Like wearing hoop earrings but can't find a pair that dangle well with your eyelets? Give our hoops for tunnels / eyelets a go!

These silver-plated babies fit in tunnels / eyelets starting from 5mm / 4g, and are flexible enough to get in and out easily, yet they stay in like good little hoops :)

We make these as plain hoops, or you can give them a bit of oomph with semi-precious gemstones. We've got a wide range of gemstones to choose from as well, including jaspers, quartzes, agates, labradorite, onyx, obsidian, flourite, and more!

We also take custom requests for these, so please contact us if there's something different that you'd like hanging from your ears.

You can get our hoops for tunnels / eyelets from our shop or our lovely Etsy shop, with prices starting from £3.49 per hoop.

You may remember last year that we started stocking ready-made polymer clay ear weights / hangies made by our very own Mrs Boot. These did so well that we've started doing preorders on a whole, wide range of different shaped and sized weights / hangies.

You may be wondering, "how on earth do I get these in?" Well, they're bendy for easy in-and-outability, yet manage to retain their shape at the same time, so there's no worries there. Since they're made of a combo of polymer clay and polyurethane, we strongly recommend that these are worn only through tunnels, as the materials aren't great for your ears.

We offer these in a good range of metallic, glittery colours: silver, gold, copper, rose, cerise, purple, blue, teal, green and rainbow faux anodised, as well as good old black satin. We can do more non-metallic colours on these as well (quite fancy a white pair, myself), so please contact us if you fancy something different.

These fit tunnels / eyelets sized 10mm / 00g and over, but if you want them to fit 8mm / 0g THIN tunnels, then please drop us a line and we'll sort you out a special order.

Let's have a closer look at each individual species.

Dangly plugs are great, but wouldn't it be nice if you could take the dangles off and pop them on your favourite single-flared or screwback plugs? Well, we've made this possible with Plug Pendants. Simply get your plug or tunnel, slide on the Plug Pendant and put in your ear -- it's as simple as that.

See top right for a picture of the Bird in Hoop Plug Pendants worn with an Aurora Borealis Blue plug.

Plug Pendants have a 316L surgical steel base, so they won't make your ear go funny, and have low-nickel dangly components. You can get them in sizes 8mm / 0g - 20mm / >3/4" and they'll happily fit on most single-flared and screwback plugs (we've tested them on a lot of different plugs with no problems, but can't absolutely, positively guarantee they'll fit on your plugs as some plugs may run a bit big).

You can find Plug Pendants in the Dangly department at Lovely Plugly, or you can get them from the Lovely Plugly Etsy Shop.

Wow, it's been a busy couple of months, so busy that we've not had time to write about our new products yet! Let's get started with these Fauxpal plugs ...

Now, we've been playing about with these for years but despite our best efforts, we could never get them as 'opally' as we'd like.

Until now.

Fauxpal faux opal plugs have a white base with flashes of blue, green and orange. They're available at http://www.lovelyplugly.com, and you can get them in sizes 8mm / 0g up to 25mm / 1" in 316L surgical steel, titanium and glass.

At some point we'll be doing these in different colours (blue, pink, green), so if you fancy any in these colours now then please get in touch and we'll see what we can do :) We're also working on getting these looking super as tunnels as well, again, get in touch if you fancy an opally tunnel or two.

Tunnels! (Or eyelets or stretchers or gauges.) They're fab on their own or with a nice pair of earrings clanking away through them, and they're also now available at lovelyplugly.com \o/

Right now we're making these in 10mm / 00g up to 25mm / 1" in 316L economy steel only, but we should be able to get these babies down to 8mm soon. Maybe we do more materials too, we shall see.

We've already got a few species up for preorder, with more coming along soon, but, in the meantime, if you see a plug that you'd like as a tunnel then please make a custom request and we'll make you pretties for your ears.

Hello there, have you met our new 1977 lava lamp style plugs yet? We've been playing around with various forms of these for a while, and the ones here are by far the favourites.

Unfortunately, these ones don't have the moving blobs of lava (those particular ones had a shelf-life so were abandoned, shame) but they still look fantastically colourful and lava-lamp like. They look particularly wonderful when they have a bit of backlight, the translucent colour lights up, making the blobs of lava stand out all proud and out there.

You can get our groovy 1977 lava lamp style plugs in sizes 10mm (00g) up to 25mm (1"), and they come in a range of colours and materials (316L surgical steel, titanium and pyrex glass), just take your pick :)

We've been busy bees for a while and haven't had much time to make new shiny things :( However, time was on our side this week (as well as some accidental inspiration) and we've made something new.

Hurray!

Introducting our new Raindrop Blue Yellow Clear faux dichro flash plugs. These plugs are transparent with stonking flashes of blue that wave about on the surface when you move your head about. Marvelous. They've got a bit of a sunny yellow tinge to them when looked at straight on, but show up as clear with blue flashes at all other angles.

Do like these, have been wearing these the past few days, despite the fact that I'm meant to be stress-testing some new tunnels (which are also very nice BTW).

Sizes available:
6mm 8mm 10mm 1mm 12mm 13mm 14mm 16mm 18mm 19mm 20mm 22mm 24mm 25mm

Materials:
Pick between our standard 316L surgical steel, titanium or pyrex glass.

Flares: Single flared (316L, titanium, glass) or double flared (316L or glass).
