Resin jewellery is made from liquid plastic that magically turns solid when a hardener is added. The most collectible resin bangles are generally the ones like this with intricate designs.
The costume jewellery industry flourished in the 1980s, and women experienced a new freedom and confidence to wear frankly fake fashion jewellery. In fact, the bigger and glitzier the better! After falling out of fashion in the 1970s plastics were again popular for personal ornaments. These new items were made in every colour of the rainbow as well as fancy spotted, striped and patterned effects.
