Just in time for St. Patrick's Day

Remember I wrote a few weeks ago about a "commission" I received from my friend Cindy to redo a few of her old necklaces?

Well, here is a collage of my first finished project (click on the image to see it in better detail). I re-knotted Cindy's old green jade and gold bead necklace into 3 bracelets: one for her and one for each of her daughters! And I got it done just in time for St. Patrick's day! My client is very pleased ;)

Cindy's oldest daughter's bday is coming up, so I'll make matching earrings for her as well.

Where do you get the string for knotting? I have no idea where to look at Michael's. TIA

Mariya,
I hope you check in to read my answer ;)

I bought the silk in specialty stores that sell gems and other things to make jewelry. You can also probably order them through on-line catalogs.

Thanks for your advice :)
