About the Kit...

A Pearl Knotted necklace is the height of elegance.

Your method of construction should be equal to the task.

You begin with lustrous, romantic pearls. You string these on silk bead cord, using a methodology to knot between each one. This methodology should marry the structural properties of knots and the exact spacing of parts, with the inherent characteristics of the silk.

A Pearl Knotted necklace should be architectural perfection.

And timeless.

Hand-Knotting. We put knots between pearls for many reasons. Some reasons have to do with visual aethetics; others, with structural concerns.

There are many, many variations on Pearl Knotting techniques.

The major difference between traditional and non-traditional methods is in how the knots are made. Traditional methods use tools, like tri-cord knotters, tweezers or awls, to guide the knots into place. Non-traditional methods do not.

Over the years, I have found it very difficult for most students to get good knots and good hand-knotted construction using tools. It is difficult to maneuver the knot close to the bead, and it is difficult to keep sufficient tension on your bead cords, as you make the knot. This is why I prefer the non-traditional method, which students master much more readily.

This 16 1/2" necklace is made up of Swarovski faux pearls, and strung on silk.
