Make sure to check that you’re purchasing the proper type for the project you’re making. Find out how the pearl was colored before you buy it, especially if you plan on using it for a piece of jewelry like a bracelet, which will suffer lots of wear and tear. Most pearls are naturally colored, but some pearls are surfacedyed and the dye will rub off if they’re worn frequently. Round-nose pliers Wire cutters Ruler Techniques Wrapped loop Knotting Instructions 1. Slide a pearl onto a head pin. Make a wrapped loop to secure the pearl, but instead of trimming the wire end, keep wrapping the wire around the top of the pearl to make a small, spiral bead cap (figure 1).

Popular pearl shapes include coins, sticks, flat teardrops, squares, and diamonds. Other types of pearl shapes include keishi, which have no nucleus—they are simply the extra nacre that may be produced by a mollusk. Mabe pearls, also know as blister pearls, are produced by inserting a half bead into a specific place in the mollusk’s shell. The mollusk produces a hollow pearl that is removed, filled with glue, and then backed with mother-of-pearl to create a pearl cabochon. Versatile to wear, this easy-to-make piece can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, lariat, or belt.

To make this type of link, follow the technique described…but don’t place a stone on the wire after you’ve completed the first loop. Make the second loop, and then wrap the wire end around the twist you just completed to secure the piece. If you need to join links, you can build the next one by attaching it to the link you’ve just created. If you’re attaching the link to a chain, be sure to place the chain link on the loop before closing it. You’ll be using a similar technique to attach brioletteshaped stones, as well as pearls and stones with holes drilled at the top instead of through the center.
