Horn and bone body jewelry is here! Please note that water buffalo horn is black (or occasionally creamy medium tan, or brown rootbeer-like and translucent) and bone is white. Horn is made primarily of keratin, a fibrous protein, similar to that found in quills, claws, nails, hooves, feathers, wool, and hair, and is a very different material than bone, which is largely composed of the mineral calcium carbonate and the protein collagen. Please note that most horn (at least 90%) is black, and very little (less than 10%) is brown; these variations occur randomly within each shape and size category, and always sell quickly, thus will usually be unavailable.

We do not sell horn that is reddish-orange in color; this color of horn does not occur naturally and has been achieved through chemical bleaching which denatures the protein, causing permanent problems including softening, dull finish, increased texture and even stickiness, crazing, cracking, and other inappropriate problems for a material intended to be used for body piercing jewelry.

Please request current catalog pages to see the newest pricing and current inventory, or download this list via page 3 of our online catalog. We only sell what we currently have in stock and no custom orders can be taken, though you can ask to be placed on a wait list if what you need is not currently in stock.
This jewelry is made by carvers who work in millimeters, so may not necessarily match exact gauges or fractional inches. This also means we have plenty of inbetween sizes, so feel free to ask!
You may order it in any measuring unit and we'll do our best to match exactly what you're looking for.

We do not use item numbers, so a basic description of what you are interested in will suffice...
(for example: a pair of 00ga hollow horn saddles with dots along the rim, in brown horn if possible).
In the case of engravings, inlays, and silver caps, you can simply describe how a design looks...
(for example: 1" black horn plugs with inlaid white bone open star with pie wedges between the points).
Labels with the specific names of many of our designs are shown below and on page 3 of the catalog.
You could also refer to how far down the page a specific image appears, and which piece within that image... (for example: in the third image down, the fourth plug shown on the bottom row, an 8-petaled Borneo flower, in 5/8").

The material comes from domestic Indonesian water buffalo horn (Bubalus bubalis) and cow or buffalo bone; both are used as draft animals (for example, to plow muddy rice paddies) and are consumed as food. They are highly valued and are not dispatched only for their horns or bones; these have an incredibly small value compared with that of a living animal. Water buffalo horn and bone are obtained after death, and since the cultures from which they are attained believe in utilizing the whole animal, nothing goes to waste, and thus the animal is honored more fully. Scroll down this page for a quote...

Images shown represent a fair cross-section of the types of shapes, angles, sizes, colors, hues, engravings, etc., that occur within the given styles of horn and bone jewelry available. Variations will always occur as all of these pieces are hand made by humans out of naturally-occurring, non-homogenous materials. If you need clarification about any of these factors, please ask before placing an order.

International customers:
Please ask your customs' agents and wildlife officials about federal and local laws in your country which may restrict or prohibit the importation of certain animal products such as horn, bone, or shell. You will be asked to sign a release form if you order animal products to be shipped to a foreign address.

The following are the wholesale prices for our usual stock of horn and bone jewelry.
Prices shown are per PAIR unless specified (as with labrets and septums, which are sold singly).
This comprehensive list does not necessarily reflect current availability; to see what is in stock and to view current pricing please call, download the catalog page, or ask for one to be mailed to you.

*hollow horn plugs NEW Berber tribe tribal dots*

    *bone hollow and solid saddles double flared ear plugs*
  • Various white bone saddles, solid or hollow, are available, but are often hard to get, as bones contain porous marrow centers which must be worked around.
    We also have some fossilized mammoth ivory saddles; these can be seen below. These tend to be more tan in color, with cross-hatched lines that intersect at a high angle called Schreger lines. Note that mammoth ivory is very sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. We currently have solid plugs in <1/2" and 5/8" pairs, plus a few singles.
    Some of our 'solid' bone saddles up to 1" are actually hollow pieces with bone caps on each end, as shown in bottom right of the image. This cuts down on weight.
    We have a few solid moose antler saddle shaped plugs
    (see the images we've posted far below - at the bottom).

: Hollow and Solid Horn Saddles with Opal Inlays :

Please note that all inlay materials are more sensitive to changes in heat and humidity as the materials expand and contract at different rates. Since opals naturally contain water, they are even more susceptible to these effects, and may become dislodged. Please handle and store these materials with special care.

*58ths through 1 inch hollow horn plugs with opals inlay*

    We currently have some extremely thin 21ga and 20ga horn septum pinchers.
    18ga is our usual minimum due to strength issues. This little guys are fragile and extremely delicate, tend to flex more, and are prone to break easily unless being handled with the utmost care.
    We also have TINY overall 10ga horn pincher shapes for other spots.
    We also have small horn CBR/larger pincher shapes in 14ga and ≤13ga.

    We also have small bone CBR/larger pincher shapes in 14ga, >14ga, 13ga and 7ga.
    *14ga gauge horn septum pincher and CBR comparison*
  • Hey! Let's discuss the difference between a septum pincher and a CBR shape.
    It's all about overall diameter: septum pinchers (seen here in the center in 14ga)
    have much smaller overall diameters than CBR shapes (seen around it, also in 14ga).
    Overall sizes change from gauge size to gauge size. Gap sizes may differ, too.
    Septum pinchers tend to be ever so slightly oval overall, rather than completely round.
    Our CBR shapes, on average, tend to be too large for most folks wanting septum rings.
    Are these measurements important to you? Then ask us about them when you order!!!

