    Found a near match to my favourite bakelite bangle. My first of these bangles is blue/green in color with swirls. The new bangle is more towards green and yellow. I think they go well together. My guess is that they were both blue from the start with white swirls, a bit "ocean like". They have turned more yellow over time, caracteritic for bakelite. Blue and yellow looks green as known. The latest bangle has probably been more exposed to sunlight. Only paid 1 dollar for it at a fleemarket so that is fine :)

      Thank you lentilka! Yes it would be nice with blue. Although I wouldn't want have these "renovated". I like what time does to bakelite.

      Really nice! Great to find a second bangle in these light blue/yellow/green tones. I rarely find these light "ocean" colors. Great price!

      These pieces would have had colouring added while pouring in the mould and make these incredible colours and pieces unique !~
