Bakelite bracelet bakelite jewelry bakelite beads
* I created this bright and noisy bracelet using vintage bakelite beads and the plastic fruits and leaves from a 1950's necklace. The bakelite beads range in size from 6mm to 12 mm and include red, three shades of orange, butterscotch, pink grapefruit, lemon and pale yellows and solid and marbled greens. In the fruit department there are bananas, apples, pears, oranges and green leaves. This is a one-of-a-kind Carman Miranda special, and if you're fruity like me, you're gonna love it!
* This bracelet is 8" long and uses a round thumb clasp. The bracelet can be shortened by attaching the clasp further down the chain. I can also shorten it for you if you convo me.
* All of the upcycled pieces of this bracelet are in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches. The chain clasp and findings are new.
All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted.
All bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
