    Bakelite jewelry bakelite necklace upcycled bakelite

    * I really enjoy playing around with pieces of bakelite and creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. This necklace is made from bakelite poker chips, buttons, cabochons and beads. The poker chips are a beautiful gold marble. Four of the chips are decorated with bright green and yellow marbled bakelite buttons. The remaining chip holds a hefty creamy yellow cabochon that was probably meant to be an earring. The poker chips are attached to a brass link chain with red celluloid links. The bakelite beads match the greens and yellows found in the other pieces. This necklace closes with a shepherd's hook, which can be connected further down the chain if you wish to make the necklace shorter.

    I use a spray accelerant and a type of "superglue" when gluing pieces of bakelite. The accelerant makes the glue dry faster and form a stronger bond between the pieces.

    * This necklace is 24" long. The largest discs are 1 1/2" in diameter and the beads are approximately 1/2" in diameter.

    * Condition is excellent vintage with no chips, cracks or obvious scratches. Minor surface wear, appropriate to the age of these pieces, can be seen under a magnifying glass.

    * All pieces (excluding the metal chain and red links) test positive for bakelite using simichrome polish and hot water (smell).

    Renew, reuse and recycle, and make it fun! This one-of-a-kind upcycled bakelite necklace will be shipped in a gift box.
