Pearl knotting is the practice of tying knots between the pearls strung in a necklace. Next time you are looking at a pearl strand, take a closer look at the cord. Chances are you will see knots between the pearls on it.
One of the reasons to knot pearls is to keep all of them from falling off the strand if it breaks. If that happens, the knots will ensure that no more than one or two pearls drop on the floor instead of all at once.
In this class, you will learn knot your way through different pearl knotting techniques then you will be able to practice your skills by making a knotted pearl bracelet and matching earrings.
