Pearl Knotting

Pearls

Knotting is a traditional technique for stringing pearls and gemstones. Pearls are made from calcium carbonateĀ in minute crystalline form, they are a relatively soft material (2.5 – 4.5 on the Mohs scale).

Pearls and gemstones are traditionally knotted to prevent the beads from rubbing against each other. The knots are also really handy in saving your beads should a strand accidentally break. Today knotting is used in lots of different types of jewellery, now you can learn this wonderful technique and use it in your work too!
