  1. Clean and rinse mussels well. Peel and halve onion lengthwise. Finely chop parsley. Crumble saffron threads.
  2. Cut onion halves crosswise into less than 1/16-inch-thick slices with slicer.
  3. Cook onion with crumbled saffron and 1/2 teaspoon salt in oil in a wide 6- to 8-quart heavy pot over moderately high heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add wine and bring to a boil, then stir in cream, pepper, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and mussels. Cook, covered, checking after 6 minutes and transferring opened mussels to soup bowls with a slotted spoon. (Discard any that remain unopened after 8 minutes.)
