When little children begin to lose their baby teeth, it's an exciting time for them. They get excited to put the tooth under the pillow in hopes of a visit from the Tooth Fairy who will tuck some cash underneath.
But what happens once they have collected all their baby teeth? Do they just throw them away? Absolutely not! There are plenty of creative uses for those fallen chompers that are far more interesting than leaving them in a drawer somewhere.

Process: 1) Start by rinsing off any debris found on your pulse. 2) Cut a piece of beading wire long enough to accommodate threading each pearl onto it. 3) Bend one end over to make sure the first drilled pearl won’t fall off as you work. 4) Thread silicone stops before each bead added until finish threading last pearl (make sure adding two stops at ends). 5) Rustle up earring-holding hardware and use small pliers to fix metallic pins through already existing drill holes. 6) Add jump rings that attach hook fitting onto where threads stop symmetrically.
Now style yourself trendy ice-breaker earrings with your kid’s sheddings hanging down!
