Brooklyn Beads Boutique

Do something a little more meaningful this holiday by making a gift instead of just giving one. This weekend my good friend asked me to join her in making Christmas gifts. We decided to go to the Brooklyn Beads Boutique located in Cobble Hill. The boutique has a variety of different beads to choose from in various colors. Brooklyn beads not only has beads but charms and semi-precious stones can also be used to make necklaces and bracelets. Once you have chosen your beads, you sit at a table and make your jewelry. While stringing your beads you can view the trendy neighborhood of Brooklyn through the boutique’s panoramic windows while listening to soft jazz. This jewelry making experience was very therapeutic and relaxing. Brooklyn Beads offers jewelry making classes on necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets.
