Handmade Buffalo Horn Plugs

I recently got a load of whole buffalo horns in along with a few pieces of deer antler. I quickly got busy and turned some of the buffalo horn on my lathe and created these double flared plugs set with red brilliant cut garnet gems for a customer. Pieces like these are made to order and I can get ahold of almost any colour gem to be set into the front of them this process takes a few extra days for me to receive the gems as they are ordered on request but the results are definitely worth see for yourself…

Delrin & Teflon Custom Made Labrets

I wanted to cover some of the more unique pieces that I custom make for people as I have been cataloguing these creations a lot more religiously than I have in the past. I also now use Delrin a lot more than I used too so its nice to see the contrast between that and PTFE.

Delrin Oval Labrets in 20mmPTFE (teflon) comes in white only and is the only material of these 2 that is recommended for new piercings or fresh stretches, this is because it is easily autoclaved without damaging or melting the jewellery, but also because the surface of PTFE is smooth so any substances, such as the discharges from the piercing are easily cleaned off.

Delrin comes in both black and white, I only use the black delrin as PTFE is better if you want white. Natural delrin (white) is used by the navy for food storage, black delrin is dyed so could (although rare) cause irritation to new piercings or fresh stretches so it is only recommended for healed piercings. Unlike PTFE it cannot be autoclaved.

Fancy Buffalo Horn & Bone Ear Hooks

These Fancy Buffalo Horn & Bone Ear Hooks are new in. The bone hooks are extremely limited and only come in a few sizes due to the limited nature of the material. The buffalo horn hooks of the same designs come in a few more sizes. But I am sure you’d agree that both materials look amazing in these fancy designs.

At last we have these new wood crossovers, these are a very popular design that we have had before in a range of other materials but never wood and many people have been asking for these. These are made from Ebony Wood and have a approx a 4mm gap where they crossover.
