Trumpet flared tunnels carved from Argentine Lignum Vitae. This brown toned Central American wood frequently shows streaks of vibrant gold or green, sometimes with chatoyancy (light play) similar to tiger's eye stone.

"Trumpet" flared means that the front flare is considerably larger than the saddle while the rear flare remains a standard flare size. This creates a great visual effect of a large face on the jewelry. The style itself is a traditional style of making plugs throughout several cultures, including not only those of clay and jadeite/green stones in Mesoamerica, but also some silver work of Southeast Asian cultures.
Our standard Trumpet flare for made-to-order pieces is a front flare 6mm larger than the saddle, and this pertains to all sizes. This means the flare is proportionally larger on smaller sizes than on larger sizes. If you prefer different sizing, please let us know when you place your order.


We are very specific about the woods we use for our body jewelry, and only use woods that are known to be safe for wear in stretched body piercings. In the rare instance your body has an adverse reaction to organic wood jewelry please discontinue wearing the jewelry. And please, do not use wood jewelry to stretch your piercings.

Shipping & Returns

Each piece of jewelry is made to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for jewelry to ship. Our jewelry arrives sealed in plastic, and we are unable to accept returns if the jewelry has been removed from that plastic.Please examine your jewelry carefully before removal.


We list our jewelry sizes in milimeters first then in fractions of inches. Because the metric to imperial conversion isn't perfect we will round up or down to the closest milimeter. If you would like to order in half milimeters please add that to our notes section at checkout. Our wearable lengths increase as the diameter of the jewelry increases. Our shop has a standard wearable length of each size that we have found works for most people. If you would like a custom wearable length please include that in our notes section at checkout. Wearable lengths are not the same as the total length of the jewelry.

Care Instructions

All of our jewelry is polished and sealed with a hard carnuba wax. Even so, wood is a porous organic material and can be damaged by water. Please do not allow your jewelry to get wet as it will damamge the finish and possibly raise the grain of the wood.

As wood jewelry is worn it will age, often that can be seen in the darkening or color shifting of jewelry. We recommend periodically wiping down your jewelry with a dry microfiber cloth. As you wear your jewelry it can also lose some of its luster. Buffing your jewelry is a good option to maintain its shine, as is oiling it from time to time with an appropriate skin safe oil (we recommend vitamin E oil)
