Step 3: After securing the first strand, start the second, in this case the middle strand, in the same way. Again, make sure the opposite end of the strand measures up to the corresponding past on the clasp.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the third stand (and all strands depending on how many you chose to do) of the necklace. If you are doing a tiered necklace, having each strand drop a bit lower, make sure the difference between all the strands is approximately the same before finishing.
