How Was Polka Dot Bakelite Made?

Vintage polka-dot bakelite bangle bracelets started with the plain bangle bracelet. The polka dot area is then cut out and a bakelite disk is perfectly inserted into the hole that was created.

You can usually run your finger over the edge of the polka dots and feel a tiny edge there. It will look totally flush with the bangle if it was properly done but you can usually feel it.
