New in at lovelyplugly.com - threaded ends! We've been working on these for a while and it's now time for them to be unleashed into the big wide world.

We've only got limited supplies to work with for the moment, so we've only put glitter threaded ends up, but we will eventually be able to offer a wide range of ends that match our plugs. We've been playing with little galaxy ends, abstract ends, even Chromatic Death ends, so send us a custom request if you fancy any of these and we'll see what we can do :)

For the time being, we're only offering 316L surgical steel 1.6mm / 14g threaded ends. Please note that our ends will be for internally threaded jewellery, but bits for externally-threaded stuff may come up in the future.

Keep an eye on our threaded ends section for more additions!

Our Missus Boot loves wearing her ear danglies through eyelets, but has an unfortunate habit of either losing them, having them fall into her soup or whathaveyou, or breaking them :( She decided to take matters into her own hands and make her own danglies and weights that wouldn't fall out and shatter when they fell on to the floor.

We love the stuff that she's been coming out with, and have decided to stock some of her lovely shinies in the shop. They all have a polymer clay core for both flexibility and toughness, are wonderfully glittery, and are well-sealed to prevent glitter-shed all over your face, clothes and ears. Please note that these should always be worn through eyelets / tunnels, as the materials used for these aren't suitable for being worn in piercings on their own.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Gold Metallic Glitter Seahorsie Ear Weights / Danglies


Copper Metallic Glitter Super Tortoisie Ear Weights / Danglies


Silver Metallic Glitter Snakey Ear Weights / Danglies


Faux Anodised Metallic Glitter Peacockie Ear Weights / Danglies


Black Metallic Glitter Mousie Ear Weights / Danglies

Fancy more of the same? We've got a few more ear weights / hangies of glitter here.

We made some new things for your ears, have had a lovely time testing them out and now they're ready for your ears!

Introducing In the Bath translucent iridescent bubble effect plugs; these are just totally awesome and inspired by bubble bath, cos we love bubbles. They're clear plugs, but have a gorgeous bubbly effect that beams colour when the light catches them. They're lovely bubbly and have fast become a personal favourite.

In the Bath plugs are available in sizes 8mm / 0g up to 25mm / 1" and you can purchase them from this listing - In the Bath Translucent Iridescent Bubble Bath Plug - Available in 316L surgical steel, glass or titanium.

We've been playing about with little nebulae for a while now, and had some fantastic results in making gorgeous 3-D nebula, but decided to save them for when we got some decent glass in. We waited, very patiently, and two and half years later our glass came in. Now we've got our supplies, we can start making more. Yay!

These Nebulous nebula / galaxy / space plugs start at 10mm (00g) and go up to 25mm (1"), but we may be able to go smaller / bigger on these at some point, we'll see how they go. We can make them in glass and titanium as well as the usual 316L steel, with prices starting at £7.99 per plug.

So, what's different about these new Nebulous plugs, you may be asking. Well, as previously mentioned, they sport 3-D handpainted nebula that cloud over a big star, deep-set within the plugs, whereas Space is Deep galaxy / nebula / space plugs and Supernova Remnant galaxy / nebula / space plugs are top-set plugs. They're more an explosion of colour, really. Nebulous plugs are also a bit more subtle with the glitter, but they still have tiny holographic stars that flash tiny rainbows at you. The picture on the left also gives you a better idea of the differences; Nebulous are on the top, Supernova Remnants bottom left, and Space is Deep is on the bottom right. Pictures look flat, so you can't really see the 3D awesome :(

We'll soon be putting up a custom listing for these as well, when we sort out the colours. However, if you're impatient and fancy some Nebulous plugs in green, magenta, purple or reddish, you can contact us or make a custom request on any product page at lovelyplugly.com :)

Nebulous galaxy / space / nebula plugs can be found here, or have a look here for all of our space-themed plugs.

We've got a plug of twinkling rainbows for your ear-holes
this month, yes indeedy :) Plug of the Month for September are these Entanglement Earth Crystal faux dichroic galaxy-style plugs; these are deep-filled with iridescent flashes of orange, green and blue, and set against semi-translucent pearly-white backs.

As usual, photos don't do these justice, these need to be seen in real life for the full extent of their colour-flashy-thang.

These are on special offer throughout the month of September, with prices starting at £6.49 per plug. They're available in sizes 8mm (0g) - 20mm (>3/4") all ready-to-ship, or if you want something bigger (up to 30mm / 1-3/16"), or even made out of titanium or glass, then you need the fine services of our pre-order listing Entanglement plug listing.

We love wearing glass, and have literally been trawling the globe to find a supply of good pyrex eyelets for quite a while. We have now found an excellent supply, and will be offering these in the shop as an option for many of our designs, as well as the usual steel and titanium.

