Description

Throughout her influential career, designer Miriam Haskell (American, 18991981) created some of the most elegant, high-quality costume jewelry in the U.S. Today, her creations are still made entirely by hand. At the heart of each piece is an intricate filigree backing that is separately plated, assembled, and meticulously embellished. The tight embroidery of each bead, crystal, and pearl, with no sign of the base underneath, is characteristic of Miriam Haskell jewelry. Colors and materials are chosen for their sophistication, often used in asymmetrical compositions. This floral bracelet, made for the Metropolitan Museum, were hand- assembled in the U.S.

Produced by Miriam Haskell exclusively for The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

24K gold overlay, made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and simulated glass pearls. Box-and-tongue closure. 7 1/4''L.
