Shaggy Loops is a great weave for beginners. Fun and flexible, this weave works in almost any ring size (visit the Weave Ideas section of our blog for ideas), but we love the somewhat chunky look we get from using size L16 (available below!) Once you've learned this weave, you can use it to create necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Use a naturally colored metal for a more modern look or try our colorful anodized aluminum jump rings for a fun and funky accessory! With more than a dozen colors and mixes to choose from, you can customize this piece to match any taste.
Examples to the right are made with earth mix (top) and purple (bottom).
