My friend, John, has recently had his wisdom teeth extracted from his mouth. He's asked me to make some neato jewelry from them.

There's one problem. See, John is a dude. Dudes don't normally wear girl jewelry. Therein lies my predicament!

Does anyone have any idea for how I'm supposed to make uber-cool wisdom tooth jewelry for a guy?

Have you ever seen wire wrapped shark teeth necklaces in gift shops?
You could wrap wire around the wisdom teeth or just one and string them on a simple black cord. At least all of the "manly" necklaces I've seen are very simple and contain dark colors.

That what I was thinking before. I want to put some beads somewhere too, but I want to stay the course of it not being too crafty.

I think there are 2 main options for men's jewellery, Industrial or natural. So either simple chunky metal beads or go for a few wooden, coconut shell or gemstone beads. When choosing gemstones for men go for earth tones, nothing bright.  Smiley

Cotton, or leather cords work great for a natural look and black rubber cording is great with the industrial look.
