Reference

Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.82

These Miriam Haskell earrings with milk glass beads and disks, rhinestone rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine Age look and associated movement. However, the French clips date them to the late-1940s. I still consider these earrings to be Art Deco in style, and I’ve seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier pieces. Whatever the style, these ear clips are lots of fun! Scroll down to see some coordinating pieces in milk glass as well as a dress clip/brooch designed by Frank Hess in the same motif.

    Milk Glass & Seashell 1970s Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This 1970s necklace of milk glass beads and white sea shells was made later than my usual 1920-1960 scope, but this piece is so whimsical that I bought it anyway. This necklace can be worn long, doubled or even tripled! It closes with a slide clasp. This piece works well with some of my other milk glass pieces, including a pair of earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.

    Ruby Bead & Rondelle 1940s Clip/Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , , ,
    This Miriam Haskell brooch, which is also a dress clip, has deep-red glass beads with rhinestone rondelles in silver metal findings. This motif is very Machine Age and one that Frank Hess used in other types of pieces. (Scroll down to see a similar pair of earrings.) I bought this piece from Haskell expert Cathy Gordon, who indicated that the pin stem was added to the dress clip at a later date. In addition to wearing this piece as a clip or brooch, you can wear it as a pendant on a black cord (shown in the last photo) or on a silver or white-gold chain. The 17" black cord shown is included with this purchase.
