Hello CW friends!
This is a 300y (3$) thrift shop find. It is marked Trifari TM at the clasp. A bit of search on those marks told me that Trifari TM were produced from late 1980's through 1999 and that they were the last signed pieces by Trifari.
The beads are faceted white matte plastic (celluloid?) beads, alternating with a few larger glossy acrylic ones.
The necklace was quite dirty when I got it. I think I spent about an hour cleaning it, bead by bead (eeeeeee!), with soapy water, but it's still not quite there yet, showing vague traces of browning in places. Any idea how I could clean it more thoroughly?
Thank you and merci beaucoup!
