✨ These small but mighty studs have the sweetest backstory:
"This tiny shark's tooth was found by my niece Summer of 2019. As I do every Christmas, I make my nieces a special piece of jewelry. So this year I molded the found tooth into these tiny studs. 50% of the profit from these new Shark Teeth Studs will go into an account for my nieces to split one day <3 I plan to keep the tradition going every year by adding something they help me design and create"
