Restringing is a very popular pastime for bead enthusiasts, who turn beads they find online, in craft stores, or in rummage sales into unique pieces of jewelry. Many jewelry stores do not take repairs that involve restringing beads and pearls, since many jewelers don't want to take the time to fix strands of beads and pearls when they could be spending the time with other repairs. With some patience and a little practice, restringing skills can be honed and turned into a profitable repair or design business. This course teaches the most widely used techniques for restringing beaded necklaces and bracelets. You will learn what materials are used for each type of bead and why to use them; by the end you will be able to repair and create the most popular styles of beaded jewelry. As a bonus, we have included instructions for engraving on rings and flat surfaces.
