Playful and sophisticated, this Matilda bangle bracelet is the perfect embodiment of of Mark Davis' brilliant creativity. The juicy pink marbled bangle has been refurbished to reveal its original character and color. Floral shapes of berry, mauve and pale pink Baklelite have been inlaid and polished to perfection along the circumference of the bracelet. They are each dotted with a bezel set spessartite garnet adding contrast and sparkle to the arrangement. Beautiful alone, but even better coupled with a few of Mark's other bracelets!

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.
