My boyfriend has been making sergical (sp?) steel captive bead hoops for a long time now. It isnt too hard, what you would want to do is get a steel rod and take it to a machine shop so they can turn it for you. What youll get is something that resembles a long spring.  Cut each one and flatten the hoop (so its all in a straight circle) and then polish it with a dremel.  Im not sure how much he got the steel for, but I have found it and started making my own also. Its so much fun and so cheap. Especially if you are stretching lobes and such.
You will also want to pick the right time to get it peirced. I know tattoo/peircing shops get large booms during the summer months and the girls/boys never think about healing time. Naval peircings do take some time to heal and they need to be kept out of the sun, ocean, etc. (KEPT CLEAN in other words) and without this thought in mind, a lot of naval peircings go bad. Same with tattoos.
