughout San Diego, South Orange County and South Riverside County for parties and classes.
If artisanship or goldsmithing would be an albatross around your neck, this Groupon is also good toward Dragonfly Designs’ already existent jewelry ($21+), made by owner and artist Stacee Gillelen. Dragonfly Designs’ pieces are handmade and customizable. If purchasing jewelry, your Groupon can only be used at Dragonfly Designs' online store. You can have your order delivered for a $5 flat shipping fee, which your Groupon can be used toward (online orders over $100 always ship free).

- They put on a terrific party, with an amazing selection of beads, tremendous patience, and great senses of humor. It was a delight. – Ayelet W., Yelp, 5/31/09
- The quality and selection of the beads is amazing and the wires and clasps are of high quality. The Dragonfly crew is so great with the kids and really kept the girls interested. – busymommy2
