We are SO excited to be offering in-person classes once again! We are limiting each class to up to 4 individuals at a time. Please sign up ahead of the Sunday of the class you intend to take. We require a properly worn mask (covering your mouth and nose) to be worn for the entire duration of the class and your time in the shop, regardless of your vaccination status. Have any questions / comments / concerns about Covid conscious procedure before you sign up? Feel free to send us an email at info@beadsofparadisenyc.com.  

**the ending of the class is somewhat open (usually getting out between 2:30 - 3:30-ish, depending on the speed at which everybody works. If you need to be out at a specific time, please let the instructor know at the beginning of the class, and we'll do our best.)

Interested in making your own jewelry and the ability to repair and re-work your own? Our Findings Crash Course is the perfect place to get started. In a small and relaxed group setting, our lauded technique class will impart the skills you need to string jewelry on two popular materials, knot between beads for security and aesthetic purposes and basic wire-wrapping techniques. We'll talk about approaches to design and materials and get comfortable using our hands in working with small materials and tools. From the skills you learn in class, you will come away with the know-how you need to get started on designing and repairing your own: tackle that bag of broken jewelry, re-create that overpriced piece from a magazine or pull design ideas straight from your imagination. Let us help you get started!

All you need to bring is yourself and any glasses that you may need when working with small materials - we provide everything else! 

Please read on to for class specifics and FAQs.

  • all the different findings and tools
  • stringing and ending bracelets and necklaces using Soft Flex wire and crimping

Please register for your preferred date ahead of time, as the class has limited seating and we prepare the supplies in advance according to sign-ups. If you cannot make the date you scheduled, you can call or email and reschedule at no charge.

Class is for ages 12 and older (classes are mostly made up of adults), as sustained attention and patience is needed for this two+ hour class, in addition to fine motor skills. If you are looking to sign up with a pre-teen, it's not a bad idea to call first to make sure you sign up for a class on a week that isn't too full.

We recommend that you arrive around 10 minutes prior to the start of class and bring along any glasses or visual aids that you may need in order to work with the small materials used in class. 

Kindly include the participants names in the "notes" section when signing up online so that we know who to expect. Thank you! 

 *So as to not compromise your or your classmates learning experience, if you are 15 or more minutes late, you will need to reschedule (at no charge).
