Topics: Design, Shortening a Necklace

Q.
Is there a way to make a multi-strand necklace shorter without pulling it apart?

A.
Twisting the necklace and clasping it so it stays twisted is a quick way to change the length of a design without having to undo it. Each twist shortens the necklace so you can keep twisting until your desired length is reached.

Securing the twisted strand(s) with a twister clasp, designed for this very technique, will hold the length you like.
