Two of my biggest obsessions in life are jewelry and the slightly macabre. I’ve seen many pieces of taxidermy and bone jewelry, but my absolute favorite has to be human tooth jewelry. There is just something even more creepy about wearing human bone…maybe even more in that it’s a bone we see every day.
The fact that we do see teeth everyday lends itself to become somewhat boring. It is ashame because teeth are probably some of the most ornate bones we have…which begs the question, why not make them into jewelry?!?
I’ve seen pieces tastefully done, and others not so tastefully (no pun intended)…i guess a lot of it lies in the final presentation. Simply stringing a tooth can look to “sharktooth-ish” or it might have the perfect simplistic look. It’s tryly touch and run.
Nonetheless, tooth jewelry is absolutely wonderful and can be worn anytime. It reminds me of ivory in its color and texture (probably because they’re both bone =P). Anyhow, you should try this trend…we all already are rocking it in some way ;)
