Q.
I just made a necklace that is one sided links put together. One side keeps twisting so that the back of the links are showing. Any solutions for me to try?

A.
One or single-sided links lay flat against the neckline or wrist. The balance of the piece can flip if it's other components, including clasp, are rounded and not so flat. To avoid this flipping or twisting, either use similarly shaped components or design with two or double-sided links. Adding a large jumpring facing the opposite direction between the two links would work as well.

Either of these options should solve the problem.
