Class-SilkKnotGemstones

This next step in Silk Knotting.  You will learn how to knot gemstones with a variation on the starting + finishing process that lends to a  higher-end professional look. 

We also refer to this technique as "knotting without clamshells"  

 

This in an intermediate knotting class – please have already taken the "silk knotting with pearls" class. Expect to have time to knot a single strand necklace – 16" – 24" long.  (The longer necklace in the photo takes much longer than the 2hour class allows.) 

Students to bring or buy materials:  see below:

1-2 strands of beads (6 – 10mm size suggested)

1 card of silk (size that fits your beads)

2 Metal Roundell/End beads – appropriate to size of beads

2 closed jumprings  + s-hook or lobster clasp – appropriate to size of beads

OR

1 clasp – any style you prefer (loops on clasp MUST be soldered closed)
