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 Studio DeLucca. Choose from two options:
- For $30, you get a beginner's jewelry-making class, which teaches you how to produce either a necklace or earrings (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of jewelry.
Studio DeLucca not only crafts exquisite corporeal adornments but also imparts lapidary know-how to students in two-hour workshops. Beginner-friendly classes with the masterful horologists are capped at 12 pupils, with a BYOB policy allowing students to lube their creative gears with glasses of pinot noir or an elegant flask of runny oatmeal. A session focused on necklace construction results in small, hand-printed disks dangling from a sterling silver chain, while the earring extravaganza workshop produces two pairs of silver earrings that can be worn home. If you decide to leave the construction to the pros, peruse the studio's jewelry selection, including gemstone-bearing earrings ($30–$50), sterling silver chain necklaces ($48–$88), and pearl or gemstone bracelets ($30–$50).
Tucked away in a refurbished 1940s barbershop, Studio DeLucca founder Khobe DeLucca and her team of jewelers festoon baubles of recycled silver and gold with gems sourced from artisans and fair-labor suppliers. Collections of stackable jewelry, such as amethyst bracelets and turquoise-drop necklaces, add a subtle sparkle to wrists and décolletages. Cocktail rings decorate favorite fingers with stones such as ocean jasper and green chrysoprase, and diamond-paved cigar-band rings exhibit old-world craftsmanship that hearkens back to the sparkling sidewalks of ancient Rome. A workshop series teaches novice lapidaries basic techniques to craft their own necklaces, earrings, and enamel jewelry.
