I’m always jealous of October babies, because I think they’ve got the best birthstone. I’ve long loved opals for their confetti-like party of colors, their way of shifting and changing with the light, and their overall ethereal beauty.


Dainty, delicate little opal studs by Scosha and WWake are some of my personal favorites for upper lobe piercings. Please join us in the Oakland shop on Saturday, October 14th for a piercing party with master piercer J. Colby Smith – link to book below!
