a bevy of bracelets

Joseph Brooks makes semi-precious stone bracelets in his Los Angeles studio.
His unusual gems are cut to his specifications. I am wearing dumortierite . . .
for patience.

Regina Barrios, the designer of Ishi jewelry from Mexico, has introduced a striking
modern group of silver bracelets set with semi-precious stones.

Anna e Alex bracelets from Italy feature exquisitely delicate cameos, hand carved
from sardonyx shell by skilled traditional artisans in Torre del Greco.

From Lapland, Swedish Saami tribal bracelets by Hanna Wallmark are crafted of leather with intricate pewter silver threadwork and antler buttons.
