Toothsome Jewelry

After the tooth fairy has visited don't toss your children's baby teeth - turn them into something beautiful!  When Queen Victoria's daughter lost her first milk tooth her husband, prince Albert had the tooth made into a special brooch with the tooth forming the blossom of a thistle, the symbolic wildflower of Scotland.

If you have lots of children a necklace of their molars would be a conversation starter at your next cocktail party.

Actress Susan Sarandon crafted the bracelet (below) from the pearly whites of her three children.
