Jewellery Restringing Services
Article from ‘The Jeweller’ November 2010:
Things might have turned out very differently for bead-stringer Janie Stansbury. “I was actually taught bead-stringing on a return-to-work programme. They were offering all sorts of options — including taxi driving — but for me it was toss up between painting on ceramics and the beads. I chose the latter and have never looked back,” she says.
Janie learnt her trade in Hatton Garden working for a number of businesses before becoming manageress for a now defunct pearl business. “Janie's Stringing”, which is based in Tenterden in Kent, was the outcome of her redundancy. She works for retailers around the UK Restringing broken necklaces and also creating new pieces for designers who send her the components she needs to create them on their behalf. She works with both precious and non-precious materials and especially pearls but jokes that she can string literally anything so long as it has a hole!
Over the years Janie has built up her own stock of beads and clasps and can frequently supply matches for hard-to-find components. For further information call her on 01580 761039.
