Earrings I made at Bead It on Sherbrooke street
Charmed by Drew Barrymore’s bohemian style and her earrings in particular from the movie He’s Just That Into You, I tried to source the jewelry designer with no luck. I decided to go ahead and just make some myself.

I headed straight to Bead It on Sherbrooke street which I have passed for years and never gone in even though I was filled with curiosity and fun memories from my first jewelry making experience years ago. I was pleasantly surprised by their lovely selection of beads and precious stones. I selected enough stones for two sets of earrings and set-up an hour-long class with Jessica on the following Saturday.
My class took place at the shop over a Cavalero latte (yum). Jessica and I laughed as she showed me how to cut and twist the wire to make the best loops to attach the stones. After a few tries I got the knack of it and was overjoyed with my creations and the possibilities that exist once you get started. I will definately go back to make holiday gifts, and next time I want to explore necklace making.
They are really welcoming at the shop and the total cost for the stones (from Brazil), wire, and the class was only about 75$ which I consider very reasonable. I hope you try it! Or at least get to that creative project you have been putting off.
