Plastics

I admit to having a thing for plastic and bakelite jewellery so this display in a vintage shop in Kensington Market is perfect for me. Give me a great red, carved bakelite bracelet any day rather than a diamond-encrusted one!

Wow, that's amazing - your preferences in jewelry...I know lots of men who'd trade in their wives for you! Nah, just kidding! 'Tis a colorful display for sure!

You would have loved the collection I saw at one of our local antique stores last weekend. The pins were my favorites.

I somehow don't think I've heard the term bakelite before.

There is a certain attraction for bakelite with some people. I am one, but not necessarily for bracelets. I'd attract unwanted attention wearing bakelite bracelets.
