From the 70′s, would you believe! Galalith (known as French Bakelite), was a popular material for Art Deco jewelry as it was easy to manipulate and perfect for mass production. The master of this plastic jewelry though was a guy from the 1970s called François Schoenlaub, who was so enchanted with the deco jewelry that he travelled to France, bought one of the few remaining Galalith factories and set up his company Guillemette L’Hoir – Paris. For many years he produced pieces for the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
