After so many years of teaching, repairing, manufacturing, selling and buying pearl jewelry, I feel that there is a lot of knowledge that I'd like to share.
As I'm not getting younger, I would like to make sure that there is some type of record about all the secrets in fine pearl jewelry repair, and hopefully you can pick up advice or inspiration from it.
The lessons wil start right at the beginner level and work up all the way to what you need to know to be a successful pearl stringer.
Sounds funny, doesn't it? After all, there is not much to stuffing strings into little holes.
And you're right: it's as easy as pie. However. The difference between making craft jewelry and fine jewelry is huge. Not in cost of material, although that is the common definition, but rather by the attitude with which you string and finish a "fine" pearl necklace.
It takes more effort to do it right, but the result is overwhelmingly different.
So, if you do not intend to put all your pride into these projects, don't bother reading my blogs that contain the instructions. These are for pearl stringing superstars only!
Looking forward to meet you here!
