The description says a lot about this special Art Deco piece. Tested way positive with simichrome and all the bakelite tests. Measures 16" long. The largest bakelite chunky bead is 20 mm wide and 30mm long. There are 2 graduated sizes that are symmetrically strung on this necklace. The smaller beads measure 12mm wide and 22mm long. The metal ball that joins the necklace in the centre is enamelled very lightly and is fading. There are pink stones set into this ball making it very sparkly. The other beads on this necklace are not bakelite ..you can see they have seams and there are AB beads as well. I have a feeling that this was restrung from a much bigger necklace at some point and the smaller beads are replacements but it makes such an interesting mixture. Gorgeous !
