After the concert we went out to dinner at Tripp's and my dad was telling one of his stories. He's a great story teller and loves to comment on all sorts of things. Most of the stories are repeats but we love him a lot and always laugh no matter how often we have heard it. He has a flair for doing repeats and still making them funny.
One of his favorite shows is Jeopardy. We had been talking about my blog and my series about the creative use of jewelry posts that I sometimes do. Well, dad had a "story" that he said I could write about.
On a recent episode of Jeopardy, he said that a female contestant had described how she had her wisdom teeth into a pair of earrings. She was wearing them on the show for "wisdom." (Unfortunatley for her, she lost - so the idea didn't work.) But still, it was creative. My daughter loves the idea. She was disappointed her wisdom teeth were gone!
I had a look on google to see if this was some sort of fad, and found that all sorts of jewelry is being made from wisom teeth. This site called Trend de la Cream has a whole groupd of various jewelry items made from or in the shape of teeth.
If you have an interesting story about the creative use of jewelry, please share it with me and I'll be glad to feature you in a future blog.
