    Default Pearl Knotting Video

    I was going through photo files of our November trip to Zhuji and found that Mia had actually video taped knotting. I had forgotten about this until today. Anyway, I put it up on Youtube so you can watch it if you like!

    Hi Jeremy,

    Finally got to watch this video. My main computer was at Apple for 2 months and the old laptop I was using inbetween was just too slow for video. Nice clip, seemed I could almost catch some Chinese in the background. Those pearls were gorgeous and enormous. LOL What was the pearl size, if you remember or can judge?

    They knotted the clasp in as the final step, believe it or not.

    If you can hear the chatting in the background you can hear us discussing the strand she is knotting! It is a 17.5mm, non-graduated strand.
