  • Details
    Bakelite bangle restored purple chunky asymmetrical bangle

    * Bakelite was originally manufactured in pastels and jewel tones. Over time many of these colors have changed through a process known as oxidization. When I purchased this bangle it was an ugly greenish brown, but after sanding and buffing, look what I found! The color is a beautiful soft lilac and buffing brought out all the highlights in this piece. In the last photo you can see the oxidized color on the interior wall and the contrast between old and new.

    * This asymmetrical bangle goes from 1/4" wide at the bottom to 5/8" wide at the top with the walls measuring over 3/8" thick. The interior opening is 2 1/2" in diameter or 8" around.

    * This gorgeous bangle is in excellent vintage condition. There are no chips or cracks and the sanding process has removed all of the surface scratches. It has been buffed to a nice glossy finish.

    * Prior to sanding this bangle tested positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water. After sanding it still tests positive using hot water and will start to react to simichrome in a few months. This lovely bracelet will be shipped in a tarnish-proof bag, which will help to maintain the fresh color.

    This beautiful restored bangle will add a unique pop of color to your bakelite collection and will be shipped in a gift box.
