Jewelry You Can Sink Your Teeth Into

Silversmith and offbeat artist Polly van der Glas creates jewelry made from human teeth, hair, and sterling silver.  Aside from rings, she also makes necklaces, earrings, purses and more.
All works are handmade in Melbourne, with sterling silver, human hair and human teeth. Human teeth are locally donated and sterilised, and human hair is either locally donated or sourced from India and China.

Teeth are particularly difficult to come by, so any donations are gratefully accepted.

When I got my wisdom teeth removed, I was walked from the dental office dazed and sore, packed with cotton in my mouth. The nurse handed me a cup and I looked at her, confused.

She said "Those are your teeth, honey."

I looked down and they were twisted, still bloody and one of them had been sheared in half to make removal easier.

I wanted to throw up.

The last thing I could imagine would be making it into jewellery.

This is actually a very common practice in Costa Rica, where I'm from. When little girls lose their baby teeth some parents will have them set into a pair of earrings that the child will usually wear into adolescence.
