    I found this beautiful tortoise colored bakelite necklace at the same fleamarket where I found the micromosaic bracelet and the victorian brooch I posted here earlier... Havent had time to visit another fleamarket since :-/
    This weekend there is a big one just around the corner so I m hoping this one will make up for all the missed opportunities ;-)
    Anyways, the seller I bought this necklace from thought it was bone or something similar, so I bought it off him in an instant.
    I have a preference for brown and green colored bakelite, so I m really happy with my find.
    Maybe I like the mississippi mud-colored necklace I show you in the pictures just a tiny bit more ;-) its such a nice rich chocolate color! Hmm
    I would love to find some more bakelite bangles. In my opinion I havent found any this year.
    Hope you like it too!

      I love everything! Nice bracelets in the brown and yellow tones! I've already forgotten the bakelite names, probably because so many companies made jewelry and each could be a little different - but from my recent searching most of what we've posted in the past week on CW is "swirled" and not "end of day". I love these 2 longer necklaces you are showing in 3 and wearing in the last picture. I never find longer necklaces here, can someone tell me why?
