Woman's Brooch

All that glitters...
In 1924, Miriam Haskell founded a jewelry company whose products were distinguished by their workmanship and design rather than the intrinsic value of the materials used. This handmade brooch, for example, is made not from seashells and pearl but from glass and stone.
