Fake Pearls



Okay, what gives, why are we selling fake pearls on The Pearl Girls website? Y’all know, we are all about real, genuine pearls!

Well, in teaching our staff and fans how to knot genuine cultured pearls, we have learned that it is easier to start with fake pearls. Why? Well, the holes are a lot smoother. So, your thread easily slides through the holes. The holes are also a lot bigger! This is beneficial for two reasons. First, you are less likely to break your thread! Next, it is physically easier to thread the pearls and easier to knot the larger thread, too! Oh that thin thread can tangle! Getting started on the thick thread is easier. These go great with a size 8 pearl knotting silk.

So, fake pearls… we only sell these to train with! Buy a strand for knotting today! Once you get the hang of pearl knotting, then gradually work your way up to genuine pearls!

These pearls are included in our Learn to Knot Pearls take-home kit! Check out a pearl knotting video on YouTube!
