Without art, walls would be bare, hearts would be vacant, and parents' savings would go toward retirement and not toward their 26-year-old's studio apartment. Embrace wearable art with today's Groupon: for $20, you get your choice of any two-hour jewelry-making class plus $10 worth of materials at Stony Creek Bead in Ypsilanti (a $40 value). This Groupon is valid for any class regularly priced at $30. Cost of materials varies between $10 and $50 depending on the class. For more information, please call Stony Creek Bead before registering.

Stony Creek Bead plants bead-sized seeds of artistic talent in the hearts of aspiring crafters with a summer roster of hands-on classes led by expert guides. Most sessions culminate in the completion of a necklace, bracelet, or other original piece of beaded jewelry, and more complicated projects give students the knowledge they need to finish at home. Instructors can provide tips on adding individual flourishes while also advising students on how much material to purchase, so Czech glass and Turtle Soup beads efficiently find their way onto wrists and are not bedazzled onto puppies. Each two-hour class, which includes all necessary materials, is limited to eight students to ensure individual attention. A June 4 class beguiles beaders with step-by-step instruction for creating Trellis, In Blue, a necklace that gleams with sapphire-colored beads and struts with a sophistication normally reserved for monocled peanut spokesmen.

Stony Creek Bead

Czech glass, polymer clay, and Swarovski crystals glitter along the walls of Stony Creek Bead's interior, waiting to add their sparkle to bracelets, necklaces, and baubles created by visiting beaders. Buyable jewelry crafted by local artisans also dots the shelves and displays, lending inspiration as they await purchase. The knowledgeable and patient staff leads the way to customer-created wares, referencing the shop’s kits, books, patterns, and tools, and leading classes on beading techniques, jewelry making, and lessons on why the “a” in bead is silent.

Customer Reviews

Awesome store! Large selection, very well organized. We had a lot of fun in our class. Kim was great at being able to tell exactly where each of us was in the project. She could spot whatever we might be doing wrong right away and explain it to us. Fun class; fun store. Very difficult to not walk out with a ton of beads, even if you were only going in "to look"! :)

The shop is in a good locale, great hours, personalized service, family own/run. Clean, great selection, knowlegeable and interesting. I'm taking a second class, based on how my first (Groupon) class went.
