The Details...

These earrings feature silver tone metal clips. They are each detailed with round Bakelite panel, carved with a floral motif and in a mustard colour. The earrings measure 1.75cm in diameter. 

A Short History...

These earrings are made from the thermoset plastic Bakelite used popularly in jewellery manufacture from the 1910s through to the 1940s. They have been proven to be Bakelite through testing. They are evocative of the post-depression era, when manufacture of luxury items, such as jewellery, could only really be achieved through the use of cheap, man-made materials.

Wear it With...

These earrings work beautifully with casual looks. Pair them with a gray marl jumper and cords for weekend chic.
