I made a multi strand lariat style necklace that is now sitting in my thinking box.

When worn the weight of the multi strand focals pulls through the lariat loop. It doesn't quite choke the wearer but it does not lay properly on the body.

Can I add a heavy bead to the loop or are there other suggestions to help this necklace wear correctly?

I love lariats, but it is the connection between the two strands that is the tricky bit. Lately I have been using thread for a softer drape, and either knotting the strands, or simply twisting them together. I admit that I often Image Search on Google for ideas on lariats!

May I see a photo of your design? It might help.
