The term ‘organic’ refers to a substance or material that once lived and has been fashioned into body jewelry. Such materials such as different types of wood and various animal bones can be found transformed into beautiful ear tunnels and plugs.
Many people prefer the properties of organic materials because they can be considerably lighter in weight than stone or metals. However, keep in mind that organic body jewelry is porous, and more prone to retaining moisture and other oils found in our skin. Although they can be a bit more maintenance, the inherent beauty of finely crafted organic plugs and ear tunnels makes them worth it.
