Never fear losing all your pearls or beads to a broken string again. Spend a relaxing day learning the techniques of pearl knotting, the process of fashioning small knots between each pearl or bead. Participants will choose pearls in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes to create their own unique design. Each participant will leave with a custom pearl necklace or a double stranded bracelet at the end of the day.

MATERIAL COST: $25.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop.
