Q.
What is the secret to layered chains that don't twist together?
- Jessica
A.
A multi-strand clasp is a great way to keep any layered or multi-strand piece from twisting. By connecting each strand of your design to a separate loop on the clasp, your strands will be kept neat and orderly.

If you are making a really long design, consider adding spacer bars in a symmetrical pattern along the length of the design--the spacer bars will maintain the strands placement in the design as well as keep them from twisting.
