Art Deco Bakelite Necklace
What do Geometric Shapes, Black and Cream, and Bakelite and Faux French Ivory have in common? Art Deco.*
These were a joy to create. Each stylized Tassel Necklace is a One-of-a-Kind...and quite a chunky stack of goodness! The vintage 30's Faux Ivory pieces resemble real Ivory (and that was the purpose) with beautifully striated lines throughout...dramatically contrasting with the black and brown Bakelite. These make quite a Statement. The length of each focal ranges between 4-5" and hangs from a 34" antique silver rope chain. The PERFECT toss-on!

*A bit about Art Deco...also called style moderne, movement in the decorative arts and architecture that originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in the United States during the 1930s. Its name was derived from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, where the style was first exhibited. Art Deco design represented modernism turned into fashion with the intention to create a sleek and anti-traditional elegance that symbolized wealth and sophistication.
