If you’re looking to break it to the parents that you’ve been hiding an obscure body piercing that you got back in college, when you may or may not have been under the influence of some choice substances, you might as well do it with style, right? Scylla Jewelry crafts masterpieces to adorn whatever body parts you decided to poke a hole through, sober or not. Piercer and overall jewelry magician Micah Greenlay teamed up with Heather Garry of Corsetiere a few years ago to open a joint storefront on Ashland for Chicago custom corsets and jewelry. They’ve built a loyal following with their intricate handiwork. Since a majority of the jewelry is crafted in-studio under Greenlay’s direction, clients can help map out their creation down to the finest details. From septum shields to custom rings, Scylla creates jewelry for nearly any piercing, however adventurous. The price tag is steep, but when it comes to one-of-a-kind jewelry of this quality, it’s worth its weight in gold.
