Potomac Bead Company - Multiple Locations: $15 for One Bead or Wire Class Plus $10 Toward Materials at Potomac Bead Company (Up to $35 Total Value)

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 $15, you get one beading or wire-working class worth up to $25, plus $10 toward materials at the Potomac Bead Company (up to a $35 total value). This Groupon is valid at locations in Mechanicsburg, Chambersburg, and Hagerstown, Maryland. Materials costs are not included in class prices and vary with each class.

The Potomac Bead Company nurtures gemstone devotees in an environment geared toward creative inspiration. Trained instructors offer a schedule of classes with options appropriate for neophytes as well as more advanced artists. Basic Beading 101 offers an entry into the world of necklace-and-bead stringing, and the Intro to Wire Working class imbues the brain's creative centers with skills in link, coil, and clasp making. Intermediate metal manipulators can combine wire and beads to improve hand-eye coordination with a wire ring. Make utilitarian wristwatches jealous with a glittering diagonal stitch Swarovski bracelet. Other options include seed beading, wire weaving, and hemp-jewelry seminars. Children's beading classes for ages 7–13 offer a sense of creative accomplishment to youngsters who can't yet craft life-size sculptures of muscular Greek children.

Staffers carefully comb Earth's tangled mane to curate a collection of sparkly string-and-wire ornaments, including gemstones ($3.25+ per strand) and glass beads ($1.65+ per strand). Each of Potomac Bead Company's locations presents a plethora of color-coded materials in an expansive showroom, and instructors display samples of their own virtuosic work for inspiration.

The value of this Groupon can also be used toward classes worth more than $25.
