DESCRIPTION:

This is a beautifully made 1970s - 80's plastic tortoiseshell effect bangle with no seams.

After languishing somewhat during the 1970s plastic jewellery again became fashionable in the 80s. This coincided with the vogue for collecting early bakelite and other vintage jewellery. The plastics used for jewellery in the 1980s were not only smooth but textured as well. Stripes and polka dot patterns were popular, in addition to those imitating animal prints. Tortoiseshell, tiger stripes and leopard patterns are all typical of this period.
