tooth


This is my wisdom tooth. The first tooth I've had pulled out and here it is ready to go in 9k gold. After paying for the tooth to be removed, and a root canal I couldn't afford anything nicer than 9k. I don't think this an art, it's just a thing a did because I wanted to wear it and I like it like a talisman and a success and a solidity.

I made a mold of the tooth, so this is a solid little gold thing for the surface detail and I still have the tooth bone in a box with an opal chip and maybe I'll do something with that.

Oh. Maybe I'll be able to afford a fine gold chain at some point, but this was all excessive at the time and I plaited that nylon string just fine.
