I found this bangle last month for $5 because it was missing 6 rhinestones (someone must have played w/it!). The original rhinestones are an unusual size (3/16") and a wonderful light aqua blue I knew I couldn't match. One of our readers davyd286- gave me Mr. Stones website where I found some aqua, clear and light topaz-brown vintage or vintage-repro rhinestones that were the perfect size. I think it turned out really beautiful. Pictures aren't very good - hard to capture the rhinestones different colors. Makes a very good addition to my bakelite collection.

Thank you davyd286.

    Can't wait to see your collection! I have a lot of green because that wasn't a very popular color (red and black are most expensive aren't they?) I have a lot posted and still run across more all the time. Luckily green is MY favorite color so I have quite a bit of it. Thanks for your comments and LOVE!

    An identical off-white bakelite bangle just sold for $31. I bid on it but went too high for my budget.
