    They really look like delicious candy, don't they?
    So now you have to guess which one is the lucite one!
    No, I posted the two green ones and the yellow one earlier here on CW. I found them together two years ago, again for one euro each. I tested them and they are bakelite (clear bakelite is called prystal I presume). The red one was a recent find. Its just lucite, but it matches the other bracelets beautifully. You cant tell the difference when you see them together, its remarkable. I really enjoy wearing them as a bunch. I only wear them when I m not working though, because typing is hard when you wear bangles!
    I hope you enjoy them.

      I love them:) No wonder I cannot tell the difference when I see them. They look the same! I wear lots of vintage plastic bangles - but only in the summer. In the winter, they seem to interfere with my sweaters:(

      Freiheit I know what you mean - 3/4" sleeves aren't that easy to find.

      Newtimes - what yummy bracelets - they look like gum drops! No you can't tell which are bakelite and which is Lucite - I'm not a snob, I wear them both together if they work that way....

      Nadia - your collection is pretty yummy too! I love both your clear prystal bracelets. I might have ONE humble example to share.

      I totally agree, typing is just way too difficult when I'm wearing my Bangals too ;)

      Hey Val was that compliment for me? Thank you very much. I have been very lucky in finding some bakelite lately.
      Thx, Nina
