Michael Michaud - Fern Pendant
Michael Michaud Jewellery is a world-renowned collection of botanical jewellery. Each of these unique pieces capture the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads and semi-precious stones. Each piece is handcrafted and cast from the actual plant, using a technique similar to lost-wax casting. Michael's exacting attention to detail gives you true to nature, botanical jewellery.
Ferns have been around since the dawn of time. They first appeared in fossil records that date back to the Devonian period 360 million years ago and have graced the planet ever since. They grow in many different habitats throughout the world and most popular during the Carboniferous Period (the Age of Ferns) being the dominant part of vegetation. Some ferns are used for food like fiddleheads, in art and for medical purposes. Not only do these unassuming environmentally friendly plant stand the test of time, they remove pollutants from the air, remediate contaminated soils and serve as decorative highlights in any space they share.

About Michael Michaud
The Michael Michaud Jewellery Collection, designed by Michael Michaud, is a world renowned collection of 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. Many collections are commissioned by leading museums such as The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Art and the Château de Versailles.
Artist Michael Michaud attended the Rochester Institute of Technology's prestigious school for American craftsmen, where he studied under designers Hans Christenson and Gary Griffin and became a master in the creation and manipulation of moulds. After graduating in 1980, Michael Michaud continued to perfect his craft while working under jewellery designers in the New York City area. In 1991, he found himself working in New York City's flower district and living in the beautiful Connecticut countryside - his love of the natural beauty that surrounded him began to blend with his passion for creating jewellery which lead to the birth of Michael Michaud Jewellery.
