Pearl knotting is a beading technique in which you use silk or nylon thread and tie knots between the beads. Originally it was used for pearl necklaces so that when they broke, you would only lose one pearl. Now it is used with all types of beads for elegance and style.
What you will learn:
• String necklace on silk or nylon string
• Attach clasps and bead tips
• Make knots between beads
• Make design decisions
