    Bakelite bracelet restored bakelite bakelite bangle

    * In the 1920's bakelite was manufactured in browns and black. In the 1930's the move to color began and the jewelry was made in pastel shades and jewel tones. The autumnal tones you see in bakelite today are the result of how the formaldehyde, dyes and fillers aged over time. As much as I enjoy the beauty of these aged bangles, the original colors are also beautiful and enjoyable.

    * In order to reach the original color of this bangle I've sanded off the layers of oxidization and buffed it to a nice glossy finish. In this case, underneath a light orange and yellow marble lay this soft and stunning pink cotton candy marble. I've only sanded the exterior of this bangle, so you can still see the oxidized color on the interior wall.

    * This refinished dome bangle measures 1/2" wide, 1/4" thick and has the standard 2 1/2" diameter opening.

    * This bakelite bangle is in excellent vintage condition. The sanding process has removed all surface scratches and it has no nicks or cracks. This piece and all refinished bakelite should be stored in a dark place in order to slow down the aging process.

    * The interior wall was not sanded and tests positive for bakelite using simichrome and hot water. The exterior wall will test positive for bakelite within a few months after sanding.

    These beautiful original colors look great when worn alone or in combination with the autumnal colors of your oxidized bangles. A great addition to any bakelite lover's collection, this piece will be shipped in a gift box.
