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!
