This brooch matches the bracelet in the next set of photos, and that bracelet is by Frank Hess, done in the second half of the 1950's.

Both match the necklace in Cera's book page 128.

Signed with the older horseshoe plaque.  The brooch is 3" long.

Closeup of the horseshoe.  Horseshoe mark started in 1948.

Enlarge photo 4
This bracelet consists of double layered flower petals covered in rose montee's.  12 chains.

Enlarge photo 5
Done by Frank Hess in the 1950's.  I purchased this one from Sheila Pamfiloff.

Enlarge photo 6
The bracelet is 7 1/2" long.

Enlarge photo 7
Also from Sheila, is this wonderful leaf necklace and earring set.

I think it is also a design by Frank Hess.

One reason I bought this one, is the wonderful chain designs.

Enlarge photo 10
Here showing the hook with the name on it.  The necklace is 17" long.

Enlarge photo 11
I had inquired about the necklace, when Sheila came across these earrings.  They match the necklace perfectly even though they were made by Haskell at a later date.

They hang 3 1/4" and they make a nice sound when worn.

Enlarge photo 12
There are 8 strands of these grey/cream niki pearls.  The necklace is 16" long.

Enlarge photo 13
Mark on the back of the clasp.

Enlarge photo 14
The earrings came with the necklace, so I have always kept them together.  The pearl is the same color and they fit the necklace just right.

Enlarge photo 15

Enlarge photo 16
These earrings are spectacular.  They are 4" long.

Enlarge photo 17
Montees drip down from "leaves" and the hanging parts are sort of twisted ropes, with rhinestone strands twined into the ropes.

All done in the Russian gold color, the balls on the ends are decorated with montees.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 20
You can see the different designs, and all the clasps with marks are here.

Enlarge photo 21
THis is a collection of the Haskell Russian gold earrings.

Enlarge photo 22
The backs of those earrings.

Enlarge photo 23
One of my favorites.  I purchased the necklace from Louise Champion.  It is documented in Sheila and Cathy's book on page 137.

Enlarge photo 24
This coral brooch goes with the coral set that is shown in photo #23 and #26.

Enlarge photo 25
Tha back of the unsigned brooch.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 27
Just love this color combination.

This red, white and blue necklace is fun.  The white beads are plastic, the red spacers are glass, and the multicolor beads are plastic with glass squares on them.

Enlarge photo 29
I am looking for Haskell earrings that might go with this necklace.  I want some with all three colors on them.  If you have some for sale....let me know.

Judy's email

Enlarge photo 30
I love this set.  Done by Larry Vrba and pictured in the book by Cera, page 203.  It says about 1973.

Enlarge photo 31
The necklace is long....31 1/2".

Enlarge photo 32
These are from Sheila.  A white choker necklace and bracelet.

Unsigned.  Done is the late 1940's to early 1950's.  Rows of white beads and rose montees wrap around the memory wire necklace and hinge bracelet.

Enlarge photo 33
The hook is probably a replacement.

In Sheila's and Cathy's book, page 167.

Enlarge photo 34
These are some earrings that I picked up to wear with the white set.  Three pairs, two of them are Haskell.  Can you tell which one isn't?

Enlarge photo 35
Here are the marks on the earrings.  If you selected the white seed bead earrings, you would be right.  They aren't marked.

Enlarge photo 36
I bought these earrings on Ebay.  My birthday is in August and I always love the peridot stone.  The stones aren't real peridot, but they are the color.

I wanted something to go with these, so got in touch with Millie Petronzio, and the next photo shows what she came up with.

Enlarge photo 37
She made this bracelet to go with the earrings.

Enlarge photo 38
Isn't it gorgeous!

Another one of my favorites.

Back of the earrings.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 42
The necklace is about 17" long.

Enlarge photo 43

Enlarge photo 44

Enlarge photo 45
Signed with a one sided hang tag.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 47
They look wonderful together.

Most of the bracelet and earring elements match the necklace exactly.

Enlarge photo 48
The marks on the backs of the bracelet and earrings.

Enlarge photo 49
This is my latest from Sheila.  I do love the yellows and this one is yellow/amber color.

Enlarge photo 50
Page 202 of the book by Sheila and Cathy.

The necklace is again, by Robert Clark c.1960.

