    All but one of these necklaces are bakelite. I love them. Vintage gems. You can wear bakelite at all times but seen together like this makes me think of autumn. Looking through my warderobe I realize I need to buy clothes to match them, not the other way around :) And I obviously need more green!

      All so lovely, and yes you have a lot of rich Autumn colors....trying to guess which isn't bakelite....I can't tell. I see my humble backgammon chip!

      Thanks Mary! It is the orange one. And yes the beautiful necklace you made for me is there. And now I realize I have the red necklace you made and that was in my jewelry box so I forgot to put it in the Photo. All the other necklaces was in a basket. I used to doubt the yellow large necklace but after you and others thought it to be bakelite I think it is so, but polished and restrung.
      I have this idea that mostly the autumn colors sold up here in the north. It is very rare to see other colors of bakelite here. I have this idea that they sold as faux amber because it was saught after here but not everyone could afford it. I really can not see why I would not see more green etc necklaces if it was sold here in the same amount? It is mostly necklaces I see and now and then a bangle and clip ons. I never ever see fun and playful bakelite brooches here. I don't think there has been any research into bakelite jewelry export to Europe? Some bakelite jewelry was ofcourse also made in Europe but I think most of it came from the US. Any ideas on this Mary?

      Oh! Which one? Which one?
      I have to say the red in the upper right photo! They are all splendid, though I know nothing of plastics, except their beauty!

      Thanks friend :) if you look at the yellow necklaces down to the left, it is the one with round beads that looks more orange. But I still like it :)

      Lovely colors! Yes, beads that imitated amber would be popular in Northern regions, especially after WW2 when tourists had $ and traveled.

      Many novelty companies were based in East coast USA that carved lovely, whimsical plastic, cheap or expensive because they sold here starting in the early 20's. There was a very strong costume jewelry manufacturing base here well into the 1970's.
