From the London Dentistry Museum to the Solange Azagury-Partridge shop

A day of contrasts, although the two places are just a short walk from each other.
The London Dentistry Museum is a tiny one room museum, located in Wimpole Street, and is full of old dentistry articles. Not for the squeamish. Thankfully I'm not.

Here is my favourite piece there, a model (real human though) that was used to teach students of dentistry about the nerve system:

Creepy but happy looking. All skulls look happy, don't you think?

If you would like to see more, I have a Flickr Set of the entire collection.

Then, after a nice cup of peppermint tea, we went to the Jewellery boutiques in New Bond Street.
Solange Azagury-Partrige has a shop there, in which she has designed everything from the rugs to the ceilings... A must see if you are in the area.

We admitted we were jewellery design students, not customers, but were treated very nicely - it's a friendly place.
When I get rich I will go and buy stuff from the Stoned range.
