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 $35, you get your choice of a bracelet- or earring-making workshop at Team Blonde in Forest Park. One-hour workshops are offered with this Groupon at 11:30 a.m. on Mondays, 11:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
Established by a flaxen-haired pair of jewelry designers, Team Blonde tenders eye-catching creations among a host of attractive boutique items and spa services. The studio houses beads and baubles ideal for making earrings, bracelets, or a whimsical Eye of Agamotto. Spirited crafters can choose to create either a beaded bracelet or three pairs of earrings, after which a Team Blonde jewelry guru will add clasps and ear wires to each matchless masterpiece. Classes are kept to the intimate size of 5–10 adornment artists to allow for individualized attention and to avoid impinging upon the endangered earring's delicate ecosystem.
