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 $10, you get $20 worth of glass beads, birthday parties, and more at the Bead Hive in Marietta.
The friendly workers will help you mine the Hive's massive assortment of freshwater pearls ($7 and up for a 16" strand), Czech glass beads ($2 and up per strand), and Swarovski crystals ($0.15 and up). Once you've determined your decoratives, you can also find the beading tools ($6.95+) you need to transform them into glittering earrings, retro-elegant necklaces, and tiaras that grant +5 dexterity. The Bead Hive also arranges birthday parties where crafty kids age 6–9 ($12 per child) can transform memory-wire chokers, beads, and charms into one-of-a-kind ornamentation. Older miniature novelty adults (aged 10 and up; $15 per child) can work the same magic with a more advanced Loopy Tattoo beaded necklace or charms.
