Our new dealings with the Metal Mafia

We have a new business connection in NYC and they have convinced us to start a new line of body jewellery. It is very small for the moment and pieces are handpicked. So here we are, eagerly awaiting to take delivery of our shipment from Metal Mafia, NYC. Rock'n'Rouge will be one of the very first UK shops to carry a brand new type of microdermal jewellery, and it is a very clever little piece as well. They are magnetic dangles. When I saw them, I wondered how they worked because microdermal anchors aren't magnetic. But our lovely Metal Mafia contact quickly shed some light on the md dangles situation. The dangles consist of a magnetic head, which screws into your microdermal anchor, and the jewellery itself attaches to the head. It always hangs the right way down and should it get caught and pulled, it will simply come off and leave your piercing untouched.

We have selected a few pieces for you. Here's a sneak preview:

Anchor dangle with clear stone
Angel Wings with clear stone

Heart shaped lock
Cherries in red and pink

Small skull and crossbones

Sparrow and clear stone

Colourful cupcake dangle

Depending on the popularity of the dangles we might also introduce the magnetic microdermal tops which makes changing tops really quick and easy. No need to unscrew and change, simply swap the tops. The other advantage those new magnetic tops have is to preserve the tread inside the post. 

We also have some dangly belly bars coming, also from Metal Mafia, so here's a taste of what's going to be available soon.

Fang Banger belly ring. Ideal for the True Blood devotee.

A moustache for your belly! 

More will come soon, and will be added to the shop! Otherwise, come and pick them up in person at the London Tattoo Convention next weekend, we will be there waiting for you!

September and the things that it brings

Seeing as I was born in September, I got accustomed to getting new things and surprises just around this time of year. So here, I am sharing this tradition and letting the September autumnal winds sweep some new pretties in. This month brings us a brand new line of jewellery by Luna which includes a massive triple owl totem in antique brass, a pretty bumble bee and a sweet vintage camera in brass and enamel.

Pretty Bumble Bee by Luna

Vintage Camera Necklace by Luna
So many other items have appeared on the site this week, you must have a look. More shiny things by Double Dice, including some massive skulls, some items have made a return, like the bold Drama Queen necklace and the divine Victorian Swallow necklace and adjustable ring. We are beginning to stock more adjustable rings so keep an eye out, you might see something you can't live without!
