I have just arrived home and am so proud to finally post picture of my new yellow gold and diamond set from BVLA, I couldn’t be happier with my vision made into reality!
Make all the jewelry!!! 😈 #thestonedemuhn
I am excited to be participating in my first jewelry innovator competition at the Association of Professional Piercers conference in Las Vegas next week. My submission for the technical innovation category is this “White Eagle” labret in hand-carved solid porcelain with gold and Guatemalan blue jadeite eyes utilizing my new stone-in-stone hardware setting.
To my knowledge there is no one else doing stone-in-stone hardware settings (in any form, plugs or otherwise) in the body modification industry. About two years ago I developed a method for hardware settings in labrets that, although functional and safe, was not a perfect solution due to having to drill through the entire piece and cap off the back.
This project represents a working prototype of a method of hardware settings in stone that requires no drill through, meaning there is no exit hole anywhere on the piece for these settings. They are completely self-contained, can be placed at any angle, and obviously multiple settings per piece can be achieved.
Seeing this in person, holy heck! So amazing
