I recently had to endure the agony of a rogue wisdom tooth coming in to my mouth. I had the other three removed nine years ago, but the fourth just now decided to make an appearance. Not fun and quite painful. Anyway, after I had it removed, they sent the tooth home with me. Which gave me an idea: turn that evil tooth into something cool!
I got the idea for a necklace. I knew I wanted to make it glittery--I've been really into glitter lately.
I coated the tooth in Mod Podge and then dipped it in glitter. After it was dry, I sealed it with another coat of Mod Podge.
At this point, I wasn't sure of how to turn it into jewelery. I tried wrapping wire around it, but it looked tacky. I decided to try resin; I had been wanting to try it out for awhile, anyway. I bought a resin starter kit and followed the directions. Pretty simple, just takes a lot of patience waiting it out while it dries!
The starter kit I bought came with a small drill, which I used to make a small hole to put jewelery hardware through. I added some cord, and done!
I'm very pleased with the result. It's so strange that that thing was still in my mouth about a month ago
