Five strands of milk-glass beads in varying sizes are twisted into a torsade, with a sixth strand in the center. The tongue-in-groove clasp is topped with a white glass button. This lovely necklace by the incomparable Louis Rousselet is actually signed on the back of the clasp – a true rarity. (Most of this maker’s pieces had only a hang tag rather than the maker’s mark on the piece itself.) I have other lovely French pieces by or in the style of this maker — scroll down to see them.
