      I have seen these before and believe charms were factory molded and could you buy these charm bracelets . Hoping someone with more knowledge in jewelry chimes in . Very cool bracelet !

      I have seen the referred to as trench art WWII . But because they all seem to have same exact charms it seems as they were put in a machine to be bent and stamped like this . It is vintage and wonderful .

      I can see some are your bracelet are different but he other on's O have seen have exact same charms , So they must have been heated and put in a press or poured into a mold . It is very cool I agree !
      here are a few
