Does anyone on this list have access to literature that discusses the use
of either permanent or deciduous human teeth as personal adornment. In some
material I have been examining I have ten deciduous teeth -- 3 molars, 4
premolars, and 3 incisors, the crowns of which have been shaped and
polished to look like beads or buttons. The roots have been cut off leaving
only the shaped and polished crowns. I'd appreciate any information you
might have. Thanks.
