Description

This Bakelite jewelry helps document the story of a country and its allies working together to restore world peace. Images of pins, necklaces, bracelets, and more capture these true signs of the timesnot only crafted to express solidarity, loss, patriotism, and love, but to make use of a new material that was not restricted by rationing and conservation orders. From sweetheart pins and pins emblazoned with MacArthurs famous, I shall return, to pieces with reticulating moveable parts, the range of colorful jewelry captured in this book is perfect for those passionate about Bakelite jewelry and for WWII buffs. Although these Bakelite treasures were fashioned with the patriotic inspiration of the time, they can still be collected and fashionably worn today, as demonstrated in a chapter called Wearing Ideas.
