One of our favorite finds from the famous vintage bead hoard has to be the Bakelite beads. These vintage beads are exceptionally special because they are authentic Bakelite.  These lovely caramelized plum beads  measure 16mm in diameter. 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.
