Shipping to United States: Free

*DESCRIPTION: What a fun, whimsical genuine Bakelite** charm bracelet this is.
It is bright & bold; chunky; and cha-cha sounding.
The bracelet features SIX red, End-of-the-Day Bakelite nuggets/acorns.
Each nugget is topped with an etched end cap (like early Napier Bakelite pieces).
On either side of each Bakelite charm is a plastic red pepper charm with filigree end cap.
On either side of each red pepper is a pretty, matte-finished detailed sea shell.
Also, there are five large ball-shaped charms.
The bracelet chain is created from sets of big jumped rings, one high polished & one texturized.
To close: A big spring ring clasp hooks to a large jump ring.

Big, bold, & chunky & fun to wear.


**(All my Bakelite pieces are authenticated using Simichrome Polish.)

bracelet length: ~8”
double jump ring chain alone: ~3/8”
Wt.: ~104 gms
*HALLMARK(s): unsigned
*CONDITION: overall very good condition.
The big balls have lost much of their gold tone metal. As a result, they are mostly silver tone.
The spring ring clasp shuts tightly.

Please dive into the photos for yourself.
