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 ;)
First off, I must apologize for missing last Saturday!! Because it was Memorial Day weekend and I had a few extra days to myself, I lost track of time as well as the days of the week!!!
Second, congratulations are in order for A! This past week she accomplished a huge life milestone and I know I speak for all of us when I say we wish her all the best in her future endeavors and look forward to seeing what she does next!
Now, I’ll get down to the meat and bones of my post for today….
Recently I came across an amazing Facebook page that shares everything macabre and beautiful. It’s called “The Macabre and the Beautifully Grotesque”.
They do a wonderful job of constantly updating with interesting photographs and posts from many aspects of every corner of art. From taxidermy to modeling and paintings, their posts will add a new taste to your everyday Facebook browsing!
Here are some of my favorite photographs they have posted:
