Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouthfeel and clean finish of precious gems and metals. Show off sophisticated taste with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a wire wrapping or silver clay jewellery-making class at Jewellery Werx in the Lambeth Foodland Plaza (a $33.90 value, including HST).
Jewellery Werx is a make-your-own jewellery shop carrying a wide selection of supplies and hosting a variety of classes led by friendly, supportive instructors bent on bringing out the creative talent in everyone. A silver clay class teaches students to craft pendants, earrings, or rings out of clay consisting of silver particles, while a wire wrapping class teaches students to delicately coil stones or false teeth with sterling and argentium wire. Handcrafted jewellery makes a thoughtful, personal gift for friends and family and offers fashionistas a chance to show off their own dexterity and penchant for bling. Owner Lex Vandervelden, winner of the Maggy Creiderman award in art, has crafted a fun and relaxed learning environment for artisans of all skill levels to wrangle the wildest species of needle nosed pliers.
Groupon does not include the cost of materials. Expires in three months.
