I found these at a thrift store in Omaha on the same day sometime in 1980 and I am sure they are from 1950s but there are no markings. Altho the pearl one is flashier w/beads/rhinestones on butterfly face w/gold chain and pearl drops I like the blue one better. It has lovely blue/white rhinestone beads and clear 3-row rhinestone bar. Last picture shows my pale blue stone onyx? carved Mexican sterling bracelet I like to wear beaded with. Haven't seen these in my research books - does anyone know more?

    These are known as memory wire bracelets or wrap bracelets. A personal favorite of mine. Yours are amazing much more elaborate then most. I think the pearl & gold tassel one is made by Hobe & the other may be as well. Miriam Haskell also made really amazing memory wire bracelets and the blue moonstone one reminds me of a necklace attributed to Haskell. Regardless of who made them they are fantastic! I am pea green with envy:)
