Shipping to United States: Free
Sorry, this item has sold.


DESCRIPTION: These are the largest Bakelite balls I have ever seen at ~25 mm.
I am thrilled to offer a signed beaded necklace by the late, great Kenneth Jay Lane.
Each bead is created from End-of-the-Day BUTTERSCOTCH, Milk Chocolate, & MOCHA chocolate Bakelite.
The marbling is dramatic.
The beads have a healthy shine.
Each massive bead is flanked by a high polished, gold tone ball.
The beads are strung on golden wire.
The closure is an early KJL signature twisted-S hook.
The generous extender is ~4" for just the right fit.
The original KENNETH JAY LANE black velveteen pouch is included.
This hard to find, OVER-the-TOP, massive BAKELITE necklace is AMAZING.
(*All my Bakelite offerings are authenticated using Simichrome Polish.)
