The Michael Michaud Jewellery Collection, designed by Michael Michaud, is a world renowned collection of botanical jewellery. It captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads, coral and stones. His exacting attention to detail gives you true to nature, botanical jewellery.
This unique jewellery is made by creating moulds directly from botanical elements in a process similar to lost-wax casting. While traditional lost-wax casting begins with a hand-carved model of wax, Michael Michaud instead uses an actual leaf, branch or flower in place of the wax model. A mould is created around the botanical element and as it is heated the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mould of itself.
Michael Michaud Jewellery is renowned for its beauty and workmanship and is featured in the finest museums, galleries and speciality retailers around the world including The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Art andtheChâteaudeVersailles.
Each piece of Michael Michaud Jewellery is handcrafted in New York, U.S.A.
Materials: The shell earrings are cast in bronze with gold over silver plate to achieve the light golden satin finish. When the two sides of the shell open, they reveal a white freshwater pearl inside. The wires are 925 silver.
