With an unparalleled creative composure and brilliant vision, Mark Davis has expertly coupled vintage materials with modern, meticulous design. The marbled tortoise bangle of vintage Bakelite has been polished to its original color. Perfect square cut-outs are precisely spaced along the center surface and inlaid with multi-colored Bakelite squares to create a repetitive pattern. A shimmering pink sapphire is set within each square adding color and sparkle. Alone or worn with some of Mark's other bangles, this piece is a stunning, statement-making piece of jewelry.

NEW YORK - Rare, collectable and often one-of-a-kind, each bangle from Mark's collection is a perfect balance of vintage and modern materials. The vintage Bakelite - one of the first plastics ever made - acquired from estate sales, antique markets and individual dealers has been intensely polished and refurbished to its original color and luster and then set with modern designs of precious and semi-precious bezel set stones.

The marriage of saturated color, sparkling stones and clean, linear patterns create a piece of jewelry like no other. Easy to combine, layer and stack, these bangles are a distinguishable, sophisticated balance of old and new.
