Jewellers are basically dentists 🦷

In-studio chat this week about polishing tools reminded me of how the majority of people I met in Jewellery class many moons ago were DENTISTS! They already had most of the tools and made jewellery as a hobby. How wild?

Many people believe that jewellery made of teeth is a new thing. However...

It was practiced in the Victorian era by Queen Victoria herself! When her daughter, Princess Victoria lost her first tooth, the queen had Victoria’s tooth placed in a broach. The broach is now on display at an exhibition in Buckingham Palace.

We love teeth at Serpent & the Swan and would love to see your great big pointy ones. Send in your wisdom teeth, kid’s teeth, dog’s teeth... 

Just wrap it in tissue in a little ziplock bag in a standard envelope to the address:

Serpent & the Swan, Studio 14, 43-53 Bridge Road, Stanmore NSW 2048 and head to our website for your custom details!