: Please note :

We recommend purchasing only from companies that utilize unique horn inlay patterns and overall shapes, when going beyond the range of basic universal designs such as spirals and solid stars. There is a huge problem of original designs being passed around the carving workshops in Indonesia, where copyright laws are hard to enforce, and artisans often have lenient attitudes about reproducing designs they have seen in their neighbors' shops.

We know that there may be examples of honest mistakes, and that there is a possibility that someone may have purchased work from carvers who have copied designs without the knowledge of a purchaser. However, we feel that it is the responsibility of those who are selling products to ensure that the designs they are utilizing are original works, copyright free, or utilized only with direct written consent from the producer of the artwork. Please ask first about the origins of a design.

There are several of our designs that we have found being produced without authorization. These include, but are not limited to: stars with pie wedges, the 5 diamonds with 4 spirals design, and the 3 diamonds design. While there are many more, we have had the most trouble with these particular patterns being copied. Erica personally drew these designs; they are not from a book or other publication. They have been carved into jewelry for other companies and posted onto other sites and print literature without permission or credit. We have not sold or licensed them to any distributors. Not only is this uncreative, immoral, and rude, it is unlawful. We take this matter very seriously. We ask these companies and distributors to please discontinue selling our designs immediately and to remove them from any online or printed materials such as catalogs.

There are several other people and companies out there that we know have also had their designs for engravings and overall horn shapes reproduced without their permission, and it continues to be a growing problem. This applies to manufacturers and distributors of other body jewelry materials as well, such as surgical steel, stone, hardwood, glass, etc. We are requesting your help in putting an end to these unfair and unethical practices. Please let us know when you see examples of this, and think hard before purchasing from companies that steal intellectual property.

*Michael's water buffalo pic*

Finally, we felt that it would be appropriate to include a photo and quote that we feel sums up the status, reverence, and respect the water buffalo commands in the areas in which it is found.
Attributed to an otherwise anonymous SE Asian rice farmer, he said:
"To my family, the buffalo is more important than I am.
When I die, they'll weep for me; but if our buffalo dies, they may starve."

*fossil walrus ivory oosik tusk tooth plugs*
*fossil walrus ivory oosik tusk tooth plugs*

A limited selection of fossilized walrus ivory hollow and solid double flared plugs, made from either oosik, tooth, or tusk. These are gorgeous variable tan colored, often with darker flecks, and tend to be a more porous and slightly textured bone material (especially the oosik).
Top row: >0ga solid ($20/pair, and another not shown creamier pair), 7/16" solid ($28/pair-SOLD),
1/2" hollow ($32/pair), 1/2" solid ($32/pair), >9/16" solid ($36/pair).

Fossil walrus ivory will not be shipped to the States of Hawaii, California, or New Jersey.

*fossilized mammoth ivory ear plugs*

High quality mammoth ivory saddle shapes!
These are expertly carved, highly consistent, and made from the best possible material.
Fossilized (mineralized) mammoth ivory is creamy white to very light tan (though darker variations sometimes occur), with characteristic cross-hatching in the form of intersecting Schreger lines similar to those seen on elephant ivory, but intersecting at different angles.
Please note that fossilized mammoth ivory is particularly sensitive to changes in heat and humidity.
Extra care should be taken to protect these items from such shifts, and should not be worn while bathing.
They should always be kept well-oiled.
Mammoth ivory cannot be shipped to the States of Hawaii, California, New York, or New Jersey.

Only a few remaining pairs left!
<1/2" ($25/pair).
±5/8" (were $30/pair, but will be discounted due to quality issues such as cracks).

...and a few single pieces left:
a single ≤4ga fossilized mammoth ivory cylinder ($12/piece), and
a single ≤00ga fossilized mammoth ivory saddle ($12/piece).

We also have: 0ga horn plugs with tan mammoth ivory (?) inlays ($20/pair)
(seen above with the oddballs, or just click here - they are on the upper left).

We also have mammoth ivory labrets in:
11ga, 10ga, 8ga, 6ga, 5ga, >1ga but <0ga, 7/16",
a ≤0ga fossilized walrus ivory labret with a thin oval backing disc,
and a few other big mammoth ivory labrets with quality issues
available at a discount (6ga, 4ga, 0ga, 00ga).

*Inuit Alaska bone 4 curved tusks*

Inuit Alaskan bone curved tusks
(old artifacts, probably not originally used for septums but for another utilitarian purpose).
They are all between 00ga and 7/16", and are merely $15/each.
The top piece has SOLD.

Other types of bone plugs may occasionally be available, including fossilized walrus, mammoth, or mastodon ivory. The material is dug from the permafrost or found near rivers in the summer months by natives of Alaska or Russia. The fossil ivories tend to be off-white to creamy tan, though some samples may be peanut butter brown or even darker. Walrus ivory can have an oatmeal-looking amorphous center, while mammoth and mastodon exhibit a gorgeous cross-hatched pattern called Schreger lines that can be used to distinguish the materials.

