...goodbye blogger!

We've integrated the main page of our webstore at with wordpress, and all posts have been exported there.

What's this mean?

From now on, all you have to do to check out our blog is visit our webstore. New blog posts are displayed in the main ('home') page of the store, and archived posts are tabbed on the sidebar to the right. As of 12-11-08 all new updates about our products and shop will be added there.

December Update

We've got lots of new stuff on the site and in the shop for December, and a few announcements!

We got a TON of new bamboo, rattan, and mixed metal designs from Equipped for Eternity. Lots of really nice stuff... their big antiqued-metal hanging designs look amazing through wood eyelets! We got some specialty bamboo and rattan plugs/eyelets as well -- burnt designs, node-cut bamboo, black bamboo... even some bamboo teardrops!

We also got some prints and original paintings from our good friend and great artist, Steve Thompson. They are gracing the walls of our shop for the time being, but are available here as well as on the webstore in the 'media' section.

We're making some slight changes/improvements on the webstore as well. If you haven't noticed, we've got new categories for our wood jewelry for pre-made jewelry versus custom jewelry. In addition, we're expanding on the amount of pre-made jewelry we have available here at the shop and on the webstore by adding more basic already-made designs. We're starting this expansion with solid single-flared wood plugs from 14 gauge up to 1" in some of our most popular woods -- ebony, granadillo, olivewood, and tiger ebony have already been started, and we'll be adding more woods and basic designs as they are completed.

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos of them wearing our jewerlry -- we'll be adding a photo section specifically for that very soon to the site -- if you haven't sent us photos yet, we could always use more!

And now... holiday stuff!

We've set up a coupon with 'giftmas08' as the code for 10% off anything on our webstore. We've set it to last until the end of December so that if your secret santa doesn't get you that pair of plugs you wanted, you can still use the money from your stocking to get them yourself.

If you plan on getting custom jewelry made in time for x-mas: we will be making the cutoff for orders at 6pm December 20th (when the storefront closes for the weekend) to give us one final weekend to catch up. Any orders placed before that time will be guaranteed to ship by Monday the 22nd. If you plan on getting stuff by the 25th, please order before then and make sure you choose a shipping option that will get them to you in time!

In addition we'll be giving away some free stuff as an end-of-the-year 'thank you' to our loyal clients. We will be contacting the 10 people with the most orders on our store from the past year after the first of the year (not including wholesale accounts... no cheating!) about an extra 'thank you' for all the support.

That's all for now... keep checking back for more updates and features, and have a good holiday season!
