Losing your first tooth is definitely a big-kid moment, our oldest son’s milk teeth have started to fall out. The tooth fairy kindly dropped Louies first milk tooth off at the workshop for Ashley to cast in sterling silver, to keep as a little keepsake…. We’re thinking of developing the idea as a charm, for mothers to keep and pass down when the time feels right. The only question left to ask is “What does the tooth fairy think of all this?”
For generations jewellery has been worn to celebrate a milestone in life, special memory or loved one. And although the idea of wearing a piece of jewellery cast from your child’s tooth may sound controversial, it’s been around for years, even Queen Victoria herself had pieces of bespoke jewellery set with her children’s teeth.
Here at LuLu & Charles you can have your child’s baby tooth (or teeth) cast in sterling silver or gold. As any mother knows, when a child looses his or her first tooth, its a big moment in a childs life. As a parent, you want to be able to make those moments memorable. Why not make that memory last forever by turning the tooth into a piece of bespoke handmade jewellery. No one ever knows what to do with teeth once they fall out…we can make it into a beautiful piece of jewellery to wear forever or keep as a unique keepsake.
The only question left to ask is “What does the tooth fairy think of all this?” We’d love to hear what you think, please feel free to leave a comment on this blog post…
