.

Leo Beakeland (1863 -1944), a Belgian who had
moved to America, was the inventor of Bakelite.
Made by the condensation of phenol and
formaldehyde in the presence of a catalyst, it was used

for everything from tools and telephones to
jewelry. "Bakelite" is frequently used as a generic name for all phenol
formaldehyde, including Catalin and Marblette, which came later and in a
wider range of colors. Bakelite is a thermoset plastic, meaning that once
cast or molded and hardened, it will not melt, burn or dissolve. It can only
be worked by carving, sawing, tumbling, painting and gluing.
One type of bakelite is called "Prystal",
often described as a dichroic (color changing) bakelite, and also as a fully
transparent bakelite.

Making Bakelite jewelry was at it’s zenith from the late 1920s till the
start of WWII in 1942, and even after Diane Von Furstenberg and Hattie
Carnegie, among others, leant their names to this wonderful jewelry. The
lack of money and need for inexpensive fun during the Depression era of the
1930s gave the whimsy, colorful and cheerful look of bakelite jewelry the
perfect market. The sophisticated Deco and machine age look of some of the
pieces made them fashion-forward.

Today, not only the vintage bakelite jewelry is collected, but also the work
of contemporary Bakelite artisans who are fashioning different styles of
jewelry using old stock and bakelite pieces and parts. Sadly, it is also
being faked, like so many things these days, so buy from a reputable dealer.
It is such fun to wear, and mixing and matching stacks of bangles is just
part of the personalization of your own collection.

We have a wonderful selection on our web site and enjoy both buying and
selling it.
