Repairs

We offer a professional and comprehensive re-stringing
and repair service for all forms of beaded jewellery.

REPAIRS3
 
Whether it is a complete restring of a strand of beads, shortening a necklace or adding a magnetic clasp, we can help. We have been carrying out repairs for over 14 years and do a great job.

Price depends on length and bead size. All pearls are strung traditionally on pearl silk, knotted on a single strand and finished with french wire (gimp). Most other repairs are done on flexible Softflex wire finished with crimp beads and crimp covers.
