Complimentary Classes

Classes are a great way for us to make new customers and advance our existing customers skills.   At Beads Inc there is not a charge for attending a class because we think that you should never be charged for learning a new skill.
Open Basics 101:
Our Open Basics Class covers all of the basic necessary techniques to make beautiful beaded jewelry. If you would like to brush up on your skills or you have never beaded before, we can help! Through crimping and wire-wrapping, you will learn the core basics of jewelry making, and you will leave with all the knowledge and power to make beautiful bracelets, necklaces and earrings. We guarantee it!!!

 

Because the following classes are more complex skills, and we want to provide you with outstanding complimentary service, please call to make a reservation.

Silk Knotting:  

Silk knotting is a beautiful, strong and graceful method for stringing freshwater pearls or semiprecious stones.  Using a handy silk knotting tool and Griffin silk cord, you will learn a new skill that has been used by fine jewelers for centuries.  Did you know we carry over 70 styles of Griffin silk cord?

Kumihimo:  
This Japanese word translates to “a coming together of threads”. An exciting, intricate technique that involves braiding colorful threads and incorporating beads to create a design that is uniquely yours. You’ll be amazed by how easy it is to learn and create styles of your own!

Flower Making:  

We suppose you could say this is our signature style! Using a variety of top-drilled beads, Swarovski crystal and Czech glass you will learn to create dimensional, dynamic blossoms to adorn your one-of-a-kind necklaces.

Wire Wrapped Bangles:  

These bracelets have been so popular here at the shop! Learn to make your own “arm party” with a variety of different stones and crystals!
