Topics: Finishing Thread Designs

How do I finish a necklace that has been strung with thread? It has four strands and has a pendant suspended from the combined string.

- Brenda
I would recommend finishing the ends with a knot, then hiding the knot inside of a bead tip which you then attach to the clasp directly, stringing on French wire or bullion and finishing with a knot, or by gathering all the strands into a cone and attaching to your clasp with wire and a wrapped loop.
