This sterling silver and cranberry glass brooch  is based on an original pair of earrings by Hazel Blake French (America, 1890-1972). As a young girl vacationing in Sandwich, Massachusetts, she collected colourful fragments of glass and later admired the glassware made by the famous Boston and Sandwich glass company and began to make jewellery with glass.

 This piece was produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in cooperation with The Sandwich Glass Museum.
