The Half and Half - Black and Red Laminated Saucer Bangle
Hand made Saucer Bangle of the highest quality artisanal resin. Weight and “clunk” sound are similar to vintage Bakelite so they play well with genuine vintage bangle bracelets.
Very limited edition. Made one by one and hand-polished; not “sprayed” for shine like most “fakelites”.
This saucer bangle is 1.5 cm in width. It’s our “Half and Half” style in half black and half red, laminated in perfect glossy finish. The photograph is just an example but is not the exact bracelet you will be receiving. To keep the price affordable we have not photographed each individual bracelet but just an example of the style.
The feel of this vegan resin is delicious to touch and reminiscent of real elephant ivory.
Handmade means that you can expect tiny irregularities that result from workshop-made versus mass-produced factory manufacture. If you find a trait in the bracelet you receive that doesn’t suit you, we encourage you to exchange because each is different, especially the marbled ones! You might find storm clouds, wisps, galaxies, or splatter paint motifs.
You are free to exchange or return any bracelet you don’t love within two weeks of having received it for a full refund providing the handmade box and bracelet are received in new condition when they are returned.
From the designer:
“As a vintage Bakelite admirer, I felt afraid to start collecting. I was afraid I would buy a fake. I didn’t feel well enough educated to understand and evaluate the prices. I wanted enough bangles to play with and create stacks but couldn’t justify hundreds of dollars per bracelet to get in the stack game. I loathed the cheap copies that looked like children’s jewelry.
“When I discovered this particular resin material, I was in love with it for almost 20 years until I finally found a life-long resin craftsman in a small family business with whom too work.
“I also found standard bangle bracelets too big for me so they just were not comfortable. I knew I wanted to make sizes available so everyone could have the size that was comfy to them.”
Small (maiden) 2 1/4″ in diameter

Whirling Turban Saucer Bangles are made in small batches so there is often only make one maiden and one large per style per batch. Due to their handmade nature, please allow up to 2/16th of an inch variation in diameter.
