A textured Russian-gold wreath embellished with blue, green, red and yellow glass beads forms the top of this whimsical 1930s brooch by Frank Hess for Miriam Haskell. Note that the beads were hand-sewn onto the pierced metal foundation. Dangling tubes and beads in the same colors finish the piece. It closes with a simple C-clasp. Primary colors never looked so good!
