This is an example of when there is little point in knotting your pearls.
This was a very graduated string of pearls that has a large size difference between the smallest and largest pearls.
The problem with this is that the holes in the small pearls are often smaller than those in the largest pearls but being unable to use a silk that is larger then the smallest holes, the larger pearls just float over the knots. A waste of time and money.
I’m pretty crafty! I am one of those people who want to learn how to do everything – I watch hours upon hours of YouTube videos, spend ££££ on the complete kit and books. I get all excited, sit down and meh – it’s OK for a week or so, and then it gets relegated to the top shelf for the next big project! (So far, from the top of my head I have needle felting kit, lace making kit, a sewing machine, a 3D doodler, knitting needles galore, every colour of acrylic paint, blank canvases and half a dreamcatcher all tucked away in the been their done that heap!) Currently, aside from the bead restringing which is my job, the only residual craft in operation is crochet! I cannot get enough of it! I hope this one is here to stay!
