------------------------------------------------
Stringing Method
There are various ways to string pearls and beads. We usually use the traditional method of hand-knotting with silk thread. They are knotted between each beads so that the strand has a beautiful drape, the beads do not rub against each other, and if it ever were to break you would have only one or two pieces fall off the strand.  Silk thread gives a nice flow of strand along your neck line.    
 
CLASP ATTACHMENT 
One of the weak point of any bracelets or necklaces is where the clasp attaches to the strand. When metal touches the thread, it weakens it and eventually cut the thread. To avoid this happening, we cover the thread with the tiny coiled wire, called French wire. This prevents the metal of the clasp from rubbing against the thread and makes the attachment much more durable.  

We carry several clasps in stock. sterling silver, gold filled, 14k yellow gold and white gold, if you would like an replacement.

Length
Restringing give the strands the different length. The old ones are often loose on thread. By getting restrung tightly, it shortens the strands.
   
Shortening your necklaces offers the opportunity to either get rid of flawed pearls or to make matching drop earrings or a pendant.  

 
CLEANING 
General pearl/bead cleaning is included to restringing jobs. There is no extra charge for this. There is also extra cleaning service available with additional charge.
 

TIME 
Our usual turn out is 3 business days. The first day to receive the package and examine the pieces. The second day to work on them. And the third day to ship them out. It could take longer at Christmas time.
