Product Details

One of Heather (our designer)'s favorite books about mid-centuring plastic jewelry. Inside is a feature about the warehouse manufacturer that Heather & her mother (back when they had a bead store) cleaned out of the bead & hoop stock back in 2004 in Rhode Island. Many of the Leetie Lovendale treasures you purchase today, include parts & components from this same manufacturer who made these bangles.

An alluring dream-book and informative handbook for collectors of plastic bangle bracelets, illustrated with rare and common pieces in a profusion of colors and styles. Gorgeous spreads arranged by designs and techniques introduce the reader to the unexpected riches of this collecting field. 415 color photos showcase thousands of bangles.nToday, when Bakelite and celluloid are snapped up at ever higher prices, many collectors turn to brighter, more playful, and more affordable plastic jewelry from the second half of the 20th century. Until now, collectors of Lucite and other plastic bangles had no information about these attractive collectibles.nChapters cover the identification of plastics, techniques, designers, manufacturers, fakes and knock-offs, and collectible plastics of the future. All have current (ca 2004) market value ranges.
