Learn timeless jewellery techniques with specialist jeweller and silversmith Danielle.

Learn how to professionally knot pearls, gemstones or beads, and finish with a French wire clasp to repair, restring and recreate your heirloom jewellery.

Have you got a string of pearls, gemstones, crystals or beads from your Grandma, mother, great aunts or any sentimental beads to be re-strung? Learn durable techniques that will stand the test of time and give your pieces a new life. Recycle any strand of beads to recreate a wearable piece using silk thread, for a professional finish that you will be proud of.
