Traditional Pearl Jewellery Knotting
High-end, quality, vintage pearls are typically individually knotted onto silk to create a strong, flowing piece of jewellery and to protect the pearls. Your skilled instructor, Sarah Smith-Stewart, will impart her knowledge about this timeless technique with freshwater pearls, genuine silk, tweezers and some patience! Create an instant heirloom in one afternoon! Choose from a selection of freshwater pearls, included in the materials fee. Tools and magnifiers (if needed) are provided for the class.
