    I'm not sure if this is plastic (probably!) or something else. No seams that I could find. Not exactly high quality, lol! I looked through Google Images but didn't find any Giraffe print bangles resembling this one.

    1970s? 1980s? I dunno.

    Thanks for stopping to see my bangle.

      I think it might be newer than you hope. Plastic? Very interesting print. If I had it I would wear it with my real horn bracelets.

      val - I had an idea that it might be on the newer side, but I figured I'd wait for you to come along. It looks like plastic but doesn't have that telltale seam on the inside.

      :-))))

      I do a lot of online searching for vintage plastics and this example has never caught my eye. It could be a quality designer piece which means there isn't much of it out there - or it could be horn - dyed and lightly carved. Will keep looking and let you know.

      thanks! :-)))))

      If this was a shell bracelet - it would be a wonderful important find. I'm always looking for those items too. :-)

      @val - I changed the last photo and put up one with a close up of the inside. Maybe that's helpful. The material is cold against my cheek and is slow to absorb warmth. There is a very similar bracelet in another thrift shop with the same colors but a different design. That bracelet has the tell tale seam down the middle of the inside. It resembles my Lea Stein bangle bracelet posted here.

      Looks Asian to me

      Nice chunky piece!
      From last pic, it isn't molded but cut!
    9. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 3 years ago
      Pascale - yes, it is cut rather than molded. A bit bizarre, lol!
    10. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 3 years ago
      Steptoe1 - what about it looks Asian to you?
    11. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      interesting

      Looks wood or bone from the texture inside and along the edges. If it's cold, bone would be more likely. One test might be to heat it up to about 140 degrees. If it cools quickly it's probably plastic.
    13. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 3 years ago
      gardinerth - it's definitely not bone. I know the characteristics of bone jewelry.
