    Hi Bernadette....restringing the whole piece. I have never considered just repairing one section of a necklace, just figured if there’s one break in a thread it won’t be long until there’s another.

    Thanks Pattye! Tracking the hours but also taking the time to teach myself layouts and thread placement!

          Did she have the missing little beads? Are there 3 colors? Good luck, thank you for updating us.

            Would the client be ok with swapping the clasp? That necklace deserves a better clasp and it doesn't need to be expensive.

              Lisa C the client had 7 of the 9 missing pearls, so I replaced two of them.
              Lady_Disdain I did ask if she wanted a new clasp but was happy with the original.

              Pretty happy with the result! But won’t be chasing down work like this regularly! Thanks for all the help along the way you lovely people
