I definitely obsessed over Bakelite for a while. Still love these pretty little things and try to wear and enjoy them. I bought these at various auctions. They all tested positive. I also have about a dozen that did not test positive, although look very similar to these. I have never been lucky to get a very chunky cool one at a reasonable price. So I will wait!!

    These are very fun - and your pristal faceted bracelets aren't that easy to find. Love them! About your other dozen that don't test positive - they might be Lucite or some other plastic. I have some too that I'll post later - they look exactly like bakelite don't they? In fact I just bought one from Ruby Lane last wk that was sold as bakelite and was very disappointed. I like the colors in your collection!

    Hey Fluffy, great collection of older bracelets! I have to tell you though that some of these are actually Catalin which is even more valuable than bakelite. The browner ones might be bakelite but I'm pretty sure, without holding them up close, that the other colors could be Catalin. Here's a great article we have used over the recent years to help in the identification of these.

    Sorry, you might have already known about this article.

    Thanks for this info... I actually don't really know about the difference so thanks for the article. I saw your wife's beautiful bracelets too... They are gorgeous...

    Unfortunately I haven't been off having fun somewhere. My 84 yr old mom is facing a couple of medical crises and we've been spending a lot of time traveling back and forth to doctors with her. I think I need to take her to see Dr. Fluffy! I'm sure you can cure Or at least cheer her up!
  17. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 2 years ago
    Awww... Sorry to hear that. I hope she gets well soon...

    Stunning! This is a great collection. I love the colors and hsve attempted to collect sd such for many years. However, I couldn't acquire the knowledge sd to what is as opposed to what isn't.

    Thanks cwpost... I started taking 409 solution with me to garage sales!!!

    Nadia - I've been looking for 30 yrs and I don't have a wide chunky carved bangle either. I only have 1/2", 5/8" a few that are 1". My best bracelet is my yellow and black dot and the beautiful black carved w/metal rivets (which I dropped and broke! so now it's glued and can never be sold) I love bakelite and other old plastic - you know you've seen my stash.

    Val... I am thinking about just buying one... Maybe a XMAS present for myself... :)
