Lemon Drop Earrings
Lemon is an evergreen plant that belongs to the family Rutaceae which originates from Asia, but can be found in tropical and sub-tropical regions throughout the world today. The Lemon Drop Collection has been developed in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
It was inspired by the V&A’s Green Dining Room, the world’s first museum café, and its fruit panels designed by the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. in 1886. William Morris was a major influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement, which adopted many of his ideals on the value of hand craftsmanship and the maintenance of truth and honesty in the materials of production. His medieval-inspired designs are noted for their remarkable renderings of interweaving flora and fauna, especially fruits and birds. The designs demonstrate depth of tones, richness in colours and graduation of tints.

The Michael Michaud Jewelry Collection is a world renowned collection of botanical jewelry. It 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 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 itself.
