    It has been some time since I last posted here on CW. I have been too busy.

    Here is one of my latest finds: I have no idea what it is!
    Based on the style I would think it might go back to the eighties. The center piece looks like it is molded with some carved out areas. It is some kind of plastic, but what kind, I really don't know.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      It's a pretty necklace, love the way the cental focal point flows and loops into the beads.
      Our Mary might have an inkling to what type of plastic, I'm sure she will be by.
      Great find!

      Thanks so much for your comment, Mr.CrystalShip. I hope, too, that Mary stops by. Her knowledge about jewellery is invaluable:)

      Almost looks like ivory to me and for the life of me I can't think of the name of beads I thought they were. If it's not ivory, I bet it is bakealite. The bakealite queen would know! ;)

      Howlite. That's what I thought it was but nope. Not it either, the beads I mean. sorry can't help!

      Shareurpassion, thanks so much for your comments. The necklace reminded me too of ivory, as well as some kind of stones but it is certainly is neither of it. There are no Schreger lines and it is too light for stones. So the question is, what kind of plastic it might be. And yes, the Bakelite Queen might help:)

      Oh boy, lot's of pressure and just a guess here. It's Lucite or a newer hard plastic from 1970's-90's. I believe. These large focal pendants were popular late 70's with YSL safari collection, in 80's with the TV show Dynasty, Dallas (think Nolan Miller) ...also Tiffany's Palomo Piccasso natural shapes with big focal themes. I'm guessing 80's.

      Design styles trickle down from high-end to Wow, Val can afford it. And, that can take years. Also to realize is that those designs are "safe selling bets" for mass manufacturers, so they will repeat them over and over.
