Our abstract plugs have been selling nicely, and we've had quite a few custom requests in different colours, all of which were fab TBH. So we've had to readjust the listings a bit -- rather than fill up the shop with millions of types of abstracts, we've done a few custom listings where you can pick the design and colours, then we make them for you.


Abstract Blobs: Bubbly blobs of colour.
Abstract Faux Stone: Fake stone to match your outfit.
Abstract Flowers: Flowers for every occassion.*

These are available in the shop now in a wide variety of colours from sizes 8mmm (0g) up to 30mm (1 3/16"). 

*These are no longer available due to some unforeseen technical issues -- working on a way around this.

These were a custom request for something 'iris-y', which was a right result as we're still enjoying the joy of paint and blobby things. Come up lovely, these did, must make more.


Purple and yellow abstract blobs in the form of an iris.
  • Handmade and handpainted. 
  • Available in 8mm (0g) - 30mm (1 1/16"). 
  • 316L Surgical Steel 10.5mm (3.8") or 12mm (1/2") long, depending on batch. 
  • Domed, clear resin front flare. 
  • Irises. They're not just for spring anymore. 
We'll be adding these on to our catalogue over the next few weeks, but if you can't wait until then you can make a custom request using this handy form.

Fake plugs. They're not plugs, but they're not earrings either. They're quite possibly something else altogether but, regardless of what they are, we get asked about them a lot so we make them now.


Ignore the bit on the photo that says they're 1.6mm, that would be due to brain running in neutral at 2AM whilst semi-watching The West Wing. They're really 1.2mm (16g).

This fake plug is like the surface of a magical pond -- it has a blue, shimmering background covered in rainbow glitter flakes and bits of prismatic micro-glitter that catch the light.

Handmade
316L Surgical Steel
1.2mm (16g) with 7mm (5/8") front flares
6mm (1/4") stem length.
Slightly domed, clear front flares
Rainbow flakes change colour depending on light and angle

These Bright Water faux plugs are available in the shop now, as are the Sunset Waters. Also, we can do a wide variety of things on these -- theoretically we should be able to put anything we currently do at 6mm (2g) on these, if you're interested then make a request :)

It's great when we get custom requests for things over 20mm cos they're awesomely fun to do. So much fun that we're starting to keep 22mm up to 30mm in stock now.


These were done in acrylic at our client's request. These are technically One of a Kind as we're not making any more of these in acrylic, but we can do them in the usual 316L surgical steel (heavy, working on this).
  • Handmade and handpainted. 
  • Black double flared acrylic
  • 25mm (1")
  • Domed, clear resin front flares.
  • Nebulous domed backs.
  • Nebulae subtley change colour depending on light and angle.

Wonderful, watery plug in vivid colours that make me go all happy-face. Greens, purples and blues flash at you, depending on light and angle.
  • Handmade. 
  • 316L Surgical Steel 
  • Slightly-domed, clear resin front flares. 
  • A colourful shimmering ocean of oh yeah.
  • Bonus YouTube video.
These are currently available at our shop in sizes 3mm (8g) and up.

Have found the painting of abstract flowers to be a very relaxing pastime ...


Pink and purple blobs that we call Abstract Orchids because we don't know what else to call them.
  • Handmade and handpainted. 
  • 316L Surgical Steel 
  • 12mm (1/2") 
  • Slightly-domed, clear resin front flares. 
  • We could have called these George, but it didn't seem right.
These are currently available at our shop in sizes 8mm (0g) and up. Also, we can do different colour flowers, please make a custom request if that tickles your fancy :)

Should maybe start about not naming things after songs, as whenever we see a plug named after a song the song stays in our head for ages. It can be distracting, like these plugs.

