After a really long wait and a couple of messages I got my plugs, and they were inordinately wide. I messaged them and they kindly offered to exchange them for a custom width which I sent them. I had to message them repeatedly to get updates on the replacement and even then they didn't sent the plugs out until two weeks after saying they'd be out in less than a week. Over 46 days from my original purchase (conveniently you have only have 45 days to open paypal claim) I finally get them... and they're smaller than the width I sent them. So small they pop out of my ears. The design was also super faint on both pairs. I really never get myself anything so blowing $50 for unwearable plugs is a major disappointment.

Transforming a dull board into a bright canvas always excites me! This photo shows 3 phases of preparation; raw board (left), milled thin cut slices (center), and sanded and waxed ready for engraving (right). Will come to life as jewelry this afternoon!

An awesome photo of our Honeycomb Cutout Plugs, thanks to @kelleighyie !
One of my favorite things about this 'job' is exposing the hidden beauty of wood. Cutting into a raw hunk of tree to find brilliant colors and grain patterns excites me every time. In this picture, you can see the first glimpse of Pink Ivory.

About

Like a Snowball in a Snowstorm

After years of working primarily with fused glass, my creative efforts began to wander in early 2011.

I began making wood jewelry and gifts, which led to the launch of my line of sustainable wooden jewelry in August 2011. I added a few pieces to my dormant etsy store in the months to follow, leading to my first etsy sale on November 21, 2011.

Soon after, I introduced my line of exotic wooden plugs, and began listing gift items that I had created for the event vending I had done the previous summer. The more I added to my shop, the bigger reaction I received. A few oddball items began to draw attention (thanks, regretsy :) and the rest is history.

I've been working super hard to build my business, and I appreciate the help of my etsy customers very much. Lots hard work over many long days is beginning to pay off; I look forward to expanding before long, to offer more options with even quicker turnaround.

It is a great time to be a part of the handmade movement.

Frequently asked questions

I ordered the wrong size plugs. Can I exchange them?

We can help with exchanges of UNWORN jewelry only. If the plugs/earrings have not been tried on (never touched an ear at all) and you contact us within seven days of delivery, we can help you get the correct size. For health/hygiene reasons, we can not accept exchanges or returns of jewelry that has made contact with an ear.

Due to high international shipping costs, buyer will be responsible for all postage for returns and exchanges.

Are your plugs/earrings sold in pairs?

Yes, all ear related items are sold in PAIRS. If you select a qty of 1, you will receive two pieces, one for each ear.

(If you only want one, you may contact us to arrange for the sale of a single, however we find that most people want two, so all of our listings are for PAIRS)
