    1930's celluloid choker 15.5" - will have to add a few links for comfort. The central motif is 1.5", a fun lightweight addition to my plastic obsession collection. More of a dusty slate blue, the pictures are a little bright. This was a recent lot purchase that included 3 cellulod bangles, a cinnabar bangle and 5 other plastic goodies for $18. I don't have any other plastic in this color, but I have 1940's crepe that would make a nice blouse using an old 1940's sewing pattern....... I used to sew a lot, but failing eyesight has slowed me down.

    Thanks for stopping by with any comments.

      Thank you Broochman for your nice comment - it must have been about 50c back in the day! But, pretty and in good shape.

      Thank you Jenni - Yes a nice blue, yep it's original and not patched together like some of my jewels :)

      This lovely piece reminded me of jewellery I made in the sixties. My father had a lot of wires in his workshop. My favorite were the shiny copper wires but he also had some covered in colourful materials (rubber or plastic; I am not sure). I made little flowers by winding the wire on a pencil, taking the spirals off, tying them in the middle, opening them to little flowers, sometimes flattening them, and finally connecting them to a necklace. Sorry, Mary, I got carried away. It is a lot easier to make them than to describe them - LOL

      This necklace is a wonder!
      The "dusty" blue is a unique color, and I would love to see that blouse!
      Wish I had the patience for sewing, my Mother, on the other hand, was a seamtress/ perfectionist. She spent one whole day putting the sleeves on my Communion dress.
      Oops, I, too, got carried away! But you are lucky to be able to sew!

      What a fun necklace! I like the color, looks great with material in last pic. It kind of reminds me of the corded phone lines ;)

      I am glad I am not the only one:) Some things just bring back memories!

      Gudrun - hello! Yes, covered copper! I have some waiting to be made into funky coils too. Thanks for reminding me.

      Eileen - I'll post it when it's done. Most likely (since I'm tubby) it will be a semi-fitted, hip length 3/4 or short sleeve blouse with little pearl buttons and pointy collar....I don't cut up my old vintage patterns, I use the instructions and reshape the collar. Yes, in my design school days I spent TOO much time trying to get sleeves set right - ugh! Thanks for sharing your memory of your Mama. Mine was 4-h leader and home-ec teacher. She knew how to sew :-)

      Thanks MrsT - it does! And I have a perfect copper coiled braclet to go with it..

      Thanks friends for loves: aura, Thomas, Fort, Kevin, Hel1

      -Mary