So far we have glass in single flared, sizes 8mm - 19mm (0g - 3/4") but will be getting some double flared and taking the sizes up to 25mm (1") very soon!

Glass plugs can be found here, have a click, have a look :) The ones pictured on the left are Deep Ocean of RGB plugs, these have actually been sold but we do have a batch of B-Grade glass plugs here.

Please contact us at hello (at) lovelyplugly (dot) co (dot) uk if you want some double flared glass or in a size we don't stock, and we'll see what we can do :)

This month's Plugs of the Month are the very lovely Subspace plugs in blue and silver. These have flashes of silver and blue against a translucent blue background and they're bloomin' gorgeous. Photos don't these justice at all -- they tend to look rather two-dimensional in the pics when they have three wonderful dimensions of silver and blue sparkle.

Prices start from £6.49 (£1.50 off per plug) and are available in sizes 8mm up to 30mm. Get some here:

We've been getting a lot of requests lately for our Fruity Jellyfish plugs (pictured right, top), and quite.a lot of them have been requests for no gubbins in the middle. We, of course, obliged :) We've now decided that it's time for them to make their own way in the world, so they've now got their own listing, and have imaginatively been called 'Fruity Jellyfish v2' plugs. They're pictured there on the right, at the bottom.

The Fruity Jellyfish iridescent faux dichroic v2 plugs are available in four mouth-watering flavours (Strawberry, Lemon, Orange and Blueberry), come in sizes 8mm (0g) up to 20mm (>3/4") and can be found in this little spot in our shop:

Fruity Jellyfish v1 iridescent glitter plugs, with the gubbins in the middle, can be found here:

I could have sworn I listed these plugs when we opened lovelyplugly.com, but there was no sign of them! They weren't on the Etsy shop either, what's going on? I mean, there's a blog entry from 2012 here about them and everything. Eh? EH?

Hmmm ... anyway ...

We have triumphantly listed the Orgone Accumulator black holographic glitter plugs. These plugs aren't ridiculously rainbow-like, they're more of a subtle holographic effect against black. Very nice if you don't want to be overwhelmed by colour or sparkle, but want colour and sparkle nonetheless.

Orgone Accumulator plugs are located here (preorder only at the mo, but these are sure to end up as permanent stock), and are available in sizes 4mm (6g) up to 24mm (<1"). We /might/ be able to go up to 30mm on these as well, please contact us (or make a custom request on the product page) and we'll see what we can do :)

We get quite a lot of requests for wedding Entanglement and Subspace plugs, and have decided to add a couple of our favourites to our range (and my plug box).

We'll start off with these Entanglement Cool Crystal plugs (pictured top). These plugs have sparks of flashy blue and teal, pearly blue backs, and have a hint of yellow when backlit.

And these Entanglement Earth Crystal plugs (pictured bottom) have no tint when backlit, have colourful sparks of rainbow, with pearly white backs.

Both of these plugs are in stock in sizes 8mm (0g) up to 20mm (>3/4"), and available for pre-order if you want them with different flares, or up to 24mm (<1") -- please see this listing for the Cool Crystal plugs and this listing for the Earth Crystal plugs.

Blimey, it's been a while since doing blogposting. It's also been a while since we made these plugs -- we used to make these donkey's years ago but we ran out of glowing stuff, couldn't find any /anywhere/ and, so, gently retired them. This was sad, as I wanted a pair when I sized up to 8mm, but it was not to be :'(

Bravely, I moved on.

You may be able to imagine how completely full of yay I was when I found more glowing stuff! Yes! Not only do I get my pair of blue glow-in-the-dark glitter plugs at long last, but there's also a good amount to share as well.

You can now find the lovely blue glow-in-the-dark glitter plugs here (ready now, sizes 6mm - 20mm) but there's also a custom plug listing here, where you can pick which colour plugs you'd like, as well as the usual size and flare options. These custom glitter plugs are available in single flared, double flared and screwback 316L surgical steel (titanium coming very soon), and in sizes 6mm to 24mm.

Get them before we run out of glowing stuff again!

We've caught up with things after the Christmas rush and and are getting into the groove of making new shiny things again, getting the ball rolling with some pink rainbows.

These were based on a custom request made by one of our lovely clients, and they're basically the result of our Alien Skin, Fruity Sherbets and Aurora plugs getting it together in a threesome and somehow producing a baby plug. It's translucent, pink (so very pink) with iridescent flashes of rainbow, and looks gorgeous at all sizes from 6mm (2g) up to 30mm (1-3/16").

We've got a few in stock in the shop here, in 6mm - 20mm single flared, and preorders for larger sizes will be available soon.