*white bone antler plugs*

Antler plugs are occasionally available as a custom order; we do not normally stock them.
Antler is a type of bone that is dense and white, with a grayish marrow center. It holds a fine polish.
These are generally from deer, but may also be from moose. Antlers are shed annually, unlike horns.
The picture above is shown smaller than life size.

*huge white antler ear plugs*
*small hollow white bone saddles plugs*
*small solid white bone saddle shaped earplugs*

We sometimes have moose antler (shown) and other antler plugs in larger hollow and solid plugs.
Scroll up for the full listing and prices in the bone saddles section. Prices are the same, for now.
Some of those depicted with the black backgrounds are regular bone, though most of the larger sizes are indeed made out of moose antler as seen in the top image with the gray background.

These happen to be cylinders around ≤1-3/8" in diameter, though if you are considering wearing them as plugs, please note that they are very long in length, they are made of several elements that have been glued together, and that the lids are loose and will come off unless something such as beeswax is used to make them have more of a grip.
We have two of each design, and would prefer to sell them as pairs instead of as singles. $30/pair.
Fronts are shown first, followed by a back side, side view, and an opened box.

*African and American porcupine quills porcupine quill*
*African and American porcupine quills porcupine quill*

Porcupine quills from Africa (Hystrix cristata) or America (Erethizon dorsatum) are available.
They have been used traditionally as septum spikes, and might also be used as hairsticks,
or as tapers (cut with a razor or very sharp knife - the ends can then be sealed with wax).
Please note that these quills have not been cleaned, and you should expect natural variation.
Also note that African porcupine quills do not have barbs, whereas
American porcupine quills have a region of about 4mm near the dark brown tips that do have barbs.
Thus American quills should always be both inserted and removed brown side first,
or this area can be removed using a razor or sharp knife, then sealing the ends with wax.
Quills are tapered on both ends and tend to be fatter at one end. We measure them in the center.
After years of being unable to find them, we now have quills measuring 12ga, 11ga, and 10ga available!

Long African quills are offered for $2/each.
We normally have them ranging from around 13ga up to 1ga, and from 3" to 12" in length.
We have some quills available for $1/each with broken ends, creases, and other quality issues.

Tiny American quills are all very thin, and are around 1-1/2" to 2" long.
These are 5 for $1 for sizes that range from hair thin up to around 16ga or so.
These American porcupine quills are available only as a grab bag of various random sizes;
or, we can individually measure these and send a specific size of quill for $1/each piece.
Pre-measured fatties (American porcupine quills that are 15ga to 12ga or so), are $1/each.

*porcupine quills RARE orange and yellow*

We have a stash of rare African porcupine quills that have yellow, tan, and orange hues!
We've been assured that these are naturally occurring, and have been caching them away for years.
Now we are ready to offer some up for sale:
$4/each for tans and yellows, and $5/each for oranges.
Great for hairsticks, septums, tapers, and displays!
Sizes range from 9ga up to 2ga, with lengths from 4" up to 1 foot!!!
Please click on the above cropped image to view one at full size.

A word about quills and shipping, as this is one of our lowest-priced items:
We have held out for years in regards to not having a minimum order.
However, our rule is to not process orders where the shipping is more than the total of the products.
Thus, we do not ship out orders of just one quill.
Please keep in mind it takes us time to process, pack, and ship each order,
so we hope you'll find more goodies to include in your order so everyone is happy!
Thank you for your understanding.

*python snake ribs*

*python snake rib cluster*

Here we show python ribs, which are $2/each for medium to large ones
(smaller ones have SOLD and are not depicted).
We also have a few rare very long or quite thick snake ribs that are $5/each.
The maximum size for the thickest ones is around 9ga-8ga in the center,
or 6ga at the knob end; most are smaller.

Keep in mind these are not round, but something like very flat ovals in cross-section.
Thus they are very difficult to measure. Requested measurements beyond 'large' or 'medium' will be estimates only, cost double, and you should specify if you are aiming for that measurement near the center of the rib or nearer to the larger knobby end. Most tips have minor flares.
Python ribs cannot be shipped to the State of California.

*baculum bacula raccoon bone*

*raccoon baculum bacula penis bones mandala*

These images show raccoon bacula, another word for penis bone (plural = baculum), which can be a neat alternative for smaller ear holes or for wacky septums, to wire wrap or make necklaces or other jewelry, or just for natural history purposes. This is somewhat of a smaller size for $3/each. SOLD OUT
Please click on the lower image of the baculum mandala to view a large one,
although it has not been posted at life size.

Baculum are found in a surprisingly large amount of mammals, including rodents, bats, bears, seals, walruses (the Inuit term for walrus bacula was oosik), otters, beavers, badgers, foxes, minks, raccoons, shrews, hedgehogs, wolves, coyotes, dogs, and many primates (but not humans!).
Incidentally, female capuchin monkeys, mice, and at least some chipmunks and squirrels, have an 'os clitoris,' which is a clitoris bone! The term for this is a baubellum, which means gem or jewel.
