Vintage Bakelite Bangle Bracelet Marbled Caramel & Chocolate: This mouthwatering heavily marbled vintage bakelite bangle bracelet reminds me of an ice cream sundae dripping with caramel and chocolate sauce! The colors are warm and wonderful, and perfect for fall! The large dark chocolate "ink spot" is outlined with hints of glowing paprika. The marbling is a mixture of rich caramel, dark and milk chocolate, and the touch of paprika makes this bangle pop! It measures 1 1/4" wide and has a wonderful polish and heft. Tests positive with both Simichrome and hot water.
Vintage Art Deco Faceted "Cherry Amber" Bakelite Bead Necklace: This gorgeous vintage art deco necklace is composed of 34" of faceted "cherry amber" bakelite beads, the largest center bead measures 1 by 3/4". The necklace is hand knotted between each bead with a thumbless spring ring clasp. The necklace has a dark, almost black patina, and glows deep cherry red in the light. The term "cherry amber" was used in a book, and has been picked up due to rampant internet use. Please note that there is nothing of true amber in this necklace, it is vintage bakelite. It has been both hot water and simichrome tested, and of course passes both tests. The necklace beads are in wonderful condition, the knotted silk has a few small frays and a tiny bit of stretching, but is secure. The clasp works fine, but you do have to push it back closed, it does not spring. At 34", this is long enough to easily put on over your head. I have worn this several times and the clasp stays closed. These necklaces are becoming harder to find, and would be a wonderful addition to any bakelite collector or bead lover!
