This wood bead brooch is typical of the type of whimsical pieces designed by Frank Hess for Miriam Haskell during World War II. At the top, the coffee-bean-shaped beads form flower petals that surround small round beads with gilt-metal caps. They are all hand-sewn onto a pierced, flat metal foundation. From there, a riot of beads dangle from gilt-metal links attached to three braided-silk cords. This brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is in remarkable condition and fun to wear!
