    This was a recent lucky find. I took my chance on this necklace based on the hidden clasp. It tested positive for Bakelite but I will have to restring it because the previous owner used fishing line.

    The colour is a bit unusual. It's kind of teal.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Wow, that’s a lot of Bakelite! That is a very “lucky” find! Congrats on a beautiful vintage necklace! I love the color!

      Gudrun, send this to me and I'll restring it for you after wearing it a few times! So nice. How long? Maybe it was meant to be doubled, so why would a closure be needed? I don't see fishing line from your photos but when you restring it, gently clean the bead holes. Why? This area can cause a different oxidation. Just gently to remove smudge, don't force, don't over clean. Really pretty - wear in best of health!

      Mary, I really enjoyed reading your comment! I actually would love to take your offer, but... I will take your advise about cleaning the beads. I have made the mistake of over cleaning many times. One should hope that I finally learn.
      The necklace is a bit over 22 inches times 2 - so about 44/45inches in total. I will wear it, hopefully in best of health. Thanks, Mary:)

      Tharless62, the clasp is visible in the first picture: Lock on the left hand side, where the strand is overlapping closer to the top of the picture. You can see two oval beads
      to the left and right of two smaller, more roundish beads. The roundish beads make the clasp.
