Swoon: 2″ Ebony + Patina Steel

51mmebonypatinasteelANDY

What you’re looking at.

51mm (2″) Ebony plugs with steel inlays that have been exposed to environmental factors to create a patina (essentially, rust)

Who made it.

Andy Dunn of Southshore Adornments

Why we love it.

It’s all about the inlays for us, with this pair. Andy is one of the great independent makers in the body jewelry scene (and one of the very few hailing from the UK) that will go out on a limb and try something new. The natural color and texture of the steel patina tickles our fancy and turns what would otherwise be a very nicely made plain pair of Ebony plugs into something fabulous and unique.
