 BAKELITE BRACELETS

circa 1930-1950's


Bakelite
Bangles


 

 
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 and 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.  

Bakelite jewelry was at it's zenith from the late 1920s till the start of WWII in 1942. 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.
See our bakelite feature in Jewel Chat.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
