This listing is for ONE Bakelite Style One of a Kind Original creation Resin Bangle made by POLO.
As this bracelet stretches...see the video...it will accommodate wrists from 6 to 8 inches easily.
Handmade by Polo, Beautiful design, checkerboard Red and Black colors. This bracelet has 13 2 inch pieces 5/8 inch wide, alternating colors of black and cherry red. Pieces hand cast, drilled and strung by POLO.
The pieces alternate colors all the way around except where they meet up they are the same.
Remember this is hand made, borderline folk art craftsman.
POLO is also the maker of the Fabulous Hand Cast Doggies I have up for adoption/sale in my shop.
POLO was a contemporary artist who worked all over South Florida.
Please look at photos, since these are hand cast individually there are sometimes threads of the alternating color flowing into the opposite color, this is not very noticeable and to me enhances the individual hand made quality of the piece.
This bracelet is unsigned, I bought this directly from him along with the other bracelets I have available.
Please view photos carefully as they are part of the description.
June 26, 2014 - I received some sad news.
Polo the Florida Artist who created the bracelets and these doggies passed away 3 months ago. I spoke with his wife today, she has told me his wish was that the molds he used to cast the doggies with would be broken. So these are now limited editions she said. I have purchased all the remainder of his stock, even the unfinished pieces and have them polished and set the stones myself. My heart is broken, he was much too young his passing was unexpected, due to complications with his diabetes. All product photos are of the actual item.
