    Mid 1970's "bakelite" (passes simichrome, rub/chemical smell) phenolic plastic translucent tortoiseshell colored link bracelet w/YSL tag. For the woman who wanted a signed YSL :-) The earrings are also bakelite but aren't YSL, because they "match" I've always stored them together. This is the same color as the belt I saw on ebay (see previous YSL post). This lovely translucent color could also be called rootbeer. When I find out who manufactured these items for YSL I will add that info.

      Very nice. I recently found a similar necklace but by KJL. I really wanted it and the price was right but the condition was too bad. Well, one day....

      Thank you my friend! I think there are some fake KJL items floating around right now. But I can't find the online research to back my misgivings. I know my YSL items are the real deal - but not exciting for most. Not important - I'm not selling. Thanks for your love :-)

      you have so many beautiful pieces!

      lentilka - so do you! But as you can see I really am an old plastic nut :-)

      Lisa - YSL was an amazing designer. I'm sure you enjoyed the coat! Classic designs, beautiful quality :-)
