Speaking of Bella Lugosi, just look at this COUNT DRACULA BAKELITE PIN by contemporary jewelry artist Brad Elfrink. It is too much fun, as it is mechanical, too. The Vampire's lady victim tilts up in his arms so that he can bite her neck!

Brad is so creative, with some really detailed designs in his pieces. He carves chunks of vintage bakelite into one-of-a-kind investment art. His ebay name is bael31, and you can see some of his work on his ebay me page.
I don't know him, and he has plenty of customers, but I just enjoy his pieces so much, I wanted to share them here.
