The Michael Michaud Jewelry Collection 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 jewelry.
This unique jewelry is made by creating molds 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 uses an actual leaf, branch or flower in place of the wax model. A mold is created around the botanical element; as it is heated, the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mold of itself.
The attention to delicate detail in Michael Michaud designs are reminiscent of Isabella Stewart Gardner's precision and her commitment to bringing her vision to life.
