Here is the bangle chapter of my bakelite collection (so far), I like to get the pieces out every 6 months or so and photograph them to see how it's coming along. Is that sad? I don't care. They're pretty.
My favourite pieces are the black 'basket weave' carved bangle, the Jakob Bengel-esque cherry red piece with enamel and chrome buckle, the deeply carved floral black piece, lathe carved teal prystal, and the most recent additions of the pair of chunky stardust bangles (which were a total STEAL). Plus my first ever bakelite find, the chunky red 2nd from the top of the central stack, which I picked up from a car boot- relatively unheard of here in the UK!
I'm currently restoring the Pierrot carved piece on the right stack, as it's missing all the rhinestones. It will be fabulous when finished!
