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.
