Pearls are timeless. They’ve never really gone out of style, but lately they are popping up in the fashion mainstream in a fresh and modern way.
Perhaps you’ve already dreamed up interesting ways to incorporate these beauties into your work? If you’d like to expand your design options, consider mounting pearls from findings, rather than the traditional method of stringing them on knotted silk cord. In the following video, Mark Nelson demonstrates a simple method for mounting pearls using pearl caps and epoxy. With this method, you can use components to create a wide range of jewelry designs from earrings to bracelets to necklaces.
