Miriam Haskell

One of my very favorite collections of exquisite, vintage costume jewelery, is Miriam Haskell. You may have read her name in some of the descriptions of  vintage beads that I use in my designs. I only recently discovered her designs after doing some research, but I am in love with her work! Miriam Haskell, created her company and worked together with designer Frank Hess to create stunning pieces of jewelery, that are highly collectible today. Each piece was meticulously created by hand using Austrian crystals, rhinestones,  European glass beads, seed beads and stones. She opened her first boutique in New York city in 1926, and created designs for the society women of the day. Celebrities such as Joan Crawford, Coco Chanel, Gloria Vanderbilt and Lucille Ball were customers of Haskells creations. Enjoy the following eye candy Miriam Haskell Designs!

All her pieces are stunning.
I do love big pieces of jewelry, but find they tend to overwhelm my skinny neck :(
I'll settle for a brooch, though :)
