Parisian jewelry Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was known for his glass and Galalith beadwork and pearls. His business grew into one of the largest bead suppliers in the world and workers trained for years to learn his techniques. Rousselet was a true artist creating new types and innovative designs for glass beads and pearls. His work appeared in the boutiques of Coco Chanel from 1948 – 1952. His work also showed up in the shops of Jaques Fath and Pierre Balmain. His jewelry was worn by many celebrities including movie and theater stars. His daughter continued on with the business which eventually closed in the 1970s. Most of his jewelry was unsigned and came with a paper tag. His components and findings are unique and recognizable. Signed pieces are very rare.
