Event description

It takes time, patience and precision to string pearls on silk, but it is worth it. A carefully placed knot between each pearl not only protects the pearls, preventing them from rubbing together, it also creates beautiful movement and ensures that, if your strand breaks, only a single pearl will be lost.

In this alternative pearl stringing workshop participants will be taught to use the traditional art of silk knotting to create an individual interpretation of a pearl bracelet. Whether you are a jeweller looking to add to your skill set or a complete beginner searching for a way to breathe new life into ‘granny’s pearls’, over the afternoon you will gain the skills and confidence to apply this time honoured process to your own projects and designs.
