I bought these lovely .5" trefoil (3-petal, clover shape) butterscotch swirl bakelite beads recently. There were also 5 matching 7mm beads. I couldn't recreate exactly because I was missing 20 or so 7mm beads. The original was probably 18" - a popular 30's-40's length. Since I have many of those shorter items I decided to make it as long as possible so I wouldn't need a clasp. Used 5mm brown bakelite beads and some small pewter beads (from the Val stash). Then, because I don't like perfect symmetry (ha ha!) I added the 1" brown barrel bakelite button (plus it hides the crimps).
Hannah displays this w/a matching 1" wide swirly bangle. Hope you enjoy.
