Bye-Bye Bakelite

I have a modest and sentimental collection of vintage Bakelite bracelets. I began acquiring them when my husband gave me a pair for my birthday. They are wonderfully cheerful. I mixed and matched and wore them almost every day. When I was buying the bracelets, I learned a trick to tell whether they were real […]
