I found this beautiful necklace and bracelet at a local thrift shop. The area is a retirement community and has been since the 40s. I love thrift shopping in this area as I am always looking for anything vintage, retro, mid-century modern, etc. These items remind me of my mother and grandmother's era and I suppose that it is in my blood. They make me feel nostalgic!
I love Bakelite jewelry and have quite a few pieces but I've never seen anything like these pieces. Material is amber in color with white marbling. Beads measure approx. .675" L x .5" W. Beads are strung and they fasten together with a screw embedded in the end beads (see photos). The necklace has an extension that can also be worn as a bracelet.
