This extremely rare Vintage Bakelite Parure purchased directly from the private Collection of Ginger Moro by me years ago and was featured in Lillian Baker's book "Plastic Jewelry of the Twentieth Century" which was recently updated by Ginger Moro and Karima Parry. The set consists of an incredible chunky 32 inch necklace comprised of alternating links of black and marbled spinach bakelite rings, a 8 inch bracelet and TWO pairs of earrings, one black, one marbled spinach green - 1.5 X .5 clip earrings. This is a true Statement parure. I have never seen another one as incredible as this. I have included lots of photos so that you can get an understanding of how spectacular this set is.

Wonderful UNSIGNED sterling "River of Life" bracelet has been verified as a Period Copy of the famous bracelet design attributed to William Spratling with the matching Signed earrings. This bold, heavy silver cuff bracelet was one of Spratling's most popular designs both in the 1930s - mid 1940s and remains popular today! Its design is a wonderful example of Spratling's earliest work: silver balls, silver beads, rope trim, and heavy carved incised lines. Spratling described this design as a wide Aztec bracelet with framed buttons. Spratling did not produce this design after 1946. The bracelet is substantial 1 and 7/8 inches wide and the earrings are 3/4 inches wide with a 3/8” dome. These earrings are known as Half ball silver earrings. According to Spratling's autobiography "File on Spratling," this was one of his earliest designs. He continued to produce these earrings until early 1946 according to www.spratlingsilver.com. I purchased these items together from an estate along with some other early Mexican Silver pieces. The River of Life Bracelet is one of Spratlings best known designs. This bracelet is very substantial and has appropriate patina and wear for the age. The domed areas have some dings, but for me that indicates that this bracelet was a favorite and was worn and enjoyed regularly by the original owner. The earrings have wonderful patina and are fully hallmarked with the ca. 1940's stamp. I have included lots of photos. Any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

Diachroic/Alexandrite Bakelite: Azure Blue Prystal Bakelite bracelet was an exciting discovery by Brandon Welch, Bakelite Artist. This vintage blue prystal bracelet was newly dotted by Brandon. When he polished the bracelet we thought was applejuice he made this remarkable discovery. 1.25 inches wide and very thick this bracelet is substantial. Brandon Welch is an avid Nouveau and Deco jewelry collector with a focus on Bakelite and early plastics. He is an experienced sculptor of 15 years with work in many mediums. These last few years more and more of his focus has become Bakelite. With Bakelite Jewelry, Brandon brings the finesse of a jeweler. Brandon has an extensive palette of genuine vintage Bakelite material to choose from, to create these original pieces. I am proud to offer a line of signed hand sculpted and inset Vintage Bakelite bracelets and custom crafted pins created by Brandon . These pieces have been created with the same time honored techniques, from Vintage Bakelite rods and tubes, manufactured before 1940. Prystal bakelite bangles are difficult to find, and the Azure Blue is one of the most difficult. This bracelet is featured in the Antique Trader online on February 10th, 2011 in an article by Kathy Flood, noted author. http://www.antiquetrader.com/article/top_list_types_blue_vintage_costume_jewelry/ The link is not clickable, but you can cut and paste to see this beauty.

This is a set of 5 FIVE matched vintage Bakelite bangle bracelets.This set consists of a green, deep burgundy/brown, cherry red, black and butterscotch bracelet which is 1 inch wide, all the others are .75 inches wide. When Bakelite bangles were originally made, the designs were often available in more than one color. In the past sixty or so years these bangles have scattered to the four corners of the earth, and reassembling a matched set today requires dedication and patience and can take years to accomplish. A fine matched set of Bakelite bangles like these are rarely available for sale. Insurance is included in the cost of shipping.
