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 to Pearlwear in Solana Beach. Choose from the following options:
• For $29, you get a beginner’s beading class, including class materials (a $58 value).
• For $19, you get $38 worth of finished jewelry.
• For $24, you get a pair of pearl earrings (up to a $49.90 value).
For eight years, expert jeweler Xinyi Wang has designed and crafted custom jewelry, taught jewelry-making classes, and outfitted crafters with fine beading materials and supplies plucked from around the world. In the classes, which are limited to seven or eight participants, Xinyi supplies intrepid students with a selection of beads, including sparkling crystals and glowing strands of pearls. Then, under Xinyi’s expert guidance, students design and create their own jewelry or use the beads to stage marbles tournaments on the floor. After the class, students can take their sparkling handiwork home for admiration or accessorizing.
Pearlwear also provides an artisan selection of fine finished jewelry. A teal pendant with a delicate yellow and white flower accent adds a delicate bloom to blouses and blazers ($9.99). Or, put the cost of your Groupon toward a handmade three-strand lapis necklace, whose strands of deep, royal azure beads showcase natural variations in the shiny stones ($124.90). Alternatively, a pair of pearl earrings adds a classic luminosity to earlobes or can be disassembled and guiltily returned to the giant undersea clam kingdom from which they were stolen.
