  • Details
    Bakelite jewelry bakelite bracelet bakelite necklace.

    This is an amazing and unique demi created by Freirich Jewelry Co. from bakelite and metal beads with gorgeous gold filigree metal accents. Although the bakelite beads were made and carved during the 1930's & 40's, they were not used to create these pieces until the early 1960's (which was when Freirich began signing their jewelry). The uncarved bakelite beads are an eod marble in rich tones of olive, medium and dark green and pale orange. The carved bakelite beads appear to be chocolate brown, but upon closer inspection you can see that their original color was a medium green and reddish orange marble. All of the carved beads have antique gold filigree bead caps. The metal balls in-between are silver with a gold wash and the findings are all plated in gold metal. By each end of the tonge clasp is a very ornamental gold metal filigreed rectangle, which creates a very elegant look.

    The inner strand of the necklace, including the extender, measures 16 1/2" long, with the outer strand being about an inch longer. If you prefer it to be longer you can purchase 3" metal necklace extenders at most craft stores and jewelry outlets. The clasp is an ornate shepherd's hook. The bracelet is 9" long and 1 1/2" wide. The tongue clasp is in good working condition. It occasionally sticks a little, but at least you know that your bracelet will not fall off!

    All of the carved and green beads test positive for bakelite using simichrome polish and hot water.

    This gorgeous demi is amazing and in excellent vintage condition and will shipped in a pair of foiled gift boxes.
