:: New-ish batch of Baltic amber plugs! (Spring 2017) ::

*NEW Baltic amber plugs 5 pairs all sizes NEW batch*

These Baltic amber saddles are generally a translucent scrumptious dark honey color, often referred to as "cognac" colored. This batch all have interesting inclusions: there are a good amount of pieces with darker black specks and areas of dark organic debris more typically seen in Mexican amber. The bigger the pieces, the more spectacular! Some of the inclusions are clustered and remind me of galaxies. I'm really pleased with the quality of this amber and the variations of inclusions seen. There are even a few bugs!

*NEW Baltic amber plugs 5 pairs diagnol cluster A*

The short summary is this:
4mm ($5/pair) very short
6mm ($15-30/pair) short
8mm ($20-50/pair) a little short
9.5 to 10mm ($25-60/pair)
11.5 to 12mm ($40-80/pair)
The higher prices are for the better inclusions.


Please head over to our amber page to check out all the details!

:: Our Cafepress shop ::

*cafepress 4X4 grid thumbnails organic poppy mandala Kikuyu woman dakini girl pink dogwood flower blossom shirts long short sleeve bags box magnets pillow pajamas infant onesie*

We have added several items to our online shop set up at cafepress.com/organicjewelry where you can order various fun items with the poppy mandala, dakini girl, dogwood flower, and other designs on them.
We've designed such goodies as:
a clock, mugs, a hat, bags, stickers, long and short sleeved shirts, magnets, pajamas,
an amazing wooden jewelry box with a tile top, a bike messenger style bag, and more!
They take care of all the ordering, taking payment, returns, all that good stuff, so it's a separate deal from us. We get a cut from each item sold. What's really fun is that they print them one at a time, so if only one person orders an item, they'll have a one-of-a-kind product.

:: Body Jewelry from Natural and Traditional Materials ::

:: NEW spotted shell earrings/ear cuffs ::

*spotted shell earrings ear cuffs cowrie* *spotted shell earrings ear cuffs cowrie*
*spotted shell earrings ear cuffs cowrie*
*spotted shell earrings ear cuffs cowrie*
*spotted shell earrings ear cuffs cowrie*

Spotted tiger cowrie shell earrings for larger stretched ear piercings. $40/pair.
These are made out of real tiger cowrie shells (Cypraea tigris), which are white with brown leopard-like spots,
that were cut down to make one-of-a-kind c-shaped earrings/ear weights/ear cuffs.
The natural serration around the gap makes it look a little like teeth.
Although the style is like that of light ear weights, they are not that heavy,
and function a bit more like large dangling ear cuffs.

Two different pairs are available, measured at the widest part of the shell (on the apex of the convex surface).
One pair measures 1-7/16" from left to right from one flattened end to the other.
The other pair measures 1-1/2" from left to right from one flattened end to the other.
Ear piercings will have to be at least each of these sizes in diameter in order to wear them and have a gap of around half that size showing over the top. Larger stretched ears, such as those stretched to around 2", will look even better.

They could be worn with the spotted convex ends showing, or the flatter white ends with the gap showing.
Note that although the shells were selected to be as close as possible to pairs, since these are natural real shells, they vary in size and shape from piece to piece. In addition, there may be some surface mars from natural wear and tear. Expect variation!
Note these photos are not posted at life size.

*single horn Dayak flower plug*

Now up for grabs! Only $10 wholesale.

Custom horn plugs that were never purchased once made,
and a few last of their kind from styles we used to carry:
0ga horn plugs with tan mammoth ivory (?) inlays ($20/pair),
<5/8" horn plugs with coconutwood inlays ($18/pair),
a single ≤5/8" horn plug with a black star surrounded by white bone dust inlay ($10/one),
<1" horn plugs with engraved stars that are not filled in with anything -
the effect is a bit like black on black 3-D nautical stars ($36/pair),
and >1-1/2" hollow horn plugs with small bone dust inlaid dots ($40/pair).

Other new goodies not shown include:
horn omega's now down to 12ga, 11ga, and 10ga,
horn upside-down U's now down to 12ga and 10ga,
