I guess you meant jewellery though :lol::lol::lol:

I only learnt about bakelite recently when I met a collector. I didn't know jewellery was made from the stuff but it makes sense! It has an earthy colour and would be durable and light!

I have bakalite door handles (they are worn out and pretty sh#t)
The insulators on power poles were made out of bakalite and also early telephones

Im jewlery its highly collectible
But ive never actually seen any in the fresh
