Bakelite necklace handcrafted ooak Bakelite beads

* I look for random pieces of vintage Bakelite in order to make these one-of-a-kind necklaces. This necklace features nice chunky discs that you may recognize as earring blanks. They are a beautiful glossy bright orange with yellow and chocolate marbling. On top of each cabochon I've added a decorative translucent marbled yellow Bakelite flower. In-between each disc and up the chain I've added plain orange Bakelite beads. The chain is made from alternating orange and yellow plastic links that resemble vintage celluloid. Just something fun and a little different from your standard Bakelite bead necklace.

* This necklace is 23" long, but it can be made shorter by removing some links. The chunky discs are 1 1/4" in diameter and 1/4" thick and the beads are 9 mm in diameter.

* This original necklace is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches to the Bakelite components and a nice glossy patina.

All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted. Also included is a 10% off discount code for future purchases.

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.
