These plugs were inspired by the dragonflies that occasionally fly around the pond in the garden. We loved the way their wings lit up with colour when the light hit them, so began our plans to reproduce the effect for your ear holes. After much sampling and fiddling about, we came up with Dragonfly Wing plugs in sizes 8mm (0g) to 20mm (~3/4") and in three different varieties:

Dragonfly Wings Iridescent Colour Shifting Faux Dichro Plugs
These plugs are transparent with gorgeous flashes of blue, green and ripples of purple. There's also some golden yellow in there when the light hits them right, in fact, there's too much colour for text and pictures to describe.*

Dragonfly Wings Iridescent Colour Shifting Faux Dichro Plugs
Again, these are colourful beasts, slightly transparent with flashes of purple, bronze, green and rainbow. Awful photograph (must sort that out with the next batch), so here's a nice Instagram pic of one sitting in a tree.

These ones are pretty cor blimey gunvor, bright contrasting colours of blue, teal and pinky orange flash away merrily in your ears. The colours were based on the Newsnight logo, but we called them Tropical as you don't get many dragonflies being interrogated by Paxman.

These have been going like hotcakes, so get some in before we run out of the lovely stuff that makes them lovely. Should also have some Pond varieties in as ready-made stock very soon.

*(This is the case with all the Dragonfly Wing plugs, you do need to see them in the flesh).

We've been enjoying some lovely weather as of late, and have been sitting out in the garden enjoying the balmy evenings, copious amounts of coffee and gorgeous sunsets. This inspired us to make a collection of plugs based on the beautiful colours we have seen in various sunsets around the world. They're there, on the right, sitting on a motorbike because that is the only place I could get a half-decent photo of them. They look much more awesome in real life, mind.

These colours in these plugs are hard to describe as they're so dynamic, indeed, we found it hard to name them so we gave them numbers instead. I'll give you a quick run-down of the basic colours ...

Sunset No 2 - Pinky purple with flashes of rainbow.

Sunset No 7 - Purple with flashes of green and rainbow.

Sunset No 9 - Blues, aquas, teals, greens and yellows.

Sunset No 21 - Earthy flashes of orange, pink and blue.

Sunset No 22 -Reddy-pink with flashes of teal and green

Sunset No 24 - Pinky with flashes of teal and blue.

Sunset Plugs are available for pre-order in the shop now in sizes 8mm / 0g up to 20mm / ~3/4" (bigger sizes coming soon). They take up to 14 days to make but I'm sure that there will be some ready-made ones available for purchase very, very soon.

Stained Glass Style Artwork Custom Plugs
We love stained glass, and wanted our own sorta stained glass, with pictures of nice things, bright colours and light. This is how our Stained Glass Style Custom Artwork plugs came about.

These plugs work best with simple artwork with bold, black outlines and blocks of lovely colour. We can not reproduce white at the moment (this comes up as transparent) but our plug-making elves are working on this as I type. Whether they will succced or not is a different story, but we can hope :)

These are fully-filled and do come up a bit heavier than our usual custom artwork plugs (incidentally, these are also fully filled, but we lighten the load on them. There's a plug weight/mass chart here). 

Stained Glass Style Custom Artwork plugs are available from this listing in sizes 10mm / 00g up to 30mm / 1-3/16". We could also do 8mm / 0g but this would depend on the artwork, so you're probably better off making a custom request on the product page if you fancy some in this size.
