Jewelry Watch

So, my favorite body jewelry site on the planet is Body Art Forms. The prices are amazing  and so is the selection. Quality too. They've got a sale on Maya jewelry till 5/19 with the code MAYA513 (I wonder if I'm breaking a rule by posting the coupon code...)

I've had my eye on this collection forever. A bit pricy ($80-120), but with the discount.... these are all bone or shell or horn (sorry vegans) + either gold-plated sterling sliver or sterling silver. They're 18g... so for normal ear piercings. They're so beautiful I just want to weep.

no need to link, they're gone. shell and 22k gold-plated sliver. so pretty... :'(

Sigh. So pretty. But a few things about these kind of give me pause. For one thing, gold is really irritating to a lot of people's skin (including mine). Silver tarnishes. I would recommend the gold though, since bone tends to go from white to ivory with age (see my bone jewelry below, about 7 years old). The other thing that's giving me pause is that, as you can see, my holes are too large for normal earrings. These are at a 18g, while mine are at a 4g (and 8g).

Ah decisions, decisions.
