What's with the metal chewing?

For awhile, my dog has been obsessively licking metal objects/areas (floor vent, handle on a cabinet) and recently chewed a bracelet to destruction and ate a pair of earrings. These were selected over things like shoes and athletic bags, his normal go-to items when he gets in chewy moods.
Is it a dietary deficiency? What causes this specific attraction to metal? Otherwise he is eating and drinking as he always has, and is displaying no other odd behaviors.
