Custom belly rings and body jewelry.

I started out on ebay selling basic body jewelry and specializing in customization. I created my first web site in 2002. I sold regular jewelry and all kinds of body jewelry with customized combinations. I am now excited to offer custom lengths in popular styles. (Yes, I welcome requests!)

Back 15+ years ago when I was reselling regular body jewelry there were no super flexible cut to fit, threaded end options for pregnancy, but a couple materials were becoming popular for tongue rings, so I sold bioplast tongue bars with different odds and ends to finish them off. Then an imaging studio contacted me to see if I could find a way to make longer options, and that set the stage for Maternity Piercings. I was featured in Fit Pregnancy magazine. Then because of the cut to fit design, flexible bars became great options to wear during workouts for sports, and after weight gain, etc. And then of course, China and most other body jewelry suppliers started copying and carrying them.

So now I have decided to focus on custom length belly rings. There are so many issues with piercings not being exactly the size of belly rings, either the jewelry has too much bar showing, or in a lot of cases it pinches, and for many being too tight can mean infection.

Welcome to my shop! :)

I am the original inventor/manufacturer of cut-to-fit flexible belly rings, Yes, they are everywhere now!! But I still think mine are best...of course! With 15+ years of changing suppliers, styles, and methods, I think that makes a huge difference in quality. My super comfy Ultraflex bars are able to be cut to fit simply with clean scissors to whatever length you prefer. One inch is over twice as long as a standard steel bar, and mine are a little over an inch. You won't need longer, even for pregnancy, but I can make them whatever length you need.

I also make custom steel bar belly rings. Lengths from tiny 1/4" to XXXLong 1". Most people who think they need the longest size only need one or two sizes longer. Contact me for questions about length. I also have sizing sets available if you want to try different lengths.

Flat rate shipping. Pay shipping for just one, no matter how many you order. :) Free shipping is available based on order size. See details in listing.

Body jewelry is considered an "intimate item", so if they are returned, I have to destroy then, even if you swear they haven't been worn. This is why there is generally a 50% restocking fee for returns. I don't want to take a chance that someone else actually did wear it and it was resold to you. So please....be very very careful when choosing a size, and let me help you if you're not sure.

Body jewelry is an intimate item. I must dispose of any returns, even if the customer swears they never used it. Because of this I don't accept returns. As stated in each item description, please be very careful about choosing the right size. If you've already bought the wrong size, contact me to see if there might be other options. For example, I have sizing kits that have replacement bars that will fit on some items.
If the item is damaged, but still stapled and packaged in the outer and inner clear bags, please take a picture of the damage, and send us details.
Damage after opening is too often attributed to using alcohol or other cleaning ingredients (including many soaps) that can crack acrylics and strip coatings.

Paypal or Etsy payments are preferred payment.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Standard belly rings are 10-11mm. If your belly ring is too long, then 6-8mm is your size. If your belly rings is too short, please DO NOT automatically buy the longest size. I am having to remove longer sizes based on people not being able to use them.

If your belly ring is just a tiny bit snug, then a 12mm might be all you need. If the regular size is tight, then I suggest a 14mm. If you maybe gained some weight and now need to pinch a little to get it on, then a 16mm should give you all the room you need. The 19mm is available for special piercings or very deep piercings. I have sizes that are longer, but I generally don't list them. I would suggest trying a flexible cut to fit bar if you think you need 19mm or longer.

Care instructions

Please do not use products containing alcohol to sanitize your body jewelry, especially acrylic, clay, natural materials, and coated or painted products. It will crack acrylics, and can ruin other surfaces. A warm soapy water rinse is all you need. If you use alcohol containing products on your piercing area, make sure they are completely dry, and product on skin will not come in contact with the end parts.

Resizing Flexible Bars

Flexible bars can be cut at a 45 degree angle, and the ball will thread back on. If you have a steel ball, they work the easiest to set threads, but the top ball of whatever you selected should be fine. It is suggested to cut a bit longer then you think you need....but also I suggested not leaving too much of the bar exposed, as it will slide back and forth, picking up dust and fibers that can cause irritation or infection.

This is particularly important if pregnant, as the belly expands it can cause micro ruptures inside the piercing, and cause an infection where there was never an issue before. Keep the area clean and dry. See Care Instructions to prevent breakage of jewelry due to alcohol.
