Michael Michaud crafts his unique botanical jewellery by creating moulds directly from leaves, branches and flowers. As it is heated, the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mould of itself. The cast bronze is then patinated and accented with gemstones and precious metals.
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.
Michael Michaud Jewellery is renowned for its beauty and workmanship and is featured in the finest museums, galleries and specialty 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.
