If you are looking for something a little different, I recommend taking a look at glass flesh plugs. You might not think of glass as an obvious material for body jewellery but it actually makes a lot of sense. Glass is chemically inert so it is comfortable and it is surprisingly durable. Here at Body Jewellery Shop all our glass flesh plugs are made from lead-free borosilicate glass. This type of glass is completely biocompatible and cannot irritate your skin. It is extremely comfortable to wear and I recommend it for people who have had bad reactions to other materials. Borosilicate glass is also extremely durable and shatterproof. The glass flesh plugs won’t break if you drop them and you would actually have to try very hard to crack them! We have been selling glass flesh plugs for almost a decade and no one has ever had a glass flesh plug break.
Plain Glass Flesh Plugs
Blue Glass Flesh Plug
Plain glass flesh plugs look great and they are very comfortable to wear. The flesh plug pictured on the left is one of our best-sellers and it also comes in red and clear glass. As you would expect, glass has a very smooth surface. This means that glass flesh plugs are easy to insert and remove. The smoothness of the glass reduces friction against your skin and they do not ‘drag’ on newly stretched ears. These coloured glass flesh plugs look even better when sunlight hits them. It makes the colour really come alive, perfect for a bright, summery look.
Glass body jewellery includes a gorgeous selection of glass flesh plugs, glass flesh tunnels, glass claws, glass twists and glass spirals. With such a vibrant selection of colours to choose from, glass body jewellery will brighten up your look in bright pink, blue, green, turquoise, red, glass glitter and many more fabulous combinations!
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 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.

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:
Whether you want to hide your piercings or show them off, clear body jewellery is a great option. Most clear body jewellery is made of glass or skin-friendly plastics such as BioFlex and PMMA acrylic. Clear BioFlex or PMMA body jewellery is often used as a piercing retainer â€“ with the right clear jewellery you can make your piercings very hard to see! Whatever your reason for wearing clear body jewellery it makes a striking change from the traditional silver, black or gold body jewellery.
Will Clear Body Jewellery Hide My Piercing?
Clear body jewellery is usually the easiest way to hide a piercing â€“ or at least make it more discrete. Clear piercing retainers can be very effective â€“ the key is to choose jewellery that lies flat against your skin and blends in with your skin. Instead of threaded balls, most piercing retainers use micro discs, clear O-rings or flared ends to stay in your piercing. How effective the retainer will be also depends on where your piercing is â€“ it is harder to hide a piercing in a prominent location. But with the right clear body jewellery can hide even facial piercings â€“ especially if people do not know that they are there.
