I do fresh water, gemstone beads & glass beads Tahitian and larger Akoya as well.
Unknotted necklaces are approximately half the prices and may be threaded on either silk or the modern materials such as nylon, or nylon coated steel flex wire.
Restringing Larger (12mm plus) Manufactured Pearls or Gemstones
I can also do Majorica - Majorca - Mallorca and other synthetic pearls.
If pearls need to be drilled this will be need to be assessed on each job, as the quality of the pearl dictates the price.
For double or triple strands I will give you a quote based on the amount of pearls and whether you want nested or unnested or fully nested . I will need to estimate the price for these, but to give you an idea use the above prices and multiply by two or three.
All items are treated with the greatest of respect, a pearl necklace is valuable, and a necklace with memories is priceless.
