Lets all play a game together: find the bakelite bangle!
Ok you guys, by now, it should be clear bakelite that hasn't had a treatment (like sanding) ISN'T WHITE!
So the black-WHITE polka dot ones are not bakelite.
In fact, the only bakelite one is the plain black bracelet.
I m still very proud of it though! Its my one and only black bakelite bangle I ever found!
Oh and Im also greedy: I let my mom wait for half an hour for a closed thrift shop door to get me the clear and black striped lucite bangle. I love it!!!
You know, there are other plastics besides bakelite that can be nice and worth it to be collected!
I m sorry, I just had to get this off my chest I guess...Too much fake bakelite posts here on CW were really getting me angry!
Cant they just get it? Bakelite should not be white!
I guess I m all better now :-)
The black and white bangles were a present from my hubby. He clearly didn't get it, but thats ok :-) xxx
