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 an Introduction to Jewelry beading class at Sea of Beads in the West Anderson Plaza (a $30 value).
During the two-hour Intro to Jewelry course at Sea of Beads, pupils cover the basics of appendage ornamentation, learning how to manipulate the various tools, stringing materials, and findings. After mastering the basic loop and coil, arty apprentices will be able to create a single-strand necklace or bracelet, a simple pair of earrings, or a suit of armor fit for duels on the red carpet. Though the instructor provides necessary wire, crimps, and implements, students should purchase bead provisions prior to tutelage—Groupon customers get 10% off class materials at the Sea of Beads boutique. Amidst glistening cascades of stringable gems, semi-precious stones clink against pearls and Czech glass sparkles beside aged Cheerios. Check the Sea of Beads calendar for a schedule of upcoming class times.
