The Increasing Demand of Handmade Jewelry among Men and Women

By Body Touch Subscribe to RSS | March 23rd 2012 | Views:

Handmade jewelry is extremely popular even in this generation of technological advancement and use of powerful machines. Basically, it is the jewelry made with the use of hands, solely and not with the help of the machines. These kinds of jewelry can only be called so if they are done by the hand or under the guidance of the hand, even if certain, specific equipments like drills, lathes, etc are used. Punch presses, CNC machinery and casting amongst many others cannot be used to make such jewelry as they would not qualify as tools worked under the guidance of the hand.

On the other hand, a flesh tunnel is also a type of jewelry that is pierced into the human flesh and worn by both men and women but primarily by women. Its origin goes back in history; thousands of years into the ancient civilisations spread the entire world and was popular amongst all cultures. To be precise, they mainly come from the age-old cultures and tribal from Myanmar, Africa and other native tribes. Their size, colour and material used; define their origin. Earlier this jewelry had a function, that is, they were worn by both the sexes and were used to identify individuals of ranks. It was used to differentiate between people of importance in the society but now they are merely a fashion statement which of course is a prime reason for our generation. As a matter of fact, they have synonyms and are also called spool, fleshy, ear let, expander or eyelet.

The flesh tunnel is made out of various materials like titanium, surgical steel, silicone, Pyrex glass and acrylic plastic. Also they are available in a variety of natural materials like horn, bone, bamboo, amber, wood and stone, all of which are very common, but in this age, people prefer the more sophisticated ones with expensive stones and crafted beautification of the same. These have grooves and flares to hold the tiny stones as they might fall out of their place over time and repeated use. The facility of threaded backings holds them in their place, that is, it might come out of the pierced hole and fall off. Most commonly, these are worn in the earlobes which have softer tissues but other places to wear them are on the nose and the nipples.

The handmade jewelry market has always been in demand as human creativity has no limit and people do value that. Just like paintings are sold at humungous prices, such is the demand for this type of jewelry. Sometimes people are worried if the piercings made in earlobes heal or not and are often anxious about catching bacteria because of the piercing. The average length of a gauge would be 3.2 mm and the application of different oils whilst cleaning would prevent one from catching infections.
