I have to admit, I am really excited about this piece. I mean really. excited. I ended up going with a Britney Spears doll smile instead of a classic Barbie grin. Aside from the obvious appeal, (ie: the incredibly exaggerated size of the teeth) it also just felt all too appropriate on a conceptual level to specifically choose to use that doll instead. The concept continues to refine itself in exciting ways.

The fresh water pearls I recently purchased on etsy are proving to be endlessly inspiring for me right now. (There's something so lovely and sweet about my Grandma Lange's old dish filled with tiny pearls on my bench… just had to share this image.)

The piece in the middle is a fun little spin-off "pearly white" necklace using the red lipstick grin I initially intended to use in the tooth piece. That one will probably end up for sale in my etsy shop soon.
