Natural Ceramic Black Lightning Flesh Plug

I think about it every day… what can I wear in my stretched earlobes that hasn’t been done a thousand times already? In a constant search of innovation and wow-factor of my body piercing jewellery, I’ve come to realise that it’s time to discover body jewellery all over again, in style.

Natural Fossil Mata Ortiz Stone Flesh Plug

Similar to our fabulous gemstone flesh plugs, these natural fossils and minerals include natural materials that you have never seen before, guaranteed. An instant favourite of mine has got to be the bold and minimal Lava Flesh Plug. Slick!

Natural Lava Stone Flesh Plug

Each one is a stunning representation of mother nature, displaying natural markings, hues and textures. You will love yours. Each and every one is a completely unique piece, I personally refer to these as a work of art in itself. It goes without saying that stretched piercing jewellery has definitely come a long way since the introduction of standard flesh tunnels and flesh tubes, I think we’d all agree.

 

Natural Travertine Stone Flesh Plug

Natural stone flesh plugs are double-flared, only recommended for healed stretches. It’s important to change your gauge gradually, allowing ample healing time between sizes (normally a minimum of 3-4 weeks). The best and easiest way to stretch your ear piercing is with the use of stretching tapers (or Insertion Pins) found on BodyJewelleryShop.

Natural materials worn in stretched piercings help to reduce bad odour and offer great biocompatibility, ensuring a safe and comfortable piece of jewellery especially for people with allergies or sensitive skin.

Natural materials such as Wood, Bone and Buffalo Horn are among the oldest materials used for body piercing jewellery. Natural materials are sourced from different areas of the world and can be shaped, carved and refined in many forms. Flesh plugs, flesh tunnels, spirals and eardrops are some of the most popular pieces of body jewellery available, in many different shapes, sizes, colours and shades. Don’t forget to check out our blog article on Wooden Body Piercing Jewellery! We have a vast range of Natural Body Piercing Jewellery on BJS, including Amber, Bone, Tusk and Tooth, Buffalo, Coral, Gemstones and Minerals, Mammoth, Wood and Nut.

 

 

Here is an article on the craftsmanship of organic body piercing jewellery, so you can see just how your unique, skillfully-designed piece of body jewellery has been created!

 

***

 

(Step 1)

The horn, wood, bone or shell is cut into workable size pieces depending on the size and shape of the jewellery design being made.

 

 

(Step 2)

A rough design outline is hand drawn onto the piece and then the rough shape is carved by hand using various tools suitable for the raw material. The tools include small saws, scrapers, drills and files.

 

 

 

 

 

(Step 3)

The next stage is to refine the shape and size using smaller and smaller hand files until it takes on a more recognizable shape and is measured for approximate gauge sizing.

 

 

 

(Step 4)

If the piece requires an inlay, this is done next using tiny chisels to carve the design into the plug or spiral.

 

 

(Step 5)

After the piece has taken on the correct shape and approximate size the hand sanding and hand polishing is begun. Different grades of sand paper are used starting with 120 grit, then 240 through 360 and 600 grit.

 

 

 

(Step 6)

After the piece has become very smooth we hand polish it using natural bees wax with a small amount of sand added and a strip of natural cotton cloth. The cotton strip is tied to a point at one end and the jewellery is rubbed back and forth along the length of cotton until a high lustre is achieved.

 

 

(Step 7)

The last step is to match the jewellery into pairs taking into consideration colour, shape, size and texture. The gauges are checked and each piece must pass quality control before being approved.

 

 

 

On average it takes 5 hours for experienced artisans to make a pair of organic plugs, organic hooks or organic tunnels.

 

 

Recommended Aftercare for Organic Body Jewellery

  • We recommend cleaning organics with a small amount of water and a natural soap. 
  • Dry immediately after cleaning with clean cotton cloth. Do not dry them in direct sunlight.
  • To restore the lustre, polish with bees wax and a cotton cloth. Any small nicks or scratches can be sanded with 1000 grit sand paper.
  • Polish with natural bees wax (with a little fine sand mixed into it if you wish) and a cotton cloth.
  • We recommend wearing organic body jewellery in healed piercings only.
