Jewelry can make an outfit sparkle, though only exposure to dangerous amounts of radiation can make it truly glow. Stay safe while looking sharp with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of beads and supplies at The Bead Biz in Helena.
At The Bead Biz, friendly artisans help patrons craft custom accessories or discover sparkling baubles with a large inventory of glass beads, gemstones, tools, and ready-made jewelry. Presented with mountains of glistening Swarovski crystals, Czech-glass beads, and Japanese-style seed beads, customers can decorate chains and wires or give them as gifts to jazz up Christmas trees. Lilac-hued walls bear strands laden with coral, turquoise, jasper, and agate ($9+), and beaded earrings ($5+) await the chance to accentuate lobes. At the store’s complimentary workstation, cheerful staff members give advice freely on how to string purchases, make an earring loop, and navigate forests with a trail of bead crumbs.
