    Bakelite bangle restored cobalt blue

    * This glossy bakelite bangle was a dark and dull teal blue when I bought it. After much sanding and buffing I've restored the exterior wall to it's original cobalt blue color, while leaving the interior as I found it. Sometimes I'm not sure what I'm going to find when I start sanding, but this cobalt blue is sensational! As with all restored bakelite pieces, this bangle will eventually re-oxidize to a darker color, but if carefully handled that should take a good long time.

    * This bangle measures just under 1" wide and is 1/4" thick with an interior opening of 2 1/2".

    * In excellent vintage condition, this bracelet has no nicks, cracks or visible scratches.

    * The interior wall of the bangle tests positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water. The restored exterior wall will test positive within the next six months or so. This bangle will retain its original color longer if stored in the box it's shipped in.

    The bakelite bangles that I've been restoring go very nicely with the autumnal shades found in aged bakelite. They add an interesting note of color and are a reminder of how jewelry was used to lighten difficult times. A wonderful gift for any bakelite lover's collection, this beautiful bangle will be shipped in a gift box.
