    This necklace has been in the store for some weeks. Several times I looked at it but didn't buy it because of the clasps. The necklace has the cheapest lobster claw clasp you can imagine. It is strung on some kind of fishing line. The last time I went to the store, I took some time to examine the necklace carefully. I checked for the weight, the sound, and the smell. For $3 Canadian, I took my chances.

    When I came home, I tested the necklace and it tested positive for Bakelite.

    As it is now, the necklace is a bit over 32 inches long and weighs 92 grams. I will look for a more fitting clasp and re-string it, making it look more its age.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Mary this necklace is gorgeous, such a beautiful wine color, and I love the graduated bead sizes. Great find!

      Gudrun, my apologies. It is early and I thought this was Mary's post as she loves bakelite. Kindly delete the above, I will rewrite for you -

      Newfld, no apologies needed. It is actually a nice compliment to think of Mary. She has an amazing collection of Bakelite jewelry! I am working on it but bangles and brooches are almost non-existent here where I live. The only places where one can find some are antique stores, and there Bakelite is rather expensive:(

      Thanks so much for your comment, Mary. I seem to find necklaces but nothing else. We should team up for the perfect parure :)

      I have the same problem. Only occasionally I find some Bakelite. Since people donate all kinds of things, I have to wonder where the good stuff goes. I rarely buy online because of the bad exchange rate and the high shipping cost in Canada.
