    More details : Slices of horn were dipped in hydrogen peroxide to make them translucent, then bathed in chemicals to give a shimmering sheen to the wings or a rosy sheen to the petals. The pendants, sculpted and dyed with inks, were mounted on silk ribbons, cords or chains with pastel glass beads repeating the delicate hues. Elisabeth Bonté and Georges Pierre G.I.P., initially rivals, pooled their resources and talents before producing horn jewelry until 1936, when Bakelite became the preferred material for costume jewelry.
