Beading jewelry is a creative outlet that yields a sustainable product, unlike white-board portraiture or knitting paper towels. Make sparkling memories with today's Groupon: for $19, you get two introduction to jewelry classes at World of Beads, valid at both locations, on Erie Avenue and on Devitt Drive (up to a $38 value). Customers will need to purchase their own kits for the Introduction to Beaded Jewelry class; kits include tools and supplies, and range from $7 to $42 depending on the beads chosen. Consult the class schedule before calling to make a reservation.
World of Beads' beading whizzes instruct small classes of beginner bauble makers in beading and wire technique. Assemble a group of friends, neighbors, or estranged high school counselors for an Introduction to Beaded Jewelry class, where students delve into the topics of color theory and design before selecting worthy spheres and appropriate cording to create two in-class projects. Beading pupils construct a strung bracelet and dip earlobes into the refreshing world of earring creation, then take their sparkling treasures home to stow in a favorite jewelry box or cryogenic chamber. During the Wrapped Up In Wire, instructors illuminate the art of wrapping wire and headpins to help students craft earrings and necklaces. After classes end, stick around for a free in-store jewelry demo or entertain eyes with World of Beads' colossal collection of gems and Swarovski crystals.
Though World of Beads sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
