Amber necklace

We have, in our collection, an amber necklace from Kurin Moss,
County londonderry.There are 301 beads in total which vary in size
from 7 mm to 45 mm in diameter.The beads are strung together on a
piece of fishing line. As the necklace is soon to be placed on
display I would like to take this opportunity to restring it with a
separator between each bead (I'm thinking small sections of silicone
tubing). Any other ideas or references to further reading would be
