    2 gorgeous finds a few years ago online for under $20 each. I wanted wide red bangles and these were offered as bakelite. I kept asking the seller what they were and finally felt confident that they were new resin or acrylic. The price was right so why not. Yes, I tested them - not bakelite. I've worn the 1-5/8" with concentric carving the most. I have to dress up a little for work at retail accounts and shopping malls so I'm not nervous about banging or chipping these. The other one is 2-1/8" - gaudy - yes, but looks great with my black work uniform. I've never seen these at retail so they are nice limited-production bangles.

    Both these were for sale online as bakelite, so be careful. In the past few years I've challenged sellers but there's still a few out there listed at $250. The other colors were yellow, orange and green. I don't think black was offered online.

      They absolutely are gorgeous. I never find anything nice in plastic around here. Always junk.

      Thanks Bonnie - I had to go online for these! You found a pretty fabulous red bakelite necklace last year that would work with my uniform :-)

      Thanks Elisabeth. I don't know everything (lol), but I do a lot of research before I challenge sellers.

      Thanks Kyra, yes they are very me :-)

      Thanks Ken, I dig the old plastic fantastic - as you know LOL. I'm researching another type of plastic that I've collected for the past 15 years....still not too sure of what I have. When I get the newest purchase from ebay, I will post all 17 of them.

      Thanks friends for the loves: Fort, Kevin, Mike, Aura, Phil, Roy, Scott, Jenny, Nicefice and sklo42!
