Gather everything you need before beginning. To complete this task, gather a pair of needle-nose pliers, a soft cloth, and something elevated so that the necklace hangs down. Once you have gathered all your materials, find a comfortable place to sit or stand where you can work with your necklace without straining your neck or back.

Step Two: Loosen the Knots

It's time to start untying the knots in your necklace once you've gathered all of your materials. Use the needle-nose pliers to pull apart any knots that you see gently.

If your necklace has a clasp, it is time to unclasp it. With this method, you'll have more space to work with the necklace, and it will be simpler to untangle. Once the clasp is undone, gently pull the necklace apart, so you have two ends to work with.

Step Four: Work from the Ends In

Now that you have two ends to work with, it's time to start untangling your necklace. Begin by gently working out any knots or tangles you see near the ends of the necklace. Once those are taken care of, start working toward the centre of the necklace, gently pulling out any knots or tangles you come across.

Step Five: Prop Up the Necklace

Once you have gotten all of the knots and tangles out of your necklace, it's time to prop it up so that you can check for any missed spots.
