On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dream catchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of beading and jewelry supplies at Planet Bead in Hillsboro.

Planet Bead's rainbow-like selection of crafts bedazzles shoppers with a multicolored selection of crystals, crimp beads, clasps, and other artsy accouterments. Friendly staffers impart neophyte necklace makers with beading basics, and seasoned Swarovski stringers scoop up semiprecious gemstones and silver-plated headpins ($4.75 for 100). Globetrotting tastemakers can trowel through a trove of international treasures, including Japanese Miyuki beads and Czech glass beads, or savor a strand of Swedish meatballs.

Meanwhile, shimmering strings of freshwater pearls—available in more than 50 shapes and sizes—eagerly await bare necklines ($4+ per strand). Instead of sporting a hairnet filled with bioluminescent anglerfish, shoppers can assemble a sparkling adornment with supplies such as 14- to 28-gauge sterling-silver- and gold-filled wire, pliers, and polishing cloth.


Four Insider Pagers give Planet Bead a four-star average, and three Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average:

  • Over 6000 square feet of beads and related supplies. If they don't have it, you probably don't need it! – Jeanne F., Yelp, 2/1/09
  • The place has a very large selection of beads. The staff has been very helpful when I need help with putting together my color selections. – Sherry H., Insider Pages

Planet Bead

Overflowing with Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and more than 150 varieties of freshwater pearls, Planet Bead's extensive bead collection furnishes DIYers and beading students with the tools create custom jewelry. The beads are available á la carte, along with a selection of beading kits and instruction books. Meanwhile, in a classroom stocked with comfy chairs and custom-built crafting tables, resident bead experts guide students through complex patterns during one-day workshops. Each class focuses on a single project, such as making an anklet from Czech seed beads or guessing the number of beads Hulk Hogan could thread into his mustache.
