Newtimes, this is for you. Here are some of my favorite clip-on earrings. The third photo shows plastic bangles I found over the last few months. I don't know anything about them; I just liked the colours and designs. They look great with summer dresses.

Thanks for looking :)

    I love the green, yellow and orange earrings!
    The green translucent bracelet looks exactly the same as a bakelite bracelet I have. You should test it with simichrome. Maybe its also bakelite.
    The white celluloid bracelet with carved flowers is great!
    Thanks for showing your collection!

    Thanks Newtimes. The little white one might be a reproduction. It is vintage - but reminds me of Victorian carved coral. Too bad it is not coral :(
    I have seen many bakelite pieces of jewelry on line but never in reality; so I don't think I would recognize it even if it bit me. But I do remember that, when I was a child, bakelite was not valued at all. Funny how times have changed. :)

    You have some fun bracelets - the green ones that look translucent might be Lucite moonglow from the 60's. Also the yellow mottled bottom row left and red top row right might be Lucile - they could be bakelite - I can't tell. The earrings are darling! I agree w/Newtimes - the carved white is probably celluloid - and it is from the 50's-60's. Very FUN!

    I just hate my misspelled words. Sorry not Lucile - that is someone else entirely - I meant Lucite.

    Thanks so much, valentino97! Never mind the spelling. I do that all the time because my mind is faster than my fingers:)
    The bracelets you mentioned are actually the once I got for next to nothing. They show some wear but I just loved them anyway.
