  • How to make a multi-strand bead necklace. Layered Necklace Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut your 5mm curb chain into two 5 inch pieces.

    Take one piece of your 5-inch curb chain, and using your flat nose pliers, attach one end to your lobster clasp and the other end to your ¾ inch hoop. Repeat the process for the second piece of 5-inch curb chain, attaching to the second ¾ inch hoop and the tab end of your lobster clasp. At the end of this step, your pieces should look like the picture on the left.
