Green Bead 2-Strand French 1950s Necklace
Longer strand with clasp: 16 1/2"; shorter strand with clasp: 15 1/4"; largest bead: 1/2"
"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.
