I turn plugz for people that stretch their ears because wood plugz don’t irritate their ears like that of the plastics,metals and rubber ones

Gee, they are very nice, but what are they for and what do they do?

People(?) put them in their earlobes and noses sort of like the Ubangi’s put in their ips to stretch them out.

Boy, cocobolo would really work wond-ears

Thanks Sawdust…I wonder if they make something to contract parts? of your body instead of stretching?

Very nice. And when they’re not stretching ear lobes they can be used to hold napkins at a place setting (sorry Diablo but I’m probably a couple of years older than you ;-) Great work!

Nice workmanship, don’t think I want to order any though. I guess it’s like they used to say “different strokes for different folks”.

Chip, I laughed out loud. Clearly we both are from a different generation or background than the typical plugz clientele.

They do look nice, and that they are hypo-allergenic is great. My young lady has metal allergies and sometimes finding jewelery can be a hassle.

So Diablo, just how big are these things? Can you post a pic with a ruler. Morbid curiosity I guess :)

Cool, it never ceases to amaze me the things that are made of wood, Diablo. It looks like some of them are made of exotic wood. How are they treated to counter the possible toxic effect of the wood?

I have to laugh too! I’m older and imagine the holes getting big enough to set a wee little swing seat in it and a little mouse sitting on it going for a ride, like the old diorama! Now that would be a conversation starter! Just a matter of time!
Nice work! Suzanne
