If you’re a DIY jewelry enthusiast and live in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, then Bead Monkey is a store you should check out! Begun by married couple Tina and Dave nearly twenty years ago, Bead Monkey has now grown to accommodate two store locations. The store offers free weekend demos each Saturday morning (Sept. 22 will be a Braid & Cones necklace tutorial) as well as various classes on how to make jewelry with their products. In addition to these classes, you can have your birthday or corporate retreat at Bead Monkey and they will also repair your broken jewelry items. A true local and independent business, Bead Monkey does all they can to help their customers out!
