Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.140

This Miriam Haskell brooch, which is also a dress clip, is an extremely versatile piece. It 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 the pierced plastic back. Other Frank Hess creations used this Machine Age-design and construction, which allow the elements to move. (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 jewel 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. See my favorite model wearing this brooch as a pendant in this blog post.
