This articulated Art Deco bracelet consists of alternating links of steel and Bakelite that have oblong, flat bottoms and domed surfaces. The triangular Bakelite links alternate between being upturned and inverted, creating a visual zig-zag pattern. Seven clear rhinestones are channel-set in each steel link. The necklace fastens around the neck with a tab-insert closure.
