The Place to Bead’s stockpiles of crystalline beads and precious metals furnish budding jewelers with the materials needed to make all manner of adornments. During Fabulous Earrings classes, students learn how to create two flashy sets of ear-wear or emergency earlobe beacons using the basic and advanced wire-wrapping techniques. Apprentices begin by choosing their favorite colors from a bead selection that includes glimmering Swarovski crystals and pearls. After threading their ornaments along sturdy wires, students finish them off with sterling-silver french hooks. Classes are offered in one-on-one or small-group settings, ensuring plenty of time for each student to pick the teacher’s brains for tricks of the trade and fables from the great beading days of yore. Groupon-holders also receive 15% off purchases the day of their class.

The Place To Bead

Bead boutique sells semiprecious stones, Swarovski crystals, and the country’s largest selection of Venetian beads, while hosting flexibly scheduled crafting workshops in its design studio. Interested jewelry-makers can schedule classes to suit their schedule, and instructors will gladly host even one-on-one sessions to demonstrate introductory beading and show how to crochet necklaces from strands of silver wire. The shop hosts beading parties for kids' birthdays, and parents can craft at grown-up events such as BYOB Ladies' Night and Fiscal New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Customer Reviews

Loved it! The class was well taught, everything was organized and I picked up a lot of good tips on how to do things. The selection of beads, tools and supplies are the best that I have seen anywhere. The experience awakened a past love to make jewelry and I will definitely be a regular and loyal customer. Thanks Kathy!
