Project Map

Collection, Project, and Sample by Kate Richbourg

So simple and so versatile! Worn as a necklace or a bracelet, Kate’s lush mix of vintage pearls lends itself perfectly to these endless strands…will you knot or string? In this project, Kate shares a favorite technique: stringing without a clasp. She will show two fool-proof ways to create an endless closure, one using silk thread and one with Soft Flex. As Kate likes to say, “choose your own adventure!” Use Griffin Silk to pearl knot or use Soft Flex with 11/0 spacers to mimic a knotted design.
Act fast, when this curated collection is gone, it’s gone—but you can recreate this design with your own mix of pearls, too!
