    This looks like a new technique for me…and a beautiful one at that! I love your design tutorials and other beading tips. It’s wonderful, to see the tools in action and to hear the explanations on how and when to use them. As I result I have purchased a few tools I would have never thought I needed! I will always reference the Artbeads site for inspiration and help in finishing a piece. Love the choice, love the beads!

    As many pieces of jewelry as I have made over the years, I have stayed away from multi-strands just because I wasn’t sure I could do this well. But, perhaps it is time that I give it a try. The clasp shown in the pearl necklace picture is really one that I think is beautiful and classy. This is jewelry that one would be proud to wear. TOHO beads are a favorite of mine so winning this multi-strand set would certainly make me a happy beader.

    I don’t often make multi-strand necklaces, but here are a few tips I have learned along the way:
    *A design/layout board really helps, especially one that’s made for multi-strand necklaces.
    *Try different configurations; sometimes your first idea won’t be the best idea.
    *There are multiple ways to finish the necklace — multi-strand clasps, 3-to-1 links (or however many strands), etc. *Experiment to see what you like best.
    *Before crimping, try it on yourself, a friend, or even a mannequin, making sure it hangs properly.
    *Have fun!

    I’m curious as to how you pick your components for your beautiful finished pieces. I imagine you walking through the warehouse looking at bins of all those beautiful beads and findings; placing the chosen pieces on a tray that you hold while your creative juices flow. Oh how I would love to spend a day with you to see how you do decide. While this may not be possible, watching your videos is the next best thing. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us.

    I enjoyed watching this video. Actually, I enjoy all your videos. I’ve learned so much from them. There are so many choices of clasps. The necklaces are absolutely beautiful! I mainly make bracelets but I must try this necklace. You’re both so talented!
    Thank you for sharing.

    For multi-strand jewelry, having a clasp that assists you in the spacing desired makes things much easier, having bead stoppers and a design board are great helps too. Having an idea going in helps me, and having many extra bead/spacer ideas on hand that could go with the colors is nice in case the design ends up going in a different direction.

    I find it helpful to lay out my multi strand necklace design on a bead design board and string it temporarily just to see how the beads fit together. Then, if I like the way it looks I will figure out the proper length of each strand and attach it to a clasp.

    I love using my Czech glass beads and pearls to add color, dimension and texture next to my gemstones whether I am hand knotting or stringing. That they come in so many styles, shapes and sizes makes the possibilities of designing endless. ☺💜

    I just bought a bunch of Czech fire polished beads from your last sale. I’m making a three strand necklace; Two strands of wire wrapped Czech glass and a matching kumihimo strand. I could use a clasp though, and that one is drool worthy!

    I love these clasps. Very elegant. Would love to design some pieces around them. I’m in a rut lately and can’t find inspiration. Maybe??

    Have always wanted to attempt to make a 3-strand necklace but keep putting it off because it seemed like it would be hard to get it to lay straight. But with your explanation and video I just might try one. Thank you for showing us the “how to” videos.
