    Part of jewelry swap I did with martika (she is a dear one indeed!!).
    What do you think about the bracelet? to me it does not look like celluloid, too heavy for that
    The rose brooch is Sarah Cov.

      The truth is I don't know anything about plastics. But I'm eager to learn!!! :)
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      I love the owl pendant!
    3. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      Efesgirl, you have keen eye
      martika, check the mail I wrote you, pls
    4. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      Efesgirl, can the owlet be considered as jelly belly?
    5. pebble pebble, 5 years ago
      I absolutely LOVE the malachite brooch at the end!
    6. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      Thank you pebble! That is probably a Miracle brooch, similar one is to be found here:

      Is that actually petrified resin in the owl pendent? Looks like an inclusion of an insect, or something, is it sterling?
    8. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 5 years ago
      I like the copper look?, brooch, looks old, nice!
    9. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      no inclusion, could be glass or amber in my opinion (not sure). looks like sterling, the chain is marked sterling on the ring as well
    10. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      billretirecoll, thank you, the copper one is amazing as well!
    11. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 5 years ago
      That's what I meant Amber, couldn't think of that. Just what it is petrified tree pitch/resin. :^)

      Great to be near enough to swap! Exciting pieces :-)

      For Jelly Belly, interesting writeup on the CW category:

      My favorite is the copper brooch, and I love the "miracle" brooch too!

      Recently saw a bangle like yours - but I can't find it again online. I think this is fairly new. It was made in homage to bakelite. But, it's not because the white would have oxidized over the years to a mellow ivory or butter. Not Lucite (because dots were usually shiny too, your's is a carved item), not celluloid (too bulky). My guess is resin or acrylic plastic. I wish I could pin it down for you - could be as old as 1960's or brand new. One other thought to confuse you further: ethnic jewelry was so popular starting in the 80's. Horn, bone, carved, dyed, usually a large opening 2-5/8"and larger for the "one size fits all" world we now live in. LOL

      And what a FUN swap with martika!

      Hey valentino97, you're right the bangle is carved out. I just noticed that under magnification, it does almost look like dyed and carved bone, or something like it. Interesting!

      I love the ( Canadian ) Maple leaf Pin - Is it Sterling?
    17. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      valentino97 - thank you!!! very interesting!!!
    18. lentilka11, 5 years ago
      antiquerose, thank you! The earrings are not sterling. I like them much!!
