I love how this puppy dog ring came out it is just gorgeous and so unique. A must have for the bakelite or turquoise collector. Gorgeous bakelite in bright red which used to be a serving fork. Bright swarovski crystal eyes. Deeply carved puppy from a fantastic turquoise stone, a huge chunky ring, currently a size 7 but can be sized up to an 8 or 9. I left some of the patina alone in the base of the ring so you can see the difference in what 80 years of aging can create. Carved to match the retro look that was once created back in the 1930s and 1940s, it shows the true beauty of bakelite as it once was first created. Numbered, signed and dated it is a one of a kind to be enjoyed for years to come.
A rare stunning investment worthy one of a kind hand carved retro lux vintage piece.
I only use the good stuff- authentic and tested bakelite from estate finds. My products are all individually hand crafted- one at a time. Each stone, shell, button and bakelite piece is personally selected. Each is collected then cleaned, tumbled, crafted or carved. Every piece I create is unique. I use natural or recycled products either for a given purpose, for fun or a beautiful piece of jewelry. I love the idea of re-use and making something unique and new from something old.
Each piece I create from bakelite or catalin is a new carving of a very old and previously enjoyed material. Newly carved and polished bakelite and catalin will not test positive with the standard tests until it has had a chance to age for about 6 months. The bakelite tests used are tests which reacts to the patina, or aging color, so each freshly carved piece needs a bit of time to age. Often, I will try to leave a portion on the inside uncarved so that you may see the aged patina color and so that you may have a positive test area.
