This niobium hoop features a silver skull captive bead design that measures approximately 4mm (wide) x 4.5mm (tall). This is the tiny version of the design.
Choose between a horizontal bead or a vertical bead. Vertical beads work well for nostril and tragus piercings. Horizontal beads work well for conch, helix, daith and septum piercings. Make sure you consider the size of the design and if it will fit in your desired location!
The skull bead design will take up approximately 1.5mm of the inner diameter when worn as septum jewelry.
Each bead is carefully antiqued and then given a hand-brushed finish to highlight the blackened details.
Completely nickel-free! The hoop is made out of type-2 commercially pure niobium, and the bead is made out of Argentium silver.The hoop pictured is untreated niobium. The black niobium option is given a heat treatment to darken the color, it is still pure niobium - it will come with a satin finish.
All of my hoops have completely smooth ends for comfortable and safe insertion.
