Fancy wearing someone’s teeth on your fingers, readers? Oh, come on! Around your neck, then? Still no? Well, Australian silversmith Polly van der Glas is giving us the opportunity to just that with her selection of rings and necklaces featuring real human teeth (donated and sterilized), and other items, including pendants and earrings made from human hair.

Well, they’ll certainly be a talking point, won’t they?

    Soooo nauseating. That’s what they are.

    Of course we come here for fug, but this might need a NSFW .. or stomach? Or some disclaimer.

    I like to warn when I post photos of feet. But I’m nuts.

    Knuckleduster with teeth – that’ll make some interesting forensics.

    I can imagine parents bringing their children’s shed milk teeth to be turned into jewellery though – to end up proundly wearing little Phoebe’s first old tooth round their necks…

    I used to work as a dental assistant. I wish I had thought of this first, I was in a veritable gold mine! (Just kidding, that is totally gross!)

    i could see doing this with your own teeth…if you were forced to have your teeth removed and go with dentures you could put your chompers into some rings and necklaces and truthfully be able to tell people you have all your own teeth lol

    The Victorians used to wear hair jewelry as a reminder of an absent loved one (dead or distant), but I understand hair gets dull and ugly pretty fast once it’s not on the head anymore.

    honestly, i guess i should be put in jail. i like a couple of them.:) i think the idea of wearing other peoples teeth is gross too, but if they were fake, why the hell not. i don’t like the first one, but id wear the second two.

    After I got my wisdom teeth out a few years ago, my dentist asked me if I wanted to keep them. I was like, “Um, I guess so” so now I have them in a little box in my bedroom. It would never have occurred to me to put them on a ring and wear them as jewellery though. That is too weird.

    I’m getting my wisdom teeth out on Monday, and I’ve asked the dentist to give me the teeth afterwards, but I’ll hide them in a drawer somewhere – this is just creepy and macarbre!

    I’m thinking of a horror movie, where the teeth belonged to a cannibal killer and they come alive and eat the wearer’s brain–who had it coming for actually wearing zombie teeth jewelry.

    Ok, I’m a dentist, and even I think this is just horrible.

    Unfortunately, it’s not even the first time I’ve seen someone do this. 🙁

    Honestly? I really like them. She’s taken something kind of disgusting and made it beautiful and interesting. I know it’s not for everyone, and it’s rather macabre, but I actually think it’s pretty cool – if it didn’t cost a small fortune, I’d probably wear it. Hey, people wear shark tooth necklaces, it’s not all the different, is it?

    But, hey –

    As I was going to write in the last post before I accidentally hit enter – I also like taxidermy jewelry (lovedtodeath.net has some GORGEOUS pieces) which is probably even more nasty but still beautiful!

    “something kind of disgusting and made it beautiful and interesting”
    Are you nuts?! It’s not beautiful or interesting, it’s just pure disgusting! Somebody’s rotten teeth in your ears… M-mm! “Lovely”!
