LEAVES

These frosted glass leaves have always caught my eye for the way the catch the
light. The delicacy, color and
combinations with other stones are very special.
Makers who used these include Schiaparelli, Hattie Carnegie, Hobe, Schreiner and
also some unsigned pieces. So far, I haven’t seen these used in bracelets, but who knows what may turn up in the
future.
Colors: yellow, green, peach, golden, black, tan and clear.
Each molded veined glass leaf is held in a solid backed gold tone setting and
attached to a straight "branch". Some have a tiny rhinestone drop at the end of each leaf
and some do not. Each twig can be bent a bit in order to curve around the center
stone.






HATTIE CARNEGIE
brooch with frosted golden glass leaves surrounding black glass
bugle bead center set in gold tone metal, 2-1/3" by 2". Similar molded glass
leaves were also used by Schreiner during this time period and I have a
real fondness for them.

PINK
molded pink satin glass leaves brooch set in gold tone and
accented with gray rhinestones, 2-3/4" by 1-1/2". The leaves have a
shimmering look and are really lovely, some of my favorites. I have seen
them used in signed designer pieces, such as Hattie Carnegie, and in
unsigned jewelry as well.

FROSTED
glass blue and white leaves frosted leaves brooch and earrings in a gold
tone setting. The brooch is 2-5/8" by 2-1/3" and the clip back earrings
7/8". They are accented with small glass pearls and shimmer in the light.
I have now seen this same set signed "Schreiner NY" as well as
"Schiaparelli".
The designer Hattie Carnegie was also fond of these leaves and used them in her
jewelry, and I have also seen them in similar unsigned pieces, too. Circa
1960, this is a really lovely set in excellent condition.

you can see here.

And even the backs are not quite the same.
