Not in the Philly area per se (in central jersey!) but I make beaded jewelry as a hobby.  I do not string pearl necklaces but I believe that you have to have some sort of protection where the clasp meets the string (i.e. french wire or a bead tip) so the string is not rubbing directly against the clasp and this prevent breakage.  Does your necklace have this?  I would recommend going on http://beadwork.about.com/ (the beadwork forum) and  http://jewelrymaking.about.com/ (the jewelry making forum) at the about.com website and posting your question there.  And maybe you can post a pic so people will know what/where the damage occured.  I’m hopeful someone (or several someones!) will have very good advice to give you.  If you have a bead store in your area, you could take it in to get restrung or ask if they know someone who can re-sting it.  If you’re in the Philly area you should have a bead shop – google it.  I hope this helps!
