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: for $15, you get $30 worth of beads, fabrics, and more at Natural Expressions of Los Gatos. The Santa Cruz Avenue store is awash in vintage glass beads ($0.05+), Swarovski crystals, and semi-precious stones ($0.50+), customers can string their own bracelets and necklaces using pro BeadSmith and Beadalon jewelry-making tools, or peruse ready-made adornments hand-crafted by Natural Expressions' employees and elf interns. Natural Expressions also stocks a variety of 100% cotton fabrics ranging from exotic batiks to contemporary prints by designers such as Amy Butler ($8–$11 per yard), which crafty customers can convert into a stylish apron, pillowcase, or tree skirt in one of the store's sewing classes.