Enlarge photo 51
Clip earrings match the necklace.

Enlarge photo 52
To quote Sheila, "Citrine colored baguettes, rhinestones, gilt stampings and fancy shaped Rousselet pale amber and citrine colored beads."

Enlarge photo 55
This is an unsigned Miriam Haskell that I just bought and had restrung by Millie Petronzio.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 57
A simple clasp that is a push in type.  

Judy's email

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 59
Here is the matching lariat and wrap bracelet.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 61
Just a close up of the wonderful bracelet.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 63
This is the back of the lariat focals, and the inside of the bracelet.

Enlarge photo 64
This is a fabulous crystal, glass, and baroque Niki pearl set.  It is to die for.

Enlarge photo 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.

Enlarge photo 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.

This necklace can be seen in the Haskell book by Cera on Page 131.  It is also in Cathy and Shelia's book on page 173.
Looking back on my choices...it seems that I do love the yellows!

Enlarge photo 68
The mark on the earring back.  The set was created in the 1950's.

Enlarge photo 69
This is just a nice simple necklace by Miriam Haskell.  It is a turquoise color with little flecks in the bead to make it look like real turquoise.

Enlarge photo 70
The necklace has a push in type clasp with one bead on it.  The other little beads are the Russian gold color metal beads.

This is a sad barouque pearl necklace that has gone to Millie's hospital.  She is working on it now, and I will post the repaired photo when I get the necklace back.

Enlarge photo 83
The clasp part is the worst.  I think that's glue on the two ends...to hold the strings onto the jump ring.  Ugh.

Enlarge photo 84
After.  This necklace is 40" long, and the niki pearls are the dark gray ones used long ago.  The necklace is happy now....clean and ready to go again.

Enlarge photo 85

Enlarge photo 86
I think you can see a difference in the clasp.  It works, and the glue is gone.  Yay!  Love that Millie, she is a peach.

Enlarge photo 87

Enlarge photo 88
I bought these earrings on Ebay....they are the exact pearl gray as the necklace.

Enlarge photo 89
This one is an Ebay find.  The bracelet is all glass crystals.  It looks blurry in this photo, but if you click on it, it sharpens right up.

Enlarge photo 90
The clasp has rhinestones on it.  Click on this photo to sharpen it.

Enlarge photo 91
This one is glass with the large beads of resin.  I love those flat glass beads, and I'm looking to find some black glass earrings with those same glass beads.

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.

I talked to Millie Petronzio, and she told me that she did indeed make this necklace.  It is the same one, in different colors, as the set in Cathy and Sheila's book on page 230.

Millie was the original designer of this piece....she started with Haskell in the 1980's.

I can't imagine the work that went into this piece....there are zillions of beads here!

I finally found these earrings....isn't it funny?  They were living just a couple of miles from me all this time.
Now....off to locate the bracelet!

Enlarge photo 106
TADAAAAA!  Here is a necklace that I just bought on Ebay.  Also made by Millie Petronzio.  Guess what the next step is gonna be!!!  :)

Enlarge photo 107
Yep, you guessed it!  I sent the necklace that is pictured in photo #119 to Millie, and she did her magic.  The necklace has been transformed into a killer bracelt that matches the rest of the set.

Enlarge photo 108
The new (old) bracelet has the same little dangley bead elements on it that the necklace has.

Enlarge photo 109
Millie can put this name on the bracelet because she is still "Miriam Haskell."
Millie describes the necklace in this set as a "shower."

Enlarge photo 110
Now.....all better!!

Isn't vintage costume jewelry fun?

Millie is such a nice person....I hope you get to meet her, I know she would love to meet you.  :)

Enlarge photo 111
This is my latest....a Larry Vrba set.  Two sets of earrings.  It is to die for!  This design was made by Larry in 1970-1978.

The only thing missing here is a bracelet.

Enlarge photo 112
I found this on Ebay.  It is also by Larry Vrba and uses the same beads as the previous necklace.

Enlarge photo 113
There is a brooch, and a clamper bracelet to this set.  I'll keep looking.  :)

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 !..:))

Absolutely stunning. Love the way that you have had the restorations and reused pieces to complete sets.

Judy-I had asked Robin Deutsch to adopt me but now that I've seen these jewels, I believe joint-custody with you would be a better idea.
