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.
