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 $25, you get $50 worth of beads, crystals, classes, and tools at WorldBeads. Choose between the following locations: Virginia Street or Broadway Street.
At WorldBeads, thousands of beads, tools, and jewelry-making accouterments join forces to custom craft a glamorous array of accessories. Epidermis adornments begin their journey as handfuls of 6 mm Czech fire-polished emeralds ($0.25 each) rolling along a 12"x19" jewelry design board ($9.95). Accrue style points with the triumphant placement of a Swarovski 16 mm cosmic bead ($7.85), or align iridescent orbs onto clear 49-strand Flexalon wire ($17.15 for a 30 ft. spool) to cultivate a unified necklace. With a 17-compartment bead organizer ($7.95), armband artists can call upon 6 mm blue Japanese miracle beads ($0.70 each) to use in a bracelet or to plant as seeds that will one day grow into a mighty anklet-bearing oak.
The gem-impassioned staff of WorldBeads supports curious artisans with aesthetic pointers to guide them along on their epic beaded adventures, as well as jewelry-making classes for hands-on experience.
