I try not to search auction/sale sites for bones and skulls, but sometimes I can't help it. This is how I accidentally came across a listing for 20 mouse jaws.
After a little thought/experimentation, I landed on pre-wrapped wire coils as a mounting method. I glued each jaw carefully, with gel cyanoacrylate.
Once they were all glued in, including any loose teeth, I attached all of them to a short length of chain, as a fall. To give the fall some visual and literal weight, I added a faceted black beaded ball which I strung on an eye pin with a metal teardrop at the bottom. That whole assembly was then attached to a silver chain, which was decorated with deep red faceted oblong glass beads, which are effectively black under most lighting. I hung the fall off-center for a little added interest.
This is a piece that has to be worn with a certain type of top. In this case, a black knit with snap-front. The chain itself is simple enough to wear with a collared shirt; it's the centerpiece that needs a frame of its own. It never fails to draw a lot of commentary when I wear it, usually including variations on, "Really? REAL mousejaws??"
Of course! Only authentics for me!A slightly wordier version of this post also appears on my website: http://www.shefightslikeagirl.com/2013/11/mouse-jawbone-necklace.html
