I think every jewelry dealer who has purchased estate jewelry has one time or another come across these stone charm bracelets; They have always been, IMHO, the ugly step-child of costume jewelry. Countless times, I’ve thrown them in lots for parts as I’ve thought of these as “bad-home-kit-style” jewelry.

But alas, we forthwith have a name for these bracelets. The “DesertGem” jewelry by Paul Klepa of Klepa Arts, West Hollywood, CA. These bracelets now have a home in the annals of vintage costume jewelry.
