Hobe Bakelite laminated geometric bead necklace

This is a great Hobe vintage Bakelite necklace with transparent tangerine and opaque black laminated rounded triangular beads mixed with round black beads. While the shepherd's hook closure is marked Hobe, I was able to verify that this piece was made by Hobe by finding 2 identical pieces on PInterest. In between each bead is a pink glass spacer bead, which makes me suspect that the orange portions started out as pink and have patinated over time. The beads are strung on a silver chain, which allows them to move around. The necklace measures 19" long when including the extender chain. The 3 largest laminated beads are 20mm long and 22 mm in diameter. In excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or visible scratches to the Bakelite and no lamination issues. The silver chain and the glass beads show no signs of wear. A unique addition to your Bakelite wardrobe!

All items are shipped in a gift box unless otherwise noted. Also included is a 10% off discount code for future purchases.

All Bakelite is tested using a variety of methods. These include Simichrome polish, hot water (smell test), tapping bangles together for the appropriate sound, and checking for mold lines and other discrepancies.
