Jewellery made of the teeth of 125 rabbits 2005/6

I made jewellery using the teeth of 125 rabbits. The central piece is the collar that bears the name “125 lapins.” It is composed of 2500 knotted together posterior teeth. Necklaces and brooches were constructed from the naturally curved front teeth. They bear one of two names: either “brochette de lapin” (in French the word brochette means skewer (for meat) or, literally, small brooch) or “dentelles de lapin” (dentelles is the French word for lace, while dent is also the word for tooth).
