Reference

Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.140

This Miriam Haskell brooch, which is also a dress clip, has deep-red glass beads separated by rondelles and small flat beads in silver metal findings. A World War II-style dress clip is attached to a pierced plastic back. Frank Hess used this Machine Age-style in other designs. (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 probably 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.

    Milk Glass Bead, Diamanté & Gold 1940s Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    , ,

    These Miriam Haskell earrings with milk glass beads and disks, rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine-Age-look and associated movement. However, the use of French ear clips dates them to no earlier than the late-1940s. The use of white beads possibly takes them into the next decade, when white jewelry was popular. I still consider this pair to be Art Deco in style, and I’ve seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier pieces. Whenever they were made, 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.
