Walkin' the dog-XL Bakelite Necklace

Walkin' the dog-XL Bakelite Necklace


An XL one-of-a-kind handmade necklace made with a ton of vintage Bakelite pieces from my stash! These large size one of a kind necklaces are some of my favorites to make and wear, even more fun hunting around trying to find all of the vintage components for them.

Base is a heavy-duty closed link acrylic chain in black. New chain was used for this piece to ensure pieces attached would be secured well, as bakelite does have a little weight to it. Attached are beautiful large black bakelite beads, small red marbled bakelite beads, small marbled bakelite chips. The focal point has been created with a large red bakelite chip with an adorable black pup attached to the center. This piece hangs from vintage black celluloid links on a bright red bakelite bow (Lotsa’ Bakelite on this one!).

Beads have all been strung on new, stainless steel components and sturdy stainless steel hardware has been to attach pieces to the chain. Necklace is finished off with an XL silver tone lobster claw clasp and includes a 2” extender chain for a customizable fit.

-Chain length: 17.5” + 2.5” extender chain. 20” total length

-Outer Chain Link Size: 13x18mm , Chain Link Thickness: 3.4mm

-Materials used: vintage bakelite chips, vintage bakelite beads, vintage bakelite dog, vintage bakelite bow, vintage celluloid link, black acrylic chain, stainless steel + silver tone hardware.

*Please note: Components and pieces used on this necklace are vintage (1930’s-1950’s), while I select pieces in the best condition possible for my jewelry, they can have small flaws that make them unique and one of a kind, small imperfections are normal for materials of this age but still have lots of life and wearability. To ensure a long life of your jewelry, I suggest keeping these pieces far away from water and the elements that can cause harm to them. Necklace will arrive safely packed in a Jewelry box that can be used to store your piece when not being worn ❤️xo
