Bakelite Jazz Series

I had the greatest fun making these!
Louis and Ella, are the first in my Jazz series of recycled pendants and brooches.

Louis is constructed from a painted wooden bead, vintage buttons, Bakelite beads and cabochons, and is holding a vintage sterling silver trumpet.

Ella too is made from a painted wooden bead, vintage plastic button, Bakelite beads and cabochons, fabric and she holds a sterling silver cocktail glass.

These two make beautiful music together – but can be worn separately. They hark back to the articulated plastic jewellery of the 40’s and 50’s which I love so much.

Other band members will be made from vintage Bakelite dominoes – once I’ve sourced some good ones.
