Rings were made to mark important occasions, bring a little extra to outfits, and camouflage among doughnuts . Get crafty with today’s Groupon: £21 for a three hour bead jewellery making course with The Bead Company.
Fulfilling the dreams of jewellers and magpies alike , The Bead Company is a bead shop boasting a stately showroom that sparkles with gems, silver chains, glass beads, and a touch of Swarovski charm. The glimmering store is complete with beading tables and complimentary cuppas from the friendly staff to fuel creativity. With an online store and a glistening string of jewellery making courses, the beading business also plays host to imaginative parties and offers commissioned jewellery services for trinkets off the chain.
Stepping into the West End store, budding beaders can learn tricks and techniques and create a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a pretty hair comb to take home and pop proudly in the jewellery box. The expert jeweller will provide all the materials necessary as well as trinkety know-how, allowing visitors to try their hand at beading. Tea, coffee, and cake will help to spark creativity, and natural jewellers can indulge a 20% discount on any materials bought on the day, for home-based creative sessions.
While The Bead Company’s classes have not been widely reviewed, one participant enjoyed their time learning the craft.
The instruction class I took was fun and enabled even a beginner like me to create lovely individual necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
