Welcome! This site is dedicated to those who want to make jewelry using professional pearl and bead stringing techniques. Our teaching products are for people who want to learn the best and most professional methods of making jewelry using pearl and bead stringing. We are not for people who learn one technique, such as crimping, and stop there.
Please explore the site for more information about our products and our Resources and Articles section for valuable jewelry making and jewelry design information.
Below is a short, one minute video showing the types of jewelry you’ll be able to make after taking the Professional Pearl and Bead Stringing courses.
Our instructional products also include a “Working with Wire” DVD demonstrating foundational concepts and techniques for making wire jewelry and findings. The ability to make wire jewelry enhances and extends the manufacturing capability of the professional pearl and bead stringer who is often asked to make companion pieces for strung jewelry. This DVD is available for sale or as a bonus for purchases of the complete Professional Pearl and Bead Stringing suite of DVDs. See below for details. Here is a one minute video providing an overview of what you’ll learn in the “Working with Wire” DVD.

Articles and Resources
Technique is obviously foundational, but the professional pearl and bead stringer typically plays the role of counselor with clients.
Clients want to know how to store jewelry, clean jewelry and take care of jewelry. Clients also will ask questions about gemstones, pearls, designers, trends in the industry, fair trade issues and many more. The Articles and Resources section of the website is dedicated to these questions and many more including selling tips, approaching galleries and others. Not every article will be relevant for your niche, and we don’t want to suggest they are, but they should serve as a rich resource and reference and we hope you will find them valuable.
