Pearl Knotting Tutorial
Knotting pearls onto silk thread protects the pearls rubbing against one another and damaging the delicate pearl nappa on your beads. It also means that if your strand breaks you’ll only lose one or two beads and not the whole strand.
In this tutorial we show you how to knot pearls using Griffin silk bead thead which comes with a needle ready attached. We show you how to use French Wire and how to get your knots to sit close up to your beads using only a pair of knotting tweezers.
Don’t forget your Hypo Cement – it’s essential for starting and finishing off your silk thread.
