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 between two options:
- For $30, you get a beginners' jewelry-making class focused on a necklace (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of jewelry.
In addition to crafting exquisite corporeal adornments to sell, the team at Studio DeLucca equips students with their own lapidary know-how in two-hour workshops. Beginner-friendly classes are capped at 12 pupils and focus on necklace construction. Classes result in small, hand-printed disks in gold- or silver-tone dangling from a choice of gunmetal, antiqued brass, or antiqued copper 18-inch chains, complete with a freshwater pearl. If you decide to leave the assembly to the pros, peruse the studio's jewelry selection to find items including gemstone-bearing earrings ($30–$50), sterling-silver chain necklaces ($48–$88), and pearl or gemstone bracelets ($30–$50). Upgrades are available for chains ($5-$50) and gemstones ($10-$24).
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.
