Animals utilize accessories in the wild to gain attention—peacocks' plumage helps them attract mates, and gorillas keep pet kittens to appear sensitive to the ladies. Follow Mother Nature's example with today's Groupon: for $120, you get a glass-jewelry-crafting party for four from Home Fusion (a $240 value). Classes take place at customers' homes within a 50-mile radius of the center of Reno or at the Alf Sorensen Community Center in Sparks.
Home Fusion travels to clients' homes toting an assortment of materials and apparatuses for a three-hour glass-jewelry-making class, enabling attendants to craft their own, sand-based bobbles. Gather three friends, family members, or identical clones, and learn the art of glass fusing alongside Home Fusions' experienced artisan. Accessorizers manufacture an original piece from a selection of glasses, utilizing a slew of specialized equipment, including glasscutters and breakers. Once the hand-made ornaments are assembled, the Fusion host cements the shape and style of the collection in a portable kiln, before finishing them in-studio to ensure each piece properly cools and refrains from roughhousing with careless stone pendants. All participants receive their hand-crafted trinkets the following day.
