Bakelite is one of my favorite types of vintage jewelry. According to Collectorsweekly.com Bakelite was an early plastic resin, developed by Leo Baekeland in 1907. Originally used for industrial purposes thanks to its ability to withstand heat, molded Bakelite and its cast cousin, Catalin, made the jump to costume jewelry in the 1920s and had their heyday in the 1930s and ’40s. Here are a few blog posts where I am wearing Bakelite jewelry. Go Here to see this post.
