    Early birthday present from a friend who knows I love bakelite! She knew this wasn't real, but what fun and I love it! 2" wide with light apple juice center - carved. My pictures are a little too yellow, actually a light nude. Bright orange borders on this perfect bangle (bright spots are camera glare). We think it is resin from the 1970's because it has a 2.5" opening. Most newer plastic bangles are 2.75". Somebody did the harmful hot pin test to see if it was bakelite. I will treat this carefully since resin scratches easy. It's softer than bakelite, lucite, celluloid.

    I love October, I love Orange! I love Plastic!

      Happy birthday Mary!! What a nice bracelet. It was probably not "fake" then but just another plastic next to bakelite :). Very nice indeed!
