Ear & Body Piercing/Short eyebrow piercing


Hi Brian,
I had my eyebrow pierced about 4 1/2 years ago. I took care of the piercing when it was new and didn't have any major problems with the healing process except that the jewelry did seem to migrate forward a little leaving a pretty small space between the two ends. Since it has been healed, I've been wearing 1/4" 16 gauge curved barbells. The 1/4" is very comfortable for me and fits the piercing perfectly. I actually like the look of the rather small piercing. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to find jewelry in this size except from a very limited number of websites and some shops but the selection is not great. I'm curious about why this size seems to be so uncommon. Also, if you have any suggestions about where I can get new jewelry please let me know. Thanks!

There should be close to an equal amount of threaded and threadless decorative ends available from companies sold by my colleagues at

The bonus is that they can have almost anything made by any of the companies they deal with.
