Sweet tooth. As groovy as it is grotesque, this sculptural necklace ($150 in silver; $700 in 14k gold) was cast by Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Alexis Canter from an actual wisdom tooth.  Inspired by organic edibles, Canter based her latest collection on petite, mundane items that belong in one’s mouth, including lentils, sunflower seeds and coffee beans.  But we think this charm is perfectly suited for Halloween:  a little eerie, with a built-in warning not to gorge on too many Tootsie rolls.

Available at Bird, 220 Smith St at Butler St, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (718-768-4940).  –Kristina Dechter
