Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for

Question:

I would like to use pearls to make a leather knotted necklace. Where would I find pearls that I could use?

-Judy in Monroe, Louisiana

Answer:

Hi Judy, we carry a nice selection of large hole freshwater pearls here on Wire-Sculpture. With the exception of the round black ones, they will all fit on wire up to and including 18-gauge round! (That means up to 19-gauge square.) Buying them is a lot easier than reaming them!

If you already have some pearls that you want to use, check out this video: How to Ream a Pearl.
