    I found 2 great carved orange celluloid necklaces that were broken and decided to give them a new life. Used vintage 30's-60's glass beads to enhance & restrung both (pic 1). I don't like using new clasps but this was all I had. Because these are gifts that was okay. I also made them 18".

    Pic 1 also shows a very nice flower clip marked Japan. 1950's.

    Orange is hard to shoot! Pic 3 shows how beautiful and deep the orange is and how spectacular that 2cm (.75") focal bead is.

    Anyway - I love old plastics as you know friends. Thanks for looking.

      Thank you mackay1st - I like your posts too. I try to restring to original and if I can't to use beautiful old vintage beads. My pictures aren't good but the other orange beads are all old 1950's glass from Japan - even the smaller ones.

      They are all lovely, and ready for a new life!
      Allways thought never buy plastic... Never say never!!! I just bought a nice celluloid "coral" necklace I'll share on arrival ;-)

      Thank you Elisabeth! I owe you a nice long email. Hope your weekend was great.

      Thank you Kyratango - most of the old plastics were such quality and rare to find them scratched - so often look brand. On the other hand celluloid couldn't handle heat well so sometimes it will be "grazed or has a crackled effect". My brown & cream necklace is an example but no one really inspects it that closely.

      Can't wait to see your coral necklace!
