Knotting is traditionally used to protect pearls from rubbing against each other and to keep them from flying everywhere if the strand breaks. It also makes for an interesting design element. Knotting can be done with almost any type of bead in a thread that matches the color of your beads, or a contrasting color.
You will need a stringing material, tweezers, and pearls. We recommend that you start with a practice project that won't cost much if you make a mistake. Learn an easy way to begin and finish your strand with a bead tip by visiting our tutorial about how to use a closed-loop bead tip. You can also learn the traditional way of knotting with a clasp by visiting this tutorial.
