When a trend becomes more of a fashion staple, like belly button rings, there is often a parade of new ideas and new fashion styles that come to the market. Some of these ideas are embraced by large companies while others are born and bred in small towns across the nation. This smaller sector and their designs can often be found at local festivals. They gain popularity through word of mouth or social word of mouth on networks such as Facebook.
newscalibre asked a group of belly button rings enthusiasts what they would like to see in the future when they looked at body jewelry for their stomach. We were surprised and inspired by some of their ideas.
One of the most innovative suggestions was to make the belly rings out of recycled materials. Of course the part of the belly button rings which come in contact with skin would still require a type of flesh friendly material but the portion for the design could be the skies limit. Recycled glass was a popular suggestion.
One dancing diva suggested that miniature disco balls which included the ability to twirl and light up would be a fun set of belly button rings to have. The idea of adding a small battery and lights to various designs seems to be an idea that has a lot of enthusiasm.
One fashion conscious girl wanted all of her body jewelry to match. But she wasn't suggesting that they simply have a similar design. Instead, she wanted them to tell a story much in the same way that a charm bracelet tells a story. The earrings may be made of her birthstone; the belly button rings may be in the colors of her alma mater; the toe ring may be made of a material from where she met her true love...you get the idea. A journey of life through body jewelry.
If you were designing the next type of belly button rings what would you want to see? From the materials used to the themes expressed many artistic and fashionable people are experimenting with the next big thing.
