What's Old is New

Kate Spade

I was flipping through the latest issue of Lucky Magazine with Rachel Bilson on the cover and came across a feature called "Bold as Bakelite". The page features new jewelry being made from Bakelite and Lucite.            
Both are forms of Resins, a material that was used in making things before plastic. As a vintage lover I flipped when I saw this page. Growing up in the time of plastic, I have always dreamt of a world with Resins! I think I'm on my way to the Resin world!

When searching online it became clear to me that this is a new trend in fashion. I am LOVING it! I have always loved the idea of re-creating from vintage inspirations, this is the first time I have seen it in jewelry! It is nice to see things being made from more durable materials.  I featured a few of my favorite pieces. Enjoy!

  8. Rhe, that necklace and those last pair of earrings are killing me! HAHAHA They are gorgeous!

  9. I've bought several resin jewelry pieces lately - I also enjoy the vintage appeal of bakelite, but I don't own any vintage bakelite pieces. I love that yellow Kate Spade necklace up top!
