The 'Dreamgirls' actress decided she wanted to keep her six-year-old son David Daniel Otunga Jr's milk tooth after it fell out and so made it into a pendant which dangles off an open heart attached to a gold chain.

Hudson - who has David with her fiance, WWE Superstar David Otunga - has a passion for creating her own accessories and jewellery that means something special to her.

Posting a selfie onto her Instagram account showing off the tooth necklace, Hudson wrote: "Yal like my tom ford glasses that I made into my prescription seeing glasses and my baby's first tooth he lost hanging from a heart clinging to gold on my neck ! I like making things my own . I call it jenniferizing ! Thank u guys (sic)"

Hudson, 34, is not the first celebrity to use teeth to make a fashion statement.

In 2012, Kesha asked her fans to send her a tooth each and after receiving over 1,000 gnashers, she decided to create a bra, headdress and earrings out of them.

She previously told BANG Showbiz: "I asked for them to send me their teeth and I got, like, over 1000 human teeth.

"I made it into a bra top, and a headdress, and earrings, and necklaces. I've worn it out!"
