Amid Twisted Jeweler’s menagerie of glimmering beads, crystals, and gemstones, crafters stock up for at-home projects and participate in jewelry-making classes. A rotating selection of classes demystifies the art of crafting hoop earrings, Y-shaped crystal necklaces, and beaded strands. Equipped with supplies included with the cost of the class, students are given free rein to string, wire wrap, or hogtie the shop’s kaleidoscopic stock of beads, which includes amethyst charms ($0.25+), gold-plated beads ($0.25+), and sapphire Swarovski bicones ($3.50 for 32 pieces).
The designers at Twisted Jeweler aren’t afraid of the competition—in fact, they'll train competitors themselves. While crafting pearl bracelets and 14-karat-gold-filled Daddy Hug Me rings, which bear the birthstones of both a child and a parent deployed in the military, they'll also teach crafters of all ages to string beads and sculpt with wire. Once they've learned the basics, fledgling artisans can sort through sparkling rows of loose Swarovski crystals and jewelry-making supplies such as clasps and head pins. Supplementing a sparkling array of handmade pendants and earrings, the jewelers take on custom design projects to create pieces not found in department stores or the jewelry box of one's elementary-school rival.
