Okay, so I couldn’t wait for the weekend. Here they are … my wisdom teeth earrings. The small ones are my top teeth, the large ones are my bottom. Cleaned for a week in bleach, then wrapped cotton around them and stuck a jump ring and hook into it.
The bottom ones came through first, followed six months later by my top ones. I was 16, and the tops were so sharp, they dug into the gum still partly covering my bottoms. I had the tops out first, six months before my 18th bday. And six months later, I had the bottoms out. They were the worst, killed me with pain, and gave me fat lips. (I do not do well looking like Mick Jagger) Ten panadol didn’t work but two anti-inflammatories did. It was one week before my 18th bday and I had to mash bananas and hot chips with a fork and suck them down, and sip soup through a straw because I couldn’t move my jaw.
I had told the nurse the first time that I was into making jewellery and said I’d turn them into earrings. Two weeks later when I went back for a check up, I was wearing them.
The dickhead dentist demanded – ”you did clean them didn’t you?”
Well …. DUH.
I wear them every now and then, and people are grossed out. They can’t believe they are actually my teeth.

I can’t believe you had the balls to have your wisdom teeth removed lol I’m having a fight with my dentist because I’m too much of a chicken to bare the pain… seriously.
But I think it’s cool that you made earings with it lol You got a nice set of wisdom teeth, Jewels Diva! lol

LMAO, thanks for that. Didn't think it would hurt that much, and having the tops out wasn't that bad. It's the bottoms that hurt more as they're in the part of the jaw that moves.
thats fucking gross
