Pearl & Bead Threading

Learn to knot pearls like a professional! Quality pearl necklaces require quality pearl threading. This includes tying the knots in between each pearl to prevent loss of pearls if the necklace snaps, as well as preventing the pearls from rubbing together and abrading which is of particular help for the longevity of cultured pearls. This course demonstrates the type of materials that can be used for pearl threading, the number of strands for threading and a method for tying tight knots between the pearls. The course also includes some additional information about threading of other gems.
