Pearls and beads. Re-string your pearl and bead necklace

Do you have a favorite string of beads that you just want to wear again? You can restring your beads using fishing line! Fishing line is strong and flexible and you can save your favorite fashion look.

Another tip for when a necklace of beads falls apart use dental floss and restring the necklace and tie in a knot. The dental floss will hold strong.

Best string for pearls? Comments By: Ardith Noble on 2004-09-09
Concerned that you suggest fishing line for pearl re-stringing - may injur pearls? Another site suggests using silk. Need something fine and firm at the same time to go through tiny hole in pearls and yet not damage them. What do jewellers use?
