Stack ‘Em If You Got ‘Em!

Maya Jewelry and Diablo Organic jewelry “stacked” to create a fun new combination

Combining great jewelry from both Diablo Organics and Maya Jewelry, our client a really wonderful new hybrid look. While both pieces definitely have similarities, they clearly come from two different origins, design-wise. Either piece is eye-catching on their own, but when you stack them together, something different and very fashion-forward is created.

Lovely!!

This young lady got her original helix piercing at the shop several years ago for her 18th birthday. Courtney added a new one on top with a little clear gem to match- it so simple, but we love this jewelry combination!

Tumblr Question: Forward Helix Jewelry

Hey! What kind of jewelry do you recommend for a forward helix? I got mine pierced (elsewhere, maybe my mistake >.>) and they used a short barbell, so short that the other ball was really uncomfortably resting inside of my ear. I switched it to a longer, curved barbell that I had which has relieved that pain, but it’s not quite the look I’m going for(though I can tuck the bar behind my helix temporarily)… any thoughts?

Most-commonly, we use short, labret-stud style jewelry for forward helix piercings. These are essentially just short barbells with a very small, flat disks on the backside of the jewelry. The flat disk allows a bit more room for the jewelry to sit comfortably in the often-small-and-tight spaces where forward helix piercings go.

Now, that doesn’t mean that a barbell with a small ball couldn’t work, because it could in certain circumstances. And while we don’t usually use curved barbells, we can think of a couple of very specific situations where that style of jewelry might be appropriate for a forward helix piercing.

If you find that the curved barbell is comfortable, and doesn’t move around excessively, you may be able to wear it for the duration of the healing period and t hen switch over to a labret-stud once things have healed up. Or, you could visit a piercer that carries that style of jewelry and discuss the pros and cons of switching the jewelry at this point.
Best of luck!

The Golden Triangle

A while back, Courtney did three earlobe piercings on one of our clients. We really like how unique the layout is, as as well as how simple and understated the three yellow gold beads are.

This is a great example of how a little creativity on the part of the client and the talents of an experienced piercer can come together to create something special out of fairly simple jewelry.

Great work, Courtney!
