    Hello! I just want to show my latest buy - another bead necklace! I love the color of this necklace. Believe it´s a vintage necklace that has been restrung. The beads have a wonderful brownish wine color, like burgundy. I belive the beads are bakelite but there are 3 beads on each side that are frosted/mat and I don´think those are. They look a bit odd but creates some sort of effect I guess. Have anyone seen matt beads before - can they be vintage or are those new?

    The necklace is 27 cm long when closed so it´s about 10,6 inches closed and 21,3 inches when open. It has a beadclasp with a brass screw.

      Yes, this is definitely a bakelite necklace. It is very beautiful and this colour is very much sought after. The matt beads may be galalith. Nice find!

      That is such nice info Betty. I´m glad you like it. Thanks for your nice attention to my necklace. I´m learning more and more about plastic but is new to the subject. Need to find me a good reference book on plastic.

      Goes to show how little I know about Bakelite. I would have never said that it was Bakelite, and here you guys take one look and BAM!

      Beautiful color! The matte beads seem to work. They fit in w/general color and design. Do you think it has been restrung? Maybe when it was made back in the 20's or 30's they had those extra matte beads. It's really pretty! Love it!
    15. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 6 years ago
      Thankyou ever so much for your sweet coment
      Valentino! Yes I think it has been restrung and therefore I've been wondering if some alterations might have been made. Maybe the matt beads were added in order to make the necklace longer? But on the other hand the color match very well so who knows? I guess I just have to like it the way it is without knowing that. Yes thankyou, the color is wonderful :). I love wearing this necklace with white as it makes the color stand out even more.

      Gorgeous!!! colour and I think the mat beads add interest and draws your attention to the larger beads...subtle and clever.....:-)

      beautiful!!!
    18. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 6 years ago
      Inky thankyou! That's an idea, the mat beads are there to draws the attention to the larger beads! Why didn't I think of that? This makes me certain I should leave this as it is. :)
