    These are some bakelite or catalin items I've had for 20 years or so. You might recognize them from earlier posts.

    Last year Newtimes told me about an Etsy shop that restored bakelite. I found some interesting green and white mottled bracelets on their site - all refinished to delicate jade-like hues. I think my pieces might have started their lives much lighter perhaps appealing to a 1940's or 50's housewife who could not afford jade. I love the colors they are now.

      Thank you Phil for your nice comment.

      Thank you Newtimes. I enjoy looking at that etsy store and I'm tempted to send something in for restoration if I can get a better deal on his prices. Thanks for your compliment - I'm missing a kick-ass red bracelet. Hope I find one in 2014.
    7. Newtimes Newtimes, 7 years ago
      I hope 2014 will be a great year for finding bakelite for both of us!

      Nadia - I found these bracelets for $8.00 total about 10 yrs ago at a Goodwill in Omaha. Chunkier spacers don't you think?
    9. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Thanks bobogal - I like the darker green better.

      Luv ya too my dear sweet friend.
      I have a couple bracelets you might want.
      I'll email photos to you.
    20. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Thanks Aim - would like to see your bracelets. Happy New Year - keep warm!
    21. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Val, have you preformed the smell test on your pieces?
    22. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Yes - run some hot water and rub them. It will give off a certain chemical smell. Mostly I use simichrome which gives off a yellow discharge. If you have a metal polish you can use a little bit of it and might get the same result.
    23. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      I just did the hot water test, if it is Bakelite, I'm not smelling it.
    24. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Could be Lucite - which are very nice too, but don't have a smell.
    25. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Either way they're yours if you want them. just email me your address.
    26. inky inky, 7 years ago

      nuts - I don't like calling you nuts, do you have another nickname for me to use? Thank you! I just bought another spinach green bangle on ebay. When I get it I'll let you know if it is bakelite or not. Wasn't too expensive. Thank you for enjoying my stuff!
