DIAMOND SHAPED BAKELITE EARRINGS - GREEN, YELLOW AND RED

Some time ago I was lucky to buy a quantity of round and diamond shaped bakelite pieces which I am slowly making up into wearable jewellery. My jeweller has added small rings to the pieces so that I could attach a pair of silver, lever backed (pierced) earrings fittings.  The bakelite pieces test positive for bakelite with simichrome cream and the colours look good with other bakelite items in similar colours.  Full details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - the earrings are £45 and the reference number is 2368.  I love bakelite and always have some pieces in my shop at Vintage Modes, Grays Antiques.  (Full details on the web site).