Flashing rainbow that reflects colour like a very colourful thing, absolutely bonkers. Did we mention that they're colourful?
  • Handmade. 
  • Available in 3mm (8g) - 20mm (~3/4"). 
  • 316L Surgical Steel. 
  • 10.5mm (3/8") or 12mm (1/2") long, depending on batch. 
  •  Slightly domed, clear resin front flare 
  • Yes, we've got a video -- http://youtu.be/UufWgXV07j0 
These plugs are currently made to order and are available here.

This was a custom request that we'd really like to make available to all, which we're going to do as our lovely client has given us permission to do so, yay, thank you \o/


Abstract green and metallic silver blobs with a glossy black base.
  • Handmade and handpainted. 
  • 316L Surgical Steel 
  • 20mm (~3/4") 
  • Slightly-domed, clear resin front flares. 
  • Green and black glittery backs. 
  • It's like a rock that has been formed by some kind of awesome. 
We're working on getting these available for sizes 8mm (0g) and up at the mo, but feel free to chuck us a custom request if you want us to hurry up, shake our thang and get them ready already.

A not so subtle name for a not so subtle plug -- these are for when you want to get noticed, because they are quite, errr, noticeable.

CHROMATIC DEATH: Purple version. Flashing rainbow that reflects colour like a very colourful thing, absolutely bonkers. Did we mention that they're colourful? Available from 3mm (8g) and upwards.

Warning: Do not purchase if you do not like colour, people mentioning what you're wearing in your ears or plugs named after short Stormtroopers of Death songs.

Due to the dynamic nature of these plugs, they could really use a video to show off all the colour so we made one.

Sometimes, due to it's somewhat renegade nature, glitter really gets on my nerves. I love working with it, but I hate it when it travels and ends up in my dinner, or in my phone, or follows me up the A10 to gently nestle in my mother's cream carpet.

It appears on my husband's face. At work. Never good. It just gets everywhere, which is why its sometimes nice to work with paint and make some abstract stuff.

Anyway, new shop is open and we can fit in loads more products. It's marvellous, it's like living in a bedsit that is the size of a cupboard then moving into a real house and being able to stretch out your arms without walls interfering or tripping over something and concussing yourself on the edge of a coffee table.

Moving on ...


Abstract Orchid Blobs: Pink and purple blobby flower petals. From 8mm (0g).
Abstract Moon Rock: A barren, cratered look in a smooth plug. From 6mm (2g).
Abstract Turquoise Blobs: Like a turquoise stone. With blobs. From 8mm (0g).

We've had to take photos of plain tunnels and o-rings and other boring sundry items, and it's not the most interesting of subject matter. We decided to brighten them up a bit with our glittery Devalued Master Chief.

These were one-of-a-kinds (no requests for these, sorry) and were a shimmery combination of white, pink, gold and green iridescence, fit for a mermaid.

A real mermaid. To match the tail, you see.

These needed to be triple-sealed for that extra-bit of water-tightness, then they had a good soak-test (which they obviously passed) and off they went on their merry way to their new watery home. We hope that in practice they really are fit for a mermaid :)
  • Handmade and handpainted.
  • 316L Surgical Steel
  • 10mm (00g)
  • Slightly-domed, clear resin front flares.
  • Shimmering gold metallic yumminess.

Well, this week has certainly been interesting. It's been the first week of our new business venture, we made new lovely things, and I melted a computer by plugging in a USB cord upside down (I have worked in IT for 15 years, my first day as a non-IT person and I let out the magic smoke, feel a real sense of achievement now).

Our TV series of the week is Babylon 5 as we've gotten up to series 3 of Bad Girls and it's starting to grind a bit.

Time for some new plugs (and ear studs and cufflinks).


Ocean of Rose: Plug that has its own little iridescent rose garden..
Ocean of Dragonfly: Wonderful, watery plug in vivid colours that make me go all happy-face.
Ocean of Ice: A frozen ocean with a beautiful rainbow of flashing pastel colours.

Now available in the Big Shop, plug sizes from 3mm (8g) - 20mm (~3/4).
