I remember watching Jaws about 600 times when I was younger and thinking to myself, "Oh, Hell no. Every shark is a giant killer that just wants to rip me from my happy, yellow raft and eat my dog." Thanks, Mom and Dad, for letting your impressionable child watch that pants-wettingly scary movie over and over and over.

Pee your pants a little bit? Yeah, so did I. Moving on....
Now that you know this fear of mine, I must admit my quiet obsession with shark teeth. I bought myself a shark tooth necklace at the Baltimore Aquarium 4 years ago and wear it when the mood for extra shark power strikes. This past weekend, my husband and I went to the GULFARIUM where I made a point of buying a shark tooth woven into a pretty blue bracelet. I even made the two very hungry Marines wait an extra 5 minutes for me to get this bracelet. If you know anything about hungry Marines, then you know I was putting my life at risk.

Now that my bracelet is gone, I've gone on a hunt to find shark tooth jewelry that might last more than 18 hours. Check out some of my favorites:
What are your thoughts on shark teeth? Does wearing one make you feel imbued with the power of the great shark? Or would you rather keep the dangerous beasts as far from you as possible?
