Pearl Knotting

Real pearls are usually knotted when being used to make pearl necklaces. By securing each pearl with a knot, the pearls will not rub against eachother and as a result do not become damaged. Also, if the thread breaks, the pearls will not fall off as they are individually securely fastened with a knot! By and large, it is simply just a stunning technique when making jewellery with pearls.

Knotting Pearls on Silk Thread

Real pearls should realistically be knotted onto a fine, good quality thread. Therefore, pearl knotting is normally done with silk thread. This thread may be a tad more expensive than others, but this is due to its beauty and quality. Silk thread is available in different thicknesses. The thread thickness that you should use depends of course on the size of the bead. The silk thread must be able to fit through the hole in the bead, but it shouldn’t be too thin. If the silk thread is too thin, the pearls will slide over the knots which is the last thing you want! It would also be a shame if halfway knotting the beads you find out that your thread is too short – so always make sure that your thread is long enough before hand!

How to knot pearls

Make a knot between every pearl. Knot each pearl pretty tight against both neighboring beads. These knots create a little space between the pearls. In the video you’ll find a quick an easy explanation as to how to make your own knotted pearl necklace. Fancy giving it a go? If you place an order you can also order a free basting thread sample with a needle. Click here.

Knotting pearls not your thing?

Do you find it too difficult or time consuming to knot pearls yourself? Then Ilona’s Silver & Gemstones has the perfect solution for you. The picture below shows a beautiful pearl necklace. It seems knotted, but its not! There are tiny silicone pads between the pearls instead of knots. These pads give a nice, smooth effect. Moreover, these silicone pads also ensure that your pearls are protected from damage. 

For the finest finish on your pearl necklace, we suggest you use a real pearl closure. 

In case you’re curious about these pearls (which would be totally understandable), take a look in the shop: just click here.
