fun fact: Bakelite jewelry is: In a nutshell, Bakelite jewelry is made from a lightweight plastic, and was created in the 1900s, and became very popular in the 1930s. It became very popular around the time of the Depression, when the financial position of many Americans meant that women were looking for accessories that they could buy cheaply to dress up their outfits. Bakelite jewelry fitted the bill, especially as it was available in a variety of colors. Many pieces of Bakelite jewelry were designed to imitate coral, ivory, amber and tortoiseshell, which would have been much more expensive to buy. If women bought these pieces of jewelry, they could easily look like they were wearing jewelry that was much more expensive and sophisticated than it actually was.
