Description

Rare Vintage red cherry color Bakelite beads, from the '30 -'40 s have been used to make this gorgeous, elegant piece. Beautiful design, a combination of wonderful round beads, alternating with small silver color beads, grass green bakelite beads and mint green carved leaves. Absolutely beautiful!

The necklace has been restrung. We used beadalon stringing wire and added new silver plated findings.

Dimensions:
The necklace /choker is 19" or 48 cm in length plus 7 cm extension
The cherry beads: 8 mm and 4 mm
The grass green bakelite beads: 7 mm
The aventurine leaves: approx. 35 mm x 15 mm

*The Hot Water/Friction Rub test for Bakelite has been done, it came out positive. This beautiful piece PASSED the SIMICHROME Polish TEST as well.
Looking for a substitute for shellac Leo Baekeland discovered this new material, called today Bakelite. It hit big round the 30s - a heavier plastic that didn't change when heated. Carved pieces are done so by hand.
