Captive bead jewelry is a popular type of body jewelry that involves a small ball or bead that is held in place by pressure from surrounding metal. This unique design creates a secure connection between the jewelry and the piercing, but it can also make it difficult to change out jewelry pieces. If you are interested in changing your captive bead jewelry, follow these simple steps:
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling any body jewelry.
Use a pair of pliers to gently pull open the captive ring. Be sure to only stretch the ring just enough to remove the bead.
Remove the bead from the ring and set it aside.
Prepare your new jewelry piece by inserting the bead into the ring. Be sure to line up the openings in the ring with the holes in the bead.
Insert the jewelry piece into the piercing by carefully threading it through the hole.
Once the jewelry is in place, use the pliers to gently close the ring. Be sure to press the ends of the ring together securely to prevent the bead from falling out.
It is essential to be gentle when working with captive bead jewelry, as it can be fragile and easily damaged. If you are experiencing difficulty changing your jewelry piece, it is recommended that you seek the assistance of a professional piercing artist.
