Founded in 1999 Oracle Body Jewelry got it’s start as a small one man operation. Our founder Scott Barrs noticed the lack of quality and aesthetics in body jewelry and decided to take matters into his own hands. Constantly perfecting and expanding his knowledge base, he moved into Stone carving and Fine Jewelry creating the Oracle Body Jewelry you see today. We make everything we sell and all of our designs are our own original creations. We DO NOT and WILL NEVER simply purchase our jewelry from someone else or a third party vendor. After almost 20 years in business, we’ve grown up with the industry we love so much and we’ve kept the same values we’ve had from the start. We make fun and beautiful jewelry for fun and beautiful people. We are dedicated to keeping the highest standard of ethics, quality, and happiness and we think that comes through in everything that we do. Thank you for coming along on the ride with us and we hope you have as much fun wearing our jewelry as we have bringing it to you!
Owner and Level 12 Lapidary/Pinball Wizard
The man himself came out swinging from Detroit Rock City! Growing up with a stack of National Geographic magazines that fostered a love of tattoos, piercings, and jewelry, he got his first tattoo when he was 13. After becoming a Professional Piercer at 18 and noticing that there was a need for original high quality jewelry, he started carving jewelry in 1997 and the rest is history. Scott went back to school to further hone his craft and got a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. It’s his eye for design and quality that makes our jewelry what it is and his DIY ethic ensures that everything will be beautiful, functional, fun, and the highest quality possible. Scott is also a fashionista, pinball league champion and repairman, and has a strong love for anything Hello Kitty!
