"MADE IN FRANCE"

Graduated glass beads in a soft-green with swirls of color form this two-strand French 1950s necklace. I think it was made by Louis Rousselet. (As you may know, few of his pieces were signed directly on the jewelry – instead, a paper hang tag was used.) The clasp, which is the type he typically used, is topped with his well-known button-shaped bead. This necklace from my personal collection was recently professionally restrung. And best of all, I actually have a pair of pendant earrings with matching green-glass beads – scroll down to see them. These pieces look fabulous together!

    Green Bead Czech Chandelier Earrings

    , ,
    These fabulous Czech Art Deco chandelier earrings are fashioned from green-glass beads with white striations, brass chains, and diamanté-embellished brass ornaments. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I bought these long earrings for my personal collection. To my astonishment, the beads match the green in the 2-strand necklace by Louis Rousselet – scroll down to see it. The two look great together!
