Keepsake Jewellery for Teeth

 Not a question that gets asked every day, but I have been asked this many times "can you preserve teeth for me into jewellery?". These are often a collection of baby teeth saved from a child, a puppy tooth, or even the teeth kept from a family member or loved one. I have set the teeth within resin keepsake jewellery, forming pendants, keyrings and even paperweights. 

This is an example of a puppy tooth, preserved within a resin heart and attached to a keyring.

This is an example of a collection of teeth that have been saved over a period of many years and preserved within a resin paperweight.

And finally, a large dog canine tooth set within a keyring and personalised with the dog's name.

So, this article has led me to think about what is the largest tooth ever discovered? Did you know that scientists have discovered woolly mammoth teeth as old as 1.2 million years old! These teeth were so well preserved, due to them being buried underneath the Siberian permafrost, that the scientists were able to extract DNA from the teeth. Making this the oldest DNA in existence!

I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my collection of items that I have made from teeth.
