Pearl + Bead Re-Stringing: The Fine Jewellery Way
Frustrated with fishing line and hobby cords? Unhappy with clamshells, bead tips, or unsightly cord ends at the clasp? Increase the value of your work by elevating your stringing skills to a new level of technical refinement. This practical, hands-on workshop will show you the fine art of hand-knotting silk cord between beads, and finishing ends the professional way, utilizing French coil. You will construct a hand-knotted necklace and (as time allows) a matching pair of earrings. A material cost of approx. $25/student will be payable at class to cover sterling silver findings (pearl clasp, earring hooks, head pins), silk cord, and French coil. You may bring your own pearls/beads, or may choose from a variety of coloured freshwater pearls and findings available for purchase from the instructor.
Please see your course supply list online. Be sure to come prepared for the first class.
