#143 15mm round plus the dangler. Authentic vintage Bakelite beads. No two are exactly alike in color. These are a semi transparent color with yellow ribbons swirled within... Yummy. They were found without holes and we had them drilled and the gold plated pins added to make a wonderful dangler. This item is very limited! These Bakelite beads were found in the famous vintage bead hoard. Why is Bakelite so special? It was invented in 1908 and produced through the 1930's. Bakelite was called the material of a thousand uses. Bakelite was only made for a short period of time and there is no other material out there that compares! The feel and look of Vintage Bakelite is what has intrigued us here at A Grain of Sand. Authentic Bakelite is not not so easy to find. We are happy to say that these Bakelite beads and components are now available right here! All of our Bakelite has been tested for authenticity.
