Question: Length of Strands for a Four Strand Necklace

My new project is a four strand necklace with four strand clasp (see picture).


According to the bead sizes the length appears to be approximately 16 inches without the clasp.

To achieve the look in the picture where the strands do not appear to be individually separated, what should the length of the each of the four strands be?

Hi Olivia, thanks so much for your question!

I just wanted to clarify- If I understand correctly I think you want the strand to look like they are a necklace rather than a collar right?

If that is the case, my suggestion would be to use bead cone rather than use a fours strand clasp, and make the strands the same length.

I found a great multistrand tutorial that shows exactly how to use a bead cone to hide the mechanics.

It's in a pdf form, by Laura Bracken. Here's the link: Multi-Strand.pdf
