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: for $20, you get $40 worth of beading accessories, jewelry, and classes at The New England Bead Company, located in Ashland.
The New England Bead Company decorates delicate wrists, elegant ears, and nude necklines with a plethora of beads and jewelry while offering a cascade of classes from the knowledgeable staff of stringologists. Form personalized pieces with gleaming gems including natural stones, Czech glass, and pearls, or join in a class to loosen digits and output beaded bliss. Adult fingers can learn how to assemble jewelry, attach clasps, or dominate beading battles against schoolyard bullies in Basic Stringing Techniques ($25 plus materials), while youngsters can show off pliable pinkies during the Decorate an Ornament class ($7.50) or the Bungee Charm Bracelet class ($15). Children will expand their creativity, learn valuable beading skills, and get a jump-start on presents for next year's Flag Day.
In the spirit of beaded benevolence, the majority of The New England Bead Company’s extensive selection is purchased through Beads for Good, a company owned by a non-profit dedicated to serving humanity through relief and education projects around the world. To aid interested shoppers, signs are placed throughout the store to easily locate these supporting products.
