Lucite: Eighty Years Later

I admit that I never thought I would make jewelry with Lucite. Then I found some 80 year old vintage Lucite beads. After so many years, they develop chatoyancy, a cat’s eye phenomena seen mostly in gems and translucency. Their reflectance can be seen across the room.

I did not shy away from pairing these amazing gems with sterling silver.

I listed them today on my Etsy shop, SusanDolphinDelaney.

Lucite is light weight and waterproof, perfect for the office and the beach.
