The necklace is literally falling apart, though, with many breaks, missing beads, plus most of the back section as well as the clasp is missing, and the wood spacer bars are all broken. The outer strand with small bells is 90% missing.

If it were in better condition I'd agree that repairing just the broken stringing would be appropriate. But I decided to re-string the entire piece with new spacer bars (which I will match as closely as possible to the originals, using dyed bamboo strips), while keeping the original patterns, and then adding to the ends so I can also add a clasp.

It won't be the original any more, but I will be preserving the beads and the pattern of the original piece.

Sorry if that disappoints anyone!
