Shop handcrafted Artisan Jewelry and Luxury Knits by Janet Bocciardi!

Having jewelry in your dresser drawers that you no longer wear, because the silk broke on your strand of pearls or a clasp broke on an inherited necklace is a shame.  There are a thousand other reasons why you're not wearing it, including:  out of style, wrong length, broken link, afraid it's going to break, etc.

Pastel Umba Sapphire Necklace

 

I can fix that!

Pearl-knotting: Pearls are traditionally knotted individually to protect the pearl's nacre. The light weight nature of pearls and small semi-precious stones also have a nice drape when you on your knees to find all the pearls as they fall when the silk wears through, too! Pearls should be re-strung periodically to reduce chance of breakage while wearing them. I use double thread unless design warrants single thread.

Re-stringing: for single or multiple strands of beads of any sort. In most cases I use micro-wire technology: micro woven stainless steel wires braided together and then nylon coated. It is hypoallergenic and can be worn in and out of salt and fresh water. (Although I recommend always removing jewelry before swimming or bathing!) It is very strong and flexible. A review of the piece will determine appropriate stringing material. No redesign work is done for this service.

(Please contact me with other repairs as well.  If I do not feel I can do a quality job for you I will let you know.)
