Jewelry Repair and Finishing
We can repair some broken jewelry, replace clasps, and can finish off an incomplete jewelry project. 

We do not do any soldering, setting of stones, gluing, seed bead weaves, or multi-strand repairs.. Bring in your broken jewelry or project Monday, or Wednesday-Friday so we can take a look at it and tell you what we can do.

Private Lessons
We can offer private lesson for most of the techniques to we offer classes in. Ask an associate for details. 

Personal Shopper
We are in the process of setting up a program to offer personal shopper services. By appointment, an associate can help you select a gift or supplies to get you what you need, with personal attention. We are always here to give you personal attention, however, our staff needs to be available to all customers in the shop. By making an appointment, you get the undivided attention of an associate. If this is of interest to you, please ask an associate.

Beading Parties
We offer beading parties to adults and children age 7 and up. 
Adult Parties
We offer private parties for adults. We can offer an instructor to teach techniques so that participants can make something and leave with it finished. Let us know what you're interested in and we can discuss some options for you.
Kid's Beading Parties
Our kid's beading parties are designed for young people ages 7 and up to create a fun stretchy bracelet, stylish necklace, or a colorful 4-petal bracelet. We can also offer other techniques, depending on your interest and instructor availability. We supply beautiful high-quality glass beads, tools, guidance, samples for inspiration, and encouragement.

Parties can be at Bead Inspirations, or, for an additional travel fee, we can come to your home or another location in Alameda, San Leandro and Oakland. Sorry, no refreshments for in-store parties.
