Green is usually the cheapest bakelite or lucite but when your favorite color is green - like mine!! - then you buy 'em and you're sure to wear 'em anyway and everyone asks you where you got 'em and wants them! I made the charm bracelet from my stash of old green buttons. (solder those links - I've been at the club under a table when I thought I heard something fall.) Also in picture a great 2-tone hat pin, 2 lovely carved clips that I found in Silver City for $20!

I like to wear my greens w/my 1950's fitted grey jacket - and of course on my denim jacket and yes w/my black dress and chunky black platforms...

    When I noticed the bracelets with the flat sides I realized I have more of these type of bracelets I could have sent you with the others.

    Thanks Gillian - I have a story about the wide "end of day" spinach bangle 5th from bottom. I wrapped it up for a rockabilly girlfriend's birthday. When I greeted her at the restaurant table with "you will like my present" she bolted up and pushed thru the diners to get to the gift table, opened it in front of everyone and put it on right there. I love it when the present is exactly right and it went to the right new owner.
