If you want something a little different for your piercings take a look at glass body jewelry. Glass is an excellent material for body jewelry and it gives you very stylish alternative to metal body jewelry. Glass body jewelry can be found in a range of beautiful colours and when the light hits a piece of glass jewelry it looks absolutely stunning.
Glass is completely biocompatible and will not react with your skin. This means that it wonâ€™t irritate your skin and is ideal for even sensitive piercings. Another advantage of glass is the smoothness of its surface. It can be polished to a flawless shine and feels especially good in stretched piercings. You might think that glass would be fragile but when correctly designed it is actually very durable. There are lots of different types of glass jewellery but it works best for funky large gauge piercing jewellery.
Krakatoa Glass Body Jewelry
Krakatoa glass is a beautiful variety of natural Java obsidian glass that can be made in to body jewelry. The resulting pieces are truly stunning. Krakatoa glass body jewelry displays a range of lovely colours and natural patterns that glow when light passes through them. It is very durable and has a lovely glassy lustre. These glass flesh plugs can look glamorous or smart depending on your style and they add polished feel to any outfit.
Dichroic Glass Body Jewelry
For extra sparkle and shine, I recommend dichroic glass body jewelry. Dichroic glass contains micro-layers of metal oxides that shimmer and shine with iridescent colours. These pieces are absolutely dazzling and look even better in person. These pieces of glass body jewelry are durable enough for everyday but theyâ€™d be perfect for a special occasion.
Plain Glass Body Jewelry
For rich colour and shine you canâ€™t beat plain glass body jewelry. This type of glass jewelry is great value and comes in a huge range of colours and styles. Clear glass jewelry can look gorgeous but its when you try brightly coloured glass body jewelry that it really stands out. Here are a few of my favourite glass body jewelry pieces:
