About This Workshop

Traditional knotting is still the best way to string pearls - or any precious vintage beads - for necklaces, bracelets, etc. Pearls are knotted for two reasons. One is for safety so that if you accidentally break the string, the pearls don't scatter everywhere. The second is to preserve the pearls themselves so that they don't rub together and damage each other.

In this class, you'll learn to knot your own freshwater pearl necklace, and attach clasps. Once you know the techniques, you can restore, redesign and up-cycle heirlooms and vintage finds, or buy the exact type of new pearls to create your perfect pearl string.

Guest Tutor: Claudine McPherson has been threading pearls for 25 years and currently does all the stringing and repairs for Ashburton Jewellery in High Street, Ashburton. Claudine's pearl jewellery is ever-popular in Opendrawer's shop.

Date: Saturday 28 Sep 2019, 1-4 pm

Cost: $80 (plus materials fee)

Materials fee (paid directly to Claudine on the day): $25, includes freshwater pearls, thread, 925 Sterling Silver clasps, jump rings & other findings required.
