Pearl Knotting without Tools Workshop @ Spectrum Art Gallery Tickets

Pearl Knotting without Tools Workshop @ Spectrum Art Gallery |  |  |

There is no piece of jewelry more timeless than a strand of hand-knotted pearls. If you’ve always wondered why there are knots between pearls, it’s to prevent pearls from rubbing against each other and to protect against loss if the strand should break. Unfortunately, the process can be frustrating when using tweezers, an awl or a special pearl knotting tool. Now you can put them all away since in this workshop you will learn a foolproof way of hand knotting pearls which can also be applied to other precious beads. For this class, your material fee includes a strand of glass pearls, Griffin silk cord and a clasp. The instructor will provide a Big Eye Needle, scissors and G-S Hypo Cement for use in gallery. Register now as seating is limited.
