DESCRIPTION: I've paired a pretty early genuine Bakelite necklace & bracelet.
The necklace's cherry/carnelian/marmalade/custard yellow round beads are vibrant.
There is marbling & translucency.
Small, fluted findings are strung between each bead.
The necklace graduates & is strung on brown cotton twine.
It is finished with a copper barrel closure.
The "cog-" shaped bracelet compliments the necklace well.
It is "slice-cut" (interior & exterior dimensions are ~ the same height).
Rich cherry & deep yellow make a pretty pattern.
A wonderful marriage.
(All my Bakelite jewelry is tested using Simichrome Polish.)
