    Found this at an antique shop. It is a carved dark brown bakelite piece, probably a button, recently made into a ring. It is a huge piece of bakelite on my little hand so I will probably not keep it for long. I think it is cool and very retro looking. The bakelite is 4,5 cm in diameter.

      It IS very cool indeed but also strikes me as too big for a ring...perhaps it could be re-re-modified to make a fun pendant instead??
    2. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 2 years ago
      AnythingObscure you are right. That is a great idea and that way I get to keep it since it is a rule I have for myself and my collection. I have to be able to wear the stuff :)

      Thank you AnythingObscure!

      Elisabeth - as you know this large bakelite button would have been a coat button. It's very fun - but I agree, too big for a ring. It would be better as a brooch. Thanks for sharing - I have a lot of this size buttons too. XOXO

      Mary knows her Bakelite!
      A brooch or pendant are wonderful ideas. Against a white or light beige sweater, this would glow!
    6. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 2 years ago
      Yes I know Mary :) and I agree it needs to be altered. Easier to make it a brooch than pendant. We'll see. Maybe that way I don't have to part with it :)

      Thanks Ms.ChrystalShip it would look great. I will have to do something :)

      Yes you said it first AnythingObscure and I get to keep it :)))

      For now, wear it as a ring if you want to. Why not? Are you going out? I would love to get dressed up again and go out, hang out with friends, hear live music.....LOL
    11. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 2 years ago
      No I think it looks weird, too big. No I am not going out! All I do is go to work - because I have to - and then I go home. But still that doesn't mean I can't plan for a future without corona. In fact it is away to stay mentaly sane.
    12. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 2 years ago
      And yes I am happy to work :) and I realized I do two more thing - walks in the forest and trips to small shops with no people. Those are my ways to battle this time and some jewelry online shoping on top of that :)
