First, find yourself a nice flat surface - such as a desktop or countertop - to work on.
Then bring in the light source. A lamp, flashlight or phone will help you to clearly see any knots and tangles in the chain so you can work on them without straining your eyes.

Now, it's time to get down to business! Use a needle to carefully work through each knot - insert the needle into the knot, then try gently pulling apart the chain. If the knots are too small for a needle, use tweezers instead. Applying a small amount of baby oil to the chain can help lubricate any particularly stubborn tangles and make them easier to tackle - but make sure you wash with mild soap, rinse with warm water and pat dry with a soft cloth afterwards.

Above all, stay patient and gentle with your fine chain necklace. Rushing the process can only make things worse, so take your time untangling each knot until you can let the beautiful strands of your necklace flow freely again.
