Making Jewellery, Bakelite, Flowers and Trashy Diva

I made this necklace!  I had a handful of old Bakelite blobs, dice, blocks and shapes I got with an auction lot a long time ago.  I had plans of making them into a chunky bracelet so I drilled holes through the lot.  After making a bracelet, it really didn't look fabulous so I took it apart, wired them onto headpins and made a 40's style cha-cha necklace instead.  Much nicer, yes?

It matched nicely with my Trashy Diva Walk in the Park dress.  I added platform Miss L Fire shoes, warm tights, a cardi and lots of flowers.

Isn't Bakelite divine?
Dress: Trashy Diva
Cardi: Modcloth

  3. Really, really fabulous handmade necklace! It strikes me, and I say this in a totally positive way, as something Wilma Flintstone might have sported if Bedrock had Bakelite.
