I am wondering how one would go about putting fasteners on the necklace above. I know you can use those crimp beads for smaller thicknesses but this one has me stumped. How is this done?

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I would think it is maybe knotted with cones? Or perhaps ribbon ends?

In general, clasps or ends for satin cording are glued-on tube "cord ends", etc:
Or various kinds of bead caps (bought or made), or other kinds glue on or squeeze on findings, or wire wrappings, etc.

But could also be other things like squeeze-on or glue-on, etc. multi-cord clasps:

There would be several ways to do this, but can't see how she did it unfortunately:

Thank you! I don't know why I didn't think of glue...

There are crimp ends with loops made for leather... perhaps they would also work on satin if you supplemented them with a little glue ...
