Giving the gift of jewellery is a great way to say, "I love you," "You're special," and "Sorry for auctioning off the dog." Repent with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $24 for a basic beading class for two (a $50 value), which is one to two hours long depending on class size
  • $49 for a basic beading class for four (a $100 value)
  • $69 for a three-hour lampwork class for one (a $150 value)

Held throughout the week, in-store beading classes include all materials as instructors demonstrate techniques used to hand make earrings, bracelets, and other pieces. Alternatively, lampwork classes teach students how to form glass beads through flame work.

Gecko Beads

Initially, beading for Marja Veldhoen was just a hobby. The then-graphic designer started sliding down the slippery crafting slope more than a decade ago after discovering Cindy Jenkins' book How to Make Glass Beads. Soon, she was hooked. Marja shares her zeal for unusual looking beads and jewellery that springs from nature's influence with students through courses teaching the art of inventing handmade wearables from semi-precious stones, pearls, and glass. Her Bead blog keeps crafters abreast of events and promotions, which can include trunk shows, tax-free offers, and workshops on installing chic beaded garage doors.
