Shaggy earrings are a great way to make a colorful statement! We usually make the "core" in silver or gold and then pick a bright color for the "shag". The core is made in a 1-into-1 pattern and a variety of sizes work well...you probably have jump rings left over from another project which will work! We frequently use 18 gauge 3.75mm or 20 gauge 3mm ID. To make the shag, just add on jump ring on each side of your core. You can add a bead or charm at the bottom if you would like. DONE!
