Powerpro Vs. Silk
Ok so I have seen some questions on the different threads so I thought I would put this here for newbies that might need just one place to find answers Smile

So what are the pros and cons of powerpro vs silk when stringing pearls? Can Catherine string pearls that she has for sale on powerpro if they are listed on silk?

RE: Powerpro Vs. Silk
Yes, she can restring for you.

Silk cannot get wet. And is less durable, you will need to restring with silk. If you wear them daily, you will need to restring every 6 months to a year. Silk also does not do well in humid climates.

Powerpro can get wet, and will last longer. It does not come in the pretty colours, but I think for everyday pearls, it is a better choice. It can take a bit more.

I believe it comes in four colors, two of wouldn't be used for pearls. It's basically fishing line. I'm a power pro all the way kind of gal.

I know another is green, but I am not a green kinda girl. I have no clue what the other colours are.

That makes sense. I would not want those for pearls either, unless I had some black Tahitians, lol.

RE: Powerpro Vs. Silk
To ressurect this old thread. There are other alternatives. I use synthetic silk for big ripples and big smooths, plus for Tahitians and South Sea Pearls. I drapes well and can get wet - and won't stretch.
I think Pattye also carries a huge range of Beader's Secret threads. Another alternative.
