i work with resin and i've used it to make all sorts of plugs and stuff...

so i updated this by restoring the links to old photos and adding some new photos as my technique has improved some. 

these were the famous 3/4" gold leaf-filled gold-plated tunnels i made for a friend

then i started making them with silver leaf in steel tunnels

having fun with rose buttons Smiley

winter themed

conversation heart candy plugs

more Valentine's themed

tunnels filled with sand and shells

plugs with handcuffs...haha

acrylic tunnels with resin and wisdom teeth

newsprint plugs

with faceted gems inlaid

body modification themed body jewelry!

and a bunch of random ones:

and some ones that i can put regular earrings through
i've given away a lot of pairs to friends to see if they have any negative reactions to the resin.  so far, so good.  i feel a lot more comfortable filling tunnels though, because it's safer for close skin contact

Oh do you sell them? ( I'm always looking for unique tunnels)

i do sell them, at the risk of the buyer.  they aren't for freshly stretched lobes or new piercings.  they carry the same risks as acrylic plugs.

Thanks. I read an article on BME not too long ago about using things like that in your ears. Ive never had problems with them so far but I dont sleep with my clay or acrylic plugs in anyways.

they all look amazing! if you have a link to where you sell them i would love to buy some. but i think you are right. i think it might be safer just to fill tunnels because then that way there isn't any contact with the resin. but other than that amazing job!

These are so beautiful. This type of piercing never appealed to me before, but your jewelry is so gorgeous! I love the rose buttons.

Holy cow.  I'm so impressed.  It makes me want to start stretching my ears just to be able to wear plugs that match the sparkly vinyl seat of my Schwinn Stingray Smiley  Kudos!
