Carmen Miranda would have worked this Miriam Haskell Bracelet!
Deceptively chunky, Miriam Haskell cleverly designed this oval bracelet using plastic marbleised green and black beads.
This means that it is neither too heavy, nor too fragile. The large beads have also been placed so that when wearing the bracelet, they do not catch on your clothes.
The large beads are interspersed with small Russian Gold granulated Roman or Indian style beads threaded with smaller green and red glass beads.
Russian Gold metal hinged bracelet base has filigree cut out pattern which shows next to box clasp closure. Classic 50s style Safety chain.
One spacer missing at closure end, does not detract from the overall design.
