While one usually associates "gold" and "pearls" with Miriam Haskell designs, she also often produced whimsical pieces with beads/beading. This is especially true of many unsigned, early pieces. These fun, screw back style earrings are a great example of a construct to tickle your fancy.
In a classic combination of black and white glass beads, the top of each earring is begun with a Russian gold colored metal triangle, across which is wired, horizontally, in alternating lines of black and white. The edges of the triangle have metal loops from which are suspended "ropes" or loops of blacks beads. Hanging from each of these is a white glass flattened rectangle. As an added fillip, the back of the "gold" triangle also has some wired "gold" beads.
Each of the triangles measures 1 inch across and 3 inches down. Each "rope" of black beading measures 2 inches long, including the white glass piece.
The back of the triangle has a round disc, to which the screw back is attached, and it has the Miriam Haskell signature. The "arm" of the screw back also is signed. These really funky and fun pieces are late 1930's through 1940's. They are in terrific vintage condition. Can't you just see these paired with a jean jacket!
