In this workshop, Pat Lucero will teach you how to knot either pearls or stones to create a classic necklace. Anything with a hole in it can be knotted for a unique look. Mix and match pearls with stones to make your own style. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Pat will show you how to connect the ends using clam shell findings and either a pearl clasp or toggle. This is a beautiful way to display a metalsmithed cabochon pendant.
If you own any pearls that maybe need to be restrung, bring them, and you can do them in this workshop.
A $10 Kit Fee is already included in your tuition.
