It usually means they got too much sunlight or they got too much sun while it was too hot.

Personally, my SOP get lots bright direct light through a glass Southern window for 4-5 hours a day, but I acclimated them slowly to that environment. During cooler weather they get direct light when I open up the window but I don't do that during the summer when it's hot or they scorch.

I've been experimenting with using klennex tissues to filter bright direct on plants to acclimate them... so far it's been very successful... if you want to keep your String of Pearls and it's current location maybe try placing a tissue over it and slowly acclimating it to more hours of sunlight? 😊 πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸ’™Hope that helps!
String of Pearls prefer indirect light. You may be scorching them with direct light. Have you tried moving them to lower light exposure?
P.S. here's a pic of my very high tech tissue method for sunlight acclimation πŸ˜‚
