Not interested in the same old (read: lame) bachelorette party options? Try a jewelry-design class instead. New York-based image stylist Dina Rudman offers such a class through the jewelry design division of her company Modnitsa Atelier, located in midtown Manhattan. During a one-hour, hands-on workshop, an expert instructor will give a brief overview of color theory, examine elements of design, and guide students through the proper techniques for constructing their own pieces. Then you and your gals will create your own stylish custom earrings or necklaces using semi-precious stones. Perhaps you can treat your gals as a bridesmaid gift—and maybe they can even design their own jewelry for the wedding day. One hour classes cost $85.
