Weird!

Yeah.... 8-[ 8-[ 8-[

My father is a retired dentist. I remember years ago in his office (20 years ago probably) he showed me a box full of teeth that had been pulled. They were all from patients that didn't want them, but had gold/silver amalgam fillings. He regularly shipped it off to a refiner to recover the metals.

I can remember the feeling of creeped out revusion I had seeing that box of teeth. I can not imagine setting them into jewellery let alone wear them!

Yeeeeeeeuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkk..... :shock: :shock: :shock:

To each their own... but not for me!
