18 All done in the Russian gold color, the balls on the ends are decorated with montees.
19 There are four different chains here. All long, as you can see.
I was wearing three of these, including the pink one, in Rhode Island at the last VFCJ convention. Larry Vrba came up to me and pointed to my necklaces and said "I made that." I'd say that is a pretty definite ID on a Haskell piece.
He was talking about the pink one. As you can see, that pink necklace has chains that match exactly one of the other chains on the neck form.
20 You can see the different designs, and all the clasps with marks are here.
21 THis is a collection of the Haskell Russian gold earrings.
22 The backs of those earrings.
23 One of my favorites. I purchased the necklace from Louise Champion. It is documented in Sheila and Cathy's book on page 137.
24 This coral brooch goes with the coral set that is shown in photo #23 and #26.
25 Tha back of the unsigned brooch.
26 The bracelet is unsigned, but I purchased this one from Cathy Gordon, and I think that will authenticate it. :) The earrings are coral, but they are not Miriam Haskell. They just look good with the set.
41 This necklace came from Sheila, and was probably made by Robert Clark. According to Sheila, he came from a fine jewelry background and liked a more finished look and often soldered some filigree components together for a more finished look.
42 The necklace is about 17" long.
45 Signed with a one sided hang tag.
46 Once again....I wanted something to wear with this necklace, and I went to Millie. She created this wonderful bracelet and earrings to go with my R. Clark necklace.
47 They look wonderful together.
Most of the bracelet and earring elements match the necklace exactly.
48 The marks on the backs of the bracelet and earrings.
49 This is my latest from Sheila. I do love the yellows and this one is yellow/amber color.
50 Page 202 of the book by Sheila and Cathy.
The necklace is again, by Robert Clark c.1960.
51 Clip earrings match the necklace.
52 To quote Sheila, "Citrine colored baguettes, rhinestones, gilt stampings and fancy shaped Rousselet pale amber and citrine colored beads."
55 This is an unsigned Miriam Haskell that I just bought and had restrung by Millie Petronzio.
56 The necklace was really wonky in the stringing department....I was afraid to wear it. Millie did a great job, even doing the good backstring technique. She had to remove the plates on the backs of the front circle designs to attach the beads.
58 My plea for more parts to this set worked....here are the earrings purchased from Bob Brown. They are screwbacks and are not marked. All the pieces in this parure are unsigned, but verified Miriam Haskell by Cathy Gordon and Sheila Pamfiloff.
59 Here is the matching lariat and wrap bracelet.
60 These pieces were created in the 1930's and have survived very well. My necklace was restrung by Millie and this bracelet and the lariat were also restored by Millie.
61 Just a close up of the wonderful bracelet.
62 The lariat has no clasp....it has clips on the backs of the focals. You can put this around your neck and clip it to your neckline, or to a collar, or maybe even a pocket.
63 This is the back of the lariat focals, and the inside of the bracelet.
64 This is a fabulous crystal, glass, and baroque Niki pearl set. It is to die for.
65 The bracelet is a wrap bracelet which is really hard to grasp when you see a photo of it. It just looks like a pile of beads. When on, it is a fabulous drapey, drippy bracelet.
66 The pearls are a gorgeous gray and are finely textured. The crystals are a pale yellow and the tiny yellow flowers are pate de verre.
96 I just love this pink set. The beads are all pate de vere glass, and it was made by Larry Vrba in the early 1970's. This necklace and earring set is very wearable. Long enough to be comfortable, and it can be worn with anything.
102 I just bought this necklace on EBay, and of course, I'm looking for the bracelet. If you have anything, please let me know.
They are all remarkable. - carol, Mon, 18 Jul 2011 6:10AM
I remember my grandmother wearing those beaded white clip on earrings almost everyday in the summer when I was a little girl. I think it was my first awareness of the importance of ACCESSORIES !..:)) - anne | www.casavero.com, Sun, 17 Jul 2011 9:56AM
