What You'll Get
Beauty generally lazes in the eye of the beholder and doesn’t fare much better hanging around the mouth. Put beauty in its proper wearable place with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of beads, jewelry-making supplies, and artisanal jewelry at Gifts of Avalon on NW 16th Boulevard.
A part of Gainesville's bead scene for almost two decades, Gifts of Avalon stocks 2,500 square feet of jewelry-creation necessities as well as locally-crafted and imported pieces for purchase. Craft mavens and jewelry-making newcomers alike will find a rainbow explosion of beads lighting up walls and blanketing tables. Among the offerings fit to complement any epidermis are Swarovski crystal beads ($4 and up), fashionable carved gemstones ($4–$19), Czech seed beads (varying prices), and more. Further bling building blocks include an array of pliers and wire cutters ($8–$12), flexible stringing wire ($7.50–$18 for a 30’ spool), assorted needles ($2.25 for 4), and trade books. The expansive shop also stocks ready-to-wear pieces that make a hearty boon for gift buyers, modern-day fashionistas, and the relapsing spirit of Marie Antoinette.
