Bakelite Jewelry

The first fully synthetic plastic, Bakelite - named after inventor and chemist Leo Baekeland, is a thermosetting plastic created in 1907. Specifically it is a phenol formaldehyde resin, created through a compression reaction of phenol with formaldehyde and requires great pressures to cure and set. 
It was originally desirable in many industries due to insulation properties and how quickly it could be produced. It could be found in many electrical applications including TVs and Radios. By the 1920's and 30's productions costs came down and the material was being used in household goods and jewelry. During war time Bakelite found many uses from buttons to googles to jewelry in patriotic colors. Post war eras brought about newer better plastics, such as the commonly found ABS we use today and in many ways Bakelite was phased out of industrial and commercial use.  
Today Jewelry, Radios and Housewares made from Bakelite are still highly collectible. Below you can shop our collection of Bakelite Bangles and Earrings.
