    I found during a trip Oct. 2017 in Astoria, Oregon and thought they were lucite, but happily surprised after testing including simichrome - bakelite. Originally with end-pin wire but I found them broken and put silver fittings after cleaning them up. Beautiful 2" size - lovely translucent swirls. I have 2 bracelets that are close: a swirly bakelite spacer and 1" cocoa color lucite that will do for now :-)

    The last image is a painting called "Eugene" from Lance Wood Hart, 1933 from the Portland Art Museum.

      Thank you Jenni - I went to Oregon for my birthday and had great weather and good junking too :-)

      Thank you Phil for your love!

      Very nice earrings.. Quite a find.
      The painting is outstanding.
      Reminds me of an orchard I once owned.
      After a fun night of partying, having to go pick a load
      16 boxes x 40 lbs. The trees kinda looked that way those mornings! Ha!
      Seriously though, I LOVE IT!

      Thank you Eileen! I think Elisabethan or Newtimes has the matching bracelet - and someday hopefully I will :-) Love this painting too and your remembrance!

      Thanks friends for the loves: Phil, Fort, Hel1, Judy :-)

      Thank you Elisabeth! I think you might have this same color. Very delicate which is why I added the painting :-)

      I love the earrings as well as the painting! The silver fittings were a perfect fix!

      Thank you betweenthelens - the original head pin had broken off inside one of the hoops, so I had to do this cage idea w/the split ring. But, thank you! At least they are wearable now. Now I need the matching bracelet :-) And, isn't that an amazing painting?

      I'll keep a lookout for a matching bracelet for you. You never know what you'll run across here in the consignment shop. It's got to be the best consignment shop I've ever frequented. The painting is amazing. It fills me with nostalgia for things I didn't even know I was nostalgic about. THAT is great art! :)

      Hi betweenthelens - great to hear from you. I added the bracelets so you can see what I have now. And I felt that way about the painting too. So beautiful :-)
