Bakelite poker chip necklace on Celluloid chain
* I make these Bakelite poker chip necklaces using vintage Bakelite poker chips and adding various types of Bakelite parts and pieces and hang everything on a plastic chain. This particular necklace uses marbled light yellow poker chips and features a super chunky marbled red cabochon and 4 somewhat less chunky plain red cabochons hung from a vintage celluloid chain. Red marbled beads also hang from the pink celluloid chain on gold metal findings. I use modern lobster style clasps because the vintage clasps tend to be unreliable and hard to open.
* This necklace measures 23" long, but can be made shorter by moving the clasp further down the chain. The poker chips are 1 1/2" in diameter the large marbled cab is 1" in diameter and 1/2" thick and the rest of the cabochons are 7/8" in diameter and 3/8" thick. The beads are 7/16" in diameter.
* The Bakelite components of this piece are in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or visible scratches.

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.
