We offer jewelry repair and help with design or re-construction of your broken jewelry. We do not solder metal, but we can handle most re-stringing or re-knotting and will discuss with you the stringing material and components that are best for your item. Our repair/construction fee is $20 per hour (pro-rated at 15 minute increments), with a minimum charge of $5, plus the cost of materials. We give our best estimate on our repair fee when you bring your piece(s) to us.
We can also help if you want to repair the item yourself. We are happy to show customers how to make a simple loop to make earrings and how to use a crimp bead to finish a necklace using flexible beading wire. We’ll show you on one side, and you can do the other. When we are helping multiple customers, we will divide our attention as fairly as we can. Tools are available for your use in our shop at no charge.
I had my vintage set of pearls restrung by the staff at Bead In Hand and they did a beautiful job in making them look like new. I was very happy with the quality of their work and the staff are more than helpful. – Nancy C.
