The Botanical Garden Collection by Michael Michaud. A world-renowned collection of botanical jewelry that captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads, coral and stones.
This unique jewelry is made by creating molds directly from botanical elements in a process similar to wax casting. While traditional 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 mold is created around the botanical element, and as it is heated the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mold of the botanical element.
