Bizarre trend: Jewelry from baby teeth, cat paw casts

A Florida designer is taking custom jewelry to a new level. And she says no request is too weird.

Jackie Kaufman creates jewelry out of casts molded from dog noses, dog teeth, rat paws, cat paws, and even baby teeth.

"It holds a special meaning," she said. "It's not just like a tooth that you're gonna throw out."

Kaufman says she makes about 30 pieces a week and each piece is custom made for each customer.

She's now venturing into fingerprint necklaces and soundwaves engraved on rings.
