About High Pass Body Jewelry

Enhance Natural Style
Embrace Raw Energy
Restore Effortless Comfort

Roots

Nestled in Grass Valley, California, in a small self-sustaining yurt you’ll find Karen Marie Lane hammering away in her studio at High Pass Body Jewelry.  This small woman-owned business was born in 2018 after creating unique and lasting body jewelry for her own piercings. A severe back injury and resulting resignation from an hourly wage job gave rise to share her customized designs online.  At High Pass Body Jewelry you’ll find authentic handmade custom body jewelry designed for initial and healed body piercings, with materials approved by the Association of Professional Piercers (APP).  Focusing on precision crafted jewelry, you’ll be proud and in awe to wear these beautiful and long-lasting pieces. Not to mention all the compliments you’ll receive!

Products

Discover innovative new favorites for belly rings, pierced nipple jewelry, un-pierced nipple rings, nose and septum rings, studs, cartilage jewelry for lobes, tragus, helix, scapha, conch, orbital, daith, industrial, rook, hood, and replacement pieces. You can also find a variety of jewelry if you don't have piercings, such as stainless steel jewelry like earrings, necklaces, rings, and anklets, ear and nose cuffs, body chains, toe rings, belly chains, and more.  Most designs come with a huge array of customizing options beyond standard sizes in order to fit you perfectly!  If you ever need something that isn't listed, send me a message and I'll see what I can do to customize your jewelry even more.

Styles

This is a perfect shop for a variety of styles in minimalist, boho chic, healing crystals, deco & nouveau, and artisan among others. I love making intriguing and innovative jewelry. You will also enjoy simple pieces useful in complimenting piercings you already have. Most of all, I bring you an ease of mind that you are getting the best for all your time and effort finding that perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.  Being in a constant state of creation, so be sure to check back regularly and see what's new!

 

Method

One of the many perks about High Pass Body Jewelry is my extensive knowledge about metals and stones to help those with sensitivities, allergies, and holistic desires. I strive to reduce waste as much as possible.  Many of my methods eliminate use of hazardous chemicals.  Eco-friendly packaging and earth conscious habits, utilizing recycled gold and silver, and bicycling transportation to deliver eagerly anticipated orders every day help minimize my impact on the environment. There is nothing quite like waking up each day fulfilling my passion and creativity.  I meet each customer's needs in every design for something fashionable, durable, and wearable. Making you feel and look dynamite is my #1 goal!

Alterations

Some jewelry in my shop is available for alterations after purchasing and delivery. Most of the time this will only include downsizing solid gold pieces, seamless bars, and other select pieces. If you feel that you do not have a perfect fit, please send me a message and I will review your order to see if your jewelry qualifies. There may be an alteration cost and shipping costs you would need to pay out of pocket to send the jewelry back to my studio, alteration fee for me to make changes, and then shipping costs to mail it back to you.
