richardeffinivey:

The raw material (aka wood) can be expensive, rare, and hard to find.  Some wood needs to be shelved to dry for YEARS before it can be made into jewelry.  Then that wood is turned in a space dedicated to making jewelry, on equipment that costs money to purchase and maintain, by a person who has to be paid well for their expertise.  Then it gets polished, inspected for quality, and shipped to a studio. At the studio, it gets inspected, periodically oiled, put on display, and must be sold at a profit to cover all the costs incurred in the process.  

A well made pair of something as simple as wood plugs takes a lot of love and dedication, and a small initial investment ensures you’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come.

@gogosavvy made me some new plugs, as well as my fab rutilated quartz labret! These are 1” nephrite jade, with a matte finish on one side (shown), and polished smooth on the other. These were made to match a pounamu hei-tiki that my sister gave me a long time ago!

We just got a bunch of beautiful new gold ends from BVLA at Saint Sabrina’s in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I sat down for a few minutes and grabbed some photos of them today.

There are definitely perks to working with people who know how to use a camera :) I’m so happy about how these new color combos turned out!

Here is a healed set of 12ga nipple piercings I did some time ago! We just fit a set of custom forward-facing titanium nipple barbells with #52 purple opal from Anatometal for her yesterday, which I think look great!

I did these lip piercings a little while ago, and we downsized them this week, and fitted some gorgeous gold titanium with pink CZ gemstones!
