Bakelite jewelry was most popular during the Art Deco period, which began in 1909 and lasted until the 1940s. The pieces were popular during the heyday of the Art Deco period and many of the pieces remain popular today.
Leo Bakeland invented Bakelite in the early 1900s. Bakeland discovered that the material would cool quickly and wouldnt melt, regardless of the temperatures. He took out a patent on the idea in 1907. The material was heated to a melting point and then poured into molds and sheets to create the different pieces.
It was used for a number of things including toys and for electronics parts. Many companies stopped using Bakelite in the early 1940s as the need for World War II related products took hold. By the end of the War, new technologies in the world of plastics had made Bakelite obsolete.
