Without jewelry, pearls would be nothing but oyster gallstones and treasure chests would contain nothing but dirty back issues of The Economist. Embrace the power of bling with today's Groupon to Just Bead Yourself in Westfield. Choose between the following options:
- For $18, you get a two-hour Afternoon Tea Party with My Doll & Me children's bead party (a $37.45 value).
- For $20, you get $40 toward a jewelry-making class.
A full-service bead emporium, Just Bead Yourself entertains and educates crafters of all ages with jewelry-making classes and events. At the Afternoon Tea Party with My Doll & Me bead party, kids ages 5–12 enjoy iced tea, lemonade, and cookies as instructors help them make matching necklaces for themselves and their favorite dolls. The process of fashioning self-made jewelry produces a sense of satisfaction that’s unmatched even by drafting an impressive fantasy curling team or finally realizing that you’re (spoiler alert) a ghost.
Crafty hopefuls ages 7 to adult can opt for classes to make accessories of their own. In one 90-minute session, students create a colorful interweave flower bracelet ($39), and in another, they design and build a double-strand, floating-bead illusion necklace ($35). Held in Just Bead Yourself’s purple-adorned workshop, all classes and tea parties come with basic materials and classroom use of tools and are staffed by friendly string theorists. Check the schedule for times.
