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 The Bead Lady in Concord. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a jewelry-making class (a $30 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of beading supplies and more.
Outfitted with 3,100 square feet of beads, gemstones, pearls, metals, chains, and findings, The Bead Lady stocks jewelry makers and bead enthusiasts with a multitude of crafting supplies. Learn to forge custom jewelry or sparkly jumpsuits with a choice of two different jewelry-making classes, including the chain-wrapping class, which teaches students how to link chain together with wrapping wire and beads and lasts one to two hours. During the 90-minute basic-beading class, bauble buffs learn ornamentation fundamentals, such as standard jewelry length, the uses of different-gauged soft wire, and the proper handling of crimping tools for styling your ’80s-themed hair summit. Both classes include all supplies.
Adept craftspeople can assemble their own arsenal of beading supplies from the showroom, which houses thousands of beads sold by the strand, as well as beading accessories and pendants culled from the world’s accouterment fields. Rummage through six fully stocked and categorized bead rooms, filled with African trade beads, glass pearls, and more. String a strand of black coral ($30 for 16” strand) around the Christmas log, or end a years-long hunt for leopard-skin faceted chunk ($12.99 for 16” strand) beads. Shoppers overwhelmed by the bevy of beaded goodness can enlist the expertise of friendly and knowledgeable staff.
