People celebrate special occasions by decorating things with baubles, as evidenced by hanging ornaments on Christmas trees and emptying drums of diamonds over winning coaches. Bauble up with today’s Groupon to The Bead Lounge in Woodland Hills. Choose between the following options, which exclude the PMC and Fused Glass classes, can include only one Wire Wrapping class, and include a 10% discount on materials on class day:
- For $30, you get two classes of your choice (up to a $60 value).
- For $65, you get five classes of your choice (up to a $135 value).
The Bead Lounge’s classes teach amateur horologists to string a glittering assortment of semiprecious stones and Swarovski crystals through wire and leather. In the Beading Knotting Basics class, crafters trade trinket-lassoing tips as they string and separate beads with professional-style knots, and Wire Wrapping for Beginners teaches necklace novices how to bind wires across the super-powered arms of an arch-nemesis or into a fancy bracelet. Greenhorn jewelers can create fashionable leather wrap bracelets or necklaces in the Leather Knotting class, in which students incorporate beads by sewing them on with silk.
In addition to the two or five classes, which are scheduled according to student convenience, each class type includes one free refresher course within six months to maintain bead-brandishing skills. Patrons should arrive 30 minutes before class to purchase beads and materials, and discuss how to turn an 8”x10” Glamour Shot into a locket.
