I love the layered look of multi strand necklaces. This one has four separate strands all joined together. One strand is all beads the same size and another is continuous beads with three small and then one large. The other two strands are links with beads on each link, one is small uneven stone and the other has a mix of all sorts. Each strand needs to be a slightly different length so they sit nicely, play around with the lengths before finishing to make sure they look how you like.
