WWII Patriotic Bakelite

WWII Era Bakelite Jewelry inspired by the war effort. Original pieces worn by women in the 1940's after America became involved in the second world war. Often called 'SWEETHEART' JEWELRY, the material differs from those of the sweetheart jewelry worn during WWI because of the availability of Bakelite to artists through factories in America. Bakelite was purchased in rods and sheets and home workshops were very common due to the lack of availability of precious metals. The jeweler or crafter turned to bakelite and soon lucites to produce not only jewelry, but many decorative items for the home. Acrylics and other resins were commonly used as well. This was the emergence of The Plastics Era.
