Table of Contents

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 times--not 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 MacArthur's 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."

5 of 5 LOVE THIS BOOK March 30, 2012
Reviewer: pippin lake from los angeles, CA United States  
Really beautiful photography. Great collection and a wonderful story. I really think this is a great modern looking book and the nicest one as far as design is concerned by Schiffer. The author did a wonderful job, highly recommend.

5 of 5 Increadible collection, great book. December 20, 2011
Reviewer: heidi felene from New York,NY United States  
I do believe this is the most lovely bakelite book I have! Also particularly special is the approach the author took relating particular pieces to what was occuring at the time in the world. I also enjoyed the discussion regarding the modernist art movement and design. Some of the pieces I have seen but many are so individually special. I would love to find one of these.
