Candy necklaces and ring pops look great, but many prefer the nuanced mouth feel and clean finish of precious gems and metals.

Today’s Groupon is valid at the Bank Street and William Street locations.

The Sassy Bead Co. dazzles shoppers with a host of baublecentric inventory ranging from seed beads to Swarovski crystals, along with hands-on classes for students of all abilities. A glittering assortment of ready-made jewellery ($14.95+) catches both the light and the attention of passing barracuda, and all manner of beads ($0.05 each+), such as freshwater pearls and semiprecious stones, can congregate together to form hundreds of chic pieces. Crafters hone stringing skills in classes or workshops held on select afternoons and evenings, such as a Beading Basics class that elucidates the essentials of orb handling in a relaxed, interactive environment. Sequester bashful shoulders under the vibrant colours and patterns of a pashmina scarf ($20 for one; $35 for two), or scoop up a handbag ($21.95+) that dutifully holds personal effects, enabling owners to keep their hands free and ready for impromptu games of pat-a-cake.

The Sassy Bead Company

Greg Best and Natalie Szabo founded The Sassy Bead Company in the early ’90s, creating a sanctuary for more than 3,000 types of beads from seed beads to semiprecious stones. They also fill their shelves with rarer bead types, including Swarovski crystals, Japanese delicas, and freshwater pearls, available individually or as part of finished bracelets, necklaces, or toupees. Along with beads for purchase, the duo accepts beaded jewellery for repair, and crafts custom pieces for special occasions such as weddings and proms.
