Picture it. You’re at a swanky event, dressed in your finest. Your dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller (hey, its Halloween season) and the next thing you know, your pearl necklace breaks!
The pearls spill all across the dance floor. Party goers begin slip sliding and not to the music. You rush to pick up every errant pearl but alas, you find most of them, but not all.
Later that night, you review the wreckage of your pearl necklace and ask yourself, “What went wrong?”
Knotting. Or the lack thereof. That’s what went wrong.
What Exactly Is Pearl Knotting?
Pearl knotting is the act of tying knots between each pearl strung in a necklace or bracelet. These fine little knots make sure you only lose one pearl as opposed to an entire set.
Now let’s go back to the swanky Halloween affair. You feel the drop of one pearl to the ground. You pick it up, put the necklace in your purse for later repair, and finish the Michael Jackson tune like a pro. [Insert wild applause.]
