HOW TO KNOT AND STRING YOUR OWN PEARL BRACELET
I am now offering slightly shorter classes, three and a half hours with a short break for lunch.
YOU WILL LEARN
How to string and knot a pearl bracelet. Covering the beginning, middle section and how to finish.
I will teach you the techniques and tips used in the art of knotting pearls, as well as the different tools and threads you will need to use for the different types of beads. Where to buy materials and tools and the best bead suppliers. Everything you may need to improve and perfect your skills in bead threading and knotting.
Suitable for students with some experience or jewellers who wish to learn stringing to add to their existing jewellery making skills.
This is essentially aimed at how to knot and string pearls but can be used for other beads including semi precious stone beads.
Notes and info will be provided but please feel free to make your own notes.
Please bring your own pearls or beads, maybe you have a pieces you can upcycle and restring or alternatively I can provide a selection of pearls for you to choose from. Please let me know beforehand if you would like me to provide pearls at cost.
Basic threads and findings are provided. if you have your own Bead Board and any tools (pliers) you like to use please bring along.

We had a lovely day at Vicky's east London workshop where we made beautiful knotted pearl necklaces under the careful tutoring of Vicky with a tasty lunch also made by Vicky . We highly recommend her workshops.
