    2 pretty 3/8" aqua and a gold/white dimentional bangle with metallic foil layers inside. I think they are from the 1950's but would appreciate any help. I've been collecting these type of flexible, lightweight vintage bangles for 30 years and haven't been able to get much information. The designs are layered and all fused together, then chopped of a tube, no seams at all.

    In picture 3 you'll see a gold metallic example - this time the top layer of white dashes sit higher in 3-D fashion. Excuse my wrinkly old fingers :-)

    Probably dime store items. Nice lightweight bangles and they aren't brittle. They have a little flex. On the downside, they can't be subjected to heat: will warp or melt.

      Thanks Ken - yes! Altho I love big honkin gaudy bracelets too, these are favorites when I'm in a quieter mood (ha ha!)

      Thanks friends for loving these translucent beauties: Kevin, Peggy, Ivonne, Mike, Bonnie, Kyra, Gatherer and Roy!

      Thank you lentilka - I love big gaudy bangles, but I tend to wear these sweet quiet bangles most of the time because they are easy.

      Thank you Bijou - yes, the colors are very nice.

      Thanks friends Ken, Aura, Mani, Jean :-)

      Eileen - thank you so much for LOVING PLASTICS! These are not the Leah Stein plastic - more flexible - not as strong, but wouldn't they go nice with the cat pin!?

      Thanks friends for your loves - aura, lentilka, Rick, Eyeforit, Elisabeth, Phil, Sean, Jenni and Malkey!
