Here’s a new way to make some extra cash: keep your used gold braces and sell them to take advantage of rising gold prices. You could also do as some Brits do, and turn your braces into jewelry.

Other metal mouth Brits are turning their braces into jewelry by melting them after they have been removed. So I guess we can call them ‘precious metal mouths’ from now own!
