Designer Michael Michaud's botanical jewelry captures nature's beauty and detail using soft patinas on bronze and accents of pearls, glass, and stones. The Silver Seasons collection is made by creating molds directly from botanical elements in a process similar to lost-wax casting. 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 itself. Starting with this process, all Silver Seasons jewelry is handcrafted in New York.
