Implosions, they're deadly and terrifyingly scary, yet beautiful at the same. We wanted to recreate the effect of an implosion in glorious technicolour that lacked the nasty, destructive qualities but looked nice in an earlobe.

After much material-fiddling, our Implosion plugs were born. These babies are transparent, deep-filled with splattery implosions of colour, and come in a wide variety of your choice of colours. 

Implosion plugs are available in sizes 8mm / 0g up to 22mm / 7/8"  from this listing here, and we'll also be keeping a stock of ready-to-ship blue and purple Implosion plugs here (pictured below) with more ready-made colour-combos coming soon. We can also make these in bigger sizes; they do come up a bit heavy but please feel free to make a custom request on the product page if your size is not currently listed.

The sun is out (temporarily, it'll be cloudy tomorrow), which means it's time for lazing about in the garden enjoying summer fruits in a jug of Pimms, and these new additions to the Fruity Sherbet plugs family.

First off all, we have the Grapefruit Sherbet plug, with its contrasting flashes of tangy orange and leafy green over a pink translucent background. And then there's Grape Sherbet plug that sports flashes of deep blues and purples over a translucent background. 

Both of these new plugs are pictured upper right, posing away with the perennial favourite, Strawberry Sherbet (pink/blue/purple). Also looking for your attention are the oldies but goodies - Apple Sherbet (clear/green/blue), Blackcurrant Sherbet (mauve/blue/teal) and the original Lemon Sherbet (yellow/green/orange) plugs, and they're all pictured over there, bottom right.

Fruity Sherbet plugs are available as made-to-order plugs here, with a choice of front types, flare types and colours, in sizes 8mm / 0g up to 20mm / ~3/4" (bigger sizes coming soon).

Yummy.

Our escapades with faux stone continue, with these red, translucent plugs with iridescent flashes of blue and a bit of purple and gold, too. 

These look gorgeous in real life but are yet another design that we can't get good pictures of. The pic on the top is Instagrammed with the phonecam, rubbish but brings out the blues the best. Bottom pic was done in light box with a slightly better camera and shows off the reds.

We'll be trying to keep a ready-to-go stock of these here, but if your size isn't available then these are also available here (6mm (2g) up to 20mm(~3/4")). Bigger sizes and different translucent colours available soon :)

I like making fake rocks. Normally, I would make big ones out of concrete, chicken wire, rubble and acrylic paint and stick them out in the garden, but it's getting pretty full out there now and I'd quite like a veggie patch, so we thought we'd concentrate our efforts on little things and make faux-stone plugs.

These particular plugs have a silvery cracked, veiny faux stone underneath a smooth resin top, and are available in two different varieties - Electric (Teal to Deep Blue colour-shifting) and Rusty Moss (Deep Orange to Green colour-shifting). There'll be more colours to come in the future, we're just waiting for some cool beans to turn up :)

The ones pictured have flat front flares (these look nicer and more 'natural'), but are also available with domed fronts as well (brings out the colour-shift a bit more).

Both the Electric and Rusty Moss Shimmer Stones are available in the shop at 10mm (00g) up to 24mm (1" Small), and we'll be working on getting these out in bigger sizes at some point in the future.
