I have 1mm stringing chain (not chain made of 1mm links). I know I can use end crimps on this chain that have an inner diameter of 1.2mm to 1.5mm for a single strand necklace. However, I would like to make a multiple strand necklace using this 1mm stringing chain. What do I use to secure the three strands of chain together at the end of the necklace? Do I use an end crimp that has an inner diameter large enough to accommodate all three strands of chain and crimp it or would I use a fold over end crimp?
I would probably do each strand separately and then connect them with a jump ring. I would worry that using one larger crimp for all three strands wouldn't hold as securely.
Thanks for your reply Kelsy, that is what I will do (sorry I am late in responding back)..
I dislike metal on metal crimping, I think it isn't secure. But I have to repair so many necklaces with a metal crimp over beading chain - I add a dab of glue inside the crimp.

Thanks for the glue tip, I will be sure to use it when crimping.
