Organic Body Jewelry: Hot or Not?
There is a lot of things that can be said about body jewelry. History is fraught with references of how body jewelry has been used as a symbol of power, prestige and fortune since time immemorial. Modern body piercing techniques and manufacturing of body piercing jewelry gave way to the staying power and rising popularity of piercing jewelry and accessories today. And one trend that is steadily coming back to the contemporary eyes of enthusiasts is organic piercing jewelry.
Organic jewelry, in the simplest sense, is accessories made from organic stuff like wood, bones, horns, feathers and such that gives a natural feel and uses the unique characteristics of the materials to provide a stylish look. People who have used organic piercing jewelry state that it is one of the most novel and fashionable types of accessory available today.
Because no wood or bone or horn are the same, each organic jewelry is unique and combined with the craftsmanship of designers and manufacturers, consumers have a lot of styles and variety to choose from. One of the most popular organic jewelry are those made of wood because of its flexibility in the manufacturing process and great availability. Wood organic piercing jewelry is also prefered by many consumers due to its lightweight which is great for stretching earlobe and nasal septum piercings. Many manufacturers make organic jewelry from a wide range of wood. As of the moment, bamboo organic piercings are hugely popular (even though technically, bamboo is a type of grass). The benefits of wood jewelry is very obvious in the details of the designs. Usually, the best organic wood jewelry are handmade and these pierces are works of art on their own.
Horns and bones are also popular to many people though legitimate manufacturers caution consumers in buying jewelry made from ivory. Buffalo bones and horns are the most widely used material in making bone and horn jewelry because when polished and treated, these can resemble ivory without the ethical issues.
Proper maintenance of wood, horn and bone jewelry should always be taken into account by users of organic jewelry. Because these materials are usually porous (having natural tiny pores or openings) jewelry made of these things can absord body fluids and excretions like sebum, sweat or blood. This can become a potential breeding ground for bacteria and cause infection. Constant cleaning and maintenance is important for organic jewelry to make sure wearing is safe though many manufacturers are treating their products to minimize the potential of bacterial growth even when people wear them at prolonged periods. Coatings are usually used to seal off pores or prevent dirt and excretions from staying on the jewelry.
If you are consumer who loves unique and one of a kind jewelry, organic body jewelry can be a great option for you. Being handcrafted, most organic jewelry is very high in quality. The variety of styles would also mean that there is something for everyone when it comes to organic jewelry. Retailers can also reap the benefits of organic jewelry as many wholesalers and manufacturers are mass producing these products. And with the rising need for many people to establish their individual identity, being able to offer unique products can be just the thing your business needs.
