    This is a recent find. The beads tested positive for Bakelite. I have a feeling that the original necklace broke and the former owner put it back together with some AB crystal beds. There is no clasp.

    I am thinking of restoring the original Bakelite necklace and using a vintage clasp. There are enough beads for a choker necklace. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for looking:)

      Beautiful Bakelite beads! And you are right, the AB crystals just don’t seem to fit. Mary or Elizabethan will have the ideas you seek! Wonderful find!

      I would look through your stash (ha ha happily!) to find a proper clasp. And, depending on the color use same color metal beads between the lovely bakelite. Lovely!
