Found! Your Last-Minute, Super Adorable Mother's Day Gift

beadsslide
When it comes to Mother's Day, flowers and a card are nice, but what Mom really wants? Some good old-fashioned QT with her offspring. And, because we're here to be your own personal Cyrano, we're slipping you the perfect idea — a mother-daughter jewelry-making workshop at Potomac Bead Company in Old Town. Crafty? Yes. A little quirky? For sure. But, will Mom absolutely love the chance to get creative with you? You can count on it.

Now through the end of May, the shop is offering a two-for-one deal on all jewelry classes, so you can sign up for a session on beading or wire-working (or a workshop dedicated to a specific project, like a chunky statement necklace or charm bracelet) and bring your mom (or mom-in-law, mom-friend, you name it) along for free. Classes range from $18 to $25, not including materials — so, not only is it a bargain, but it's also a perfect opportunity for each of you to snag your ideal statement bauble. Add in brunch and some mimosas, and you've got "Daughter of the Year" in the bag.
When: Now through May 31. See a complete class schedule here.
Where: Potomac Bead Company, 1104 King Street, Alexandria; 703-299-8730.
