New jewelry, as promised!

Aesthetics' storefront is moving!

(don't worry though, we're just moving across the street!)

What this means for our local friends/clients:
We will be closing our storefront at our current (2 Johnson Ave) Saturday, August 30th to begin our move. Our new location will be a shared building here in Irvington with Snips salon and spa, and Edibles organic market. Our new address will be:

5612 E Washington Street, Suite B
Indianapolis, IN 46219

We will be taking the month of September to remodel the new location (and get married!) and will be re-opening October 1st in our new location. We're really excited about the new location, and can't wait for you all to come visit us!

What this means for our webstore/online friends/clients:
Not much, really. We'll be checking the webstore and e-mail regularly like usual during the remodel, processing orders, making jewelry, etc. so everything will stay smooth. We will, however, be on vacation for a week prior to our wedding, but we'll post more information about how that will affect ordering on the webstore when we get closer to that date.

If you just came for jewelry photos, check our blog for some new stuff such as

In no particular order: 2" Desert Ironwood Burl teardrops, 3 1/2" Amboyna burl convex (monsters!), 1 3/4" terraced ebony concaves, and an all-matching set of Olivewood

New old stuff!

We've (re)added some new old items to our webstore for those of you who might have noticed.

For the big-lobed people: We discontinued big delrin eyelets (the 2"+ stuff) and plugs a couple months ago because working with them caused the delrin to heat which resulted in a finish that we weren't really happy with. We've found a way to solve that though by doing eyelets only, and making the walls thinner. So we now introduce big delrin (thin-walled) eyelets! Not only is it safer for us to work with and the finish better, the thinner walls make them much lighter... and they look good too!

For the big-labret people
: We've also found a way to get a better finish that we're really happy with on delrin at lower speeds, so we've added black delrin as an option to our t-back labrets for those of you that aren't into the white look or just want a change of pace. The material is still too hard (unfortunately) to really do ovals without a ridiculous amount of extra work that wouldn't be justifiable, BUT, for the rounds we're happy to add black delrin as an option. Additionally, we likely won't add it as a product, but for those of you who like the look of wood in labrets but are still stretching or just don't like wearing wood in your lip for whatever reason, we can do wood inlays in PTFE or Delrin labrets for you -- just send us an e-mail and we can make that happen.

More stuff coming soon!
