The basic technique for stringing pearls and rounds between tightly cinched knots hasn’t changed much over the years. Chances are your favorite beading site has a basic tutorial - the FusionBeads.com learning center offers a great step-by-step on how to do basic pearl knotting.
Of course you can mix and match different bead sizes and colors for a unique look,
like in Katie’s Continuous Style Necklace project from Artbeads.com
The natural elegance of freshwater pearls really stands out when they are spaced just-so,
like in the Lady Emma's Pearls necklace project from Beadholique.
Changing up the stringing material can create a whole new look,
like in the Knot Your Mother’s Pearls Lariat project from Auntie’s Beads.
Have you used the pearl knotting technique in your designs? What kinds of beads do you like to use it with?
