Bakelite Jewelry: Bold & Beautiful but is it Real?
I credit the Nashville Flea Market with my introduction to Bakelite jewelry, as I just happened upon a wonderful seller at the flea. What appeals to me most about Bakelite jewelry are the colors with their boldness and concentrated hues and the quirky and imaginative designs. Oh, just as an aside, I lust for anything opaque. Bakelite jewelry reflects the Art Deco movement with its strong geometry and angles. The intricate carved bangles, rings and necklaces place this unusual jewelry squarely in US History.
