The Colorado Bead Company's artful arrangers guide students through a schedule of beading classes and parties for kids and adults, helping develop personal flair and style. Each class engages up to eight pairs of grownup hands in two-hour tutorials on different facets of trinket construction, such as wire wrapping, patterning, and removing the wrappers from Ring Pops. The introductory Foundations class covers essential jewelry-making tools and how to wield them, providing all the hardware necessary to craft a newly minted necklace and earring set with beads purchased beforehand by the student. Idiosyncrasy is heartily embraced during in the Caged Stone class, which encourages apprentices to wire-wrap their own found objects. Supplies are not provided for this class, but stones ($3–$6) and wire ($4–$7) can be obtained from the showroom before the workshop. The Wrapped Stone Bracelet class results in one such wrist ornament with wire and a collection of student-picked stones ($1–$15) held together by a provided clasp and split ring, which ties together an ensemble and makes arms more beautiful than Venus's rock ballads.

Meanwhile, kids as well as adults fling open treasure chests with The Colorado Bead Company's 90-minute beading parties. Six guests are covered under this Groupon, but up to four more children or two more adults can be added at a cost of $20 per person. For kids parties only, all the necessary supplies are provided for each participant to take home a professional-looking bracelet, necklace, or suit of chain mail; adults must purchase supplies separately.

The Colorado Bead Company

Agates, amethysts, and luminous glass beads come alive in the settings that The Colorado Bead Company’s jewelry instructors help students design— elegant yet whimsical loops of wire, antique-looking chains, earring hoops that recall delicate dreamcatchers. Classes bring out the jewelry artist in kids, adults, and even first-time crafters who get to experience the thrill of walking out clad in the necklaces they've just designed. The shop glistens with strands and packets of such exotic baubles as freshwater pearls, hypoallergenic beads, and Swarovski crystal beads, ready to be incorporated into a new project or used to make a pair of maracas sound classier. Shoppers browse in a bright, open space lined with huge windows, hardwood floors, and airy flower prints.

Customer Reviews

Fabulous experience. I absolutely love the bracelet I made. I will come back for another class.

I attended the "Foundations" class, and it was awesome. We each made a necklace and earrings. The class was small, just 7 of us, which was perfect. Our instructor, Anne, was wonderful. Clearly quite experienced, she had an easy going and fun personality. She provided us with a general overview of materials, as well as tools and their specific uses. Her tips and suggestions for designing our pieces was great too, and her time management was spot-on so I didn't feel rushed. I'm really quite surprised at how pleased I am with my creation. The shop itself is nice and their prices seem pretty fair. Odds are excellent I'll attend another class at The Colorado Bead Company.
