Hello there,

We've decided to reorganise the shop a little bit, in a mostly harmless way.

  • http://customplu.gs now points to our shop.
  • We've retired our 'Special Stuff' section here on the blog and moved it to the shop. You'll be able to check out your custom artwork plugs, special stuff, etc there.
  • We've been unsure as to whether to keep the Etsy shop, but have now decided -- the Etsy shop will stay and house our experiments and special offers. Etsy listings will also be included in the shop here.
Should be a little more stream-lined now, though, you know, there's always room for improvements.  Any comments, questions, suggestions, etc, then please contact us or leave a comment :)

Custom request for a client with a prismatic twist. Looks a silvery colour in low light, but bursts into an explosion of colour when in the sun, or the light hits it right.

We'll be bringing back these double-flared acrylic plugs soon (but still can't find a half-decent source of screwback plugs so they'll be a while yet, whinge), but for the time being, we can make these in the usual surgical steel for you.


One pair of 316L Surgical Steel plugs with iridescent, glittery scales, reminiscent of a tail of a mermaid. Reduced as the plugs are different lengths. Yep. Hmm. Won't do that again.
