Myrtle Wire Earrings
These Myrtle Wire Earrings by designer Michael Michaud and Silver Seasons seem to glow with an inner strength harmonious to your own. Myrtyle was worn in wreaths by the original Olympians, and you can express that sense of triumph in truly elegant natural style. A cluster of hand-patinaed cast bronze leaves and warm, glowing freshwater pearls dangles to evoke freshness and life. Crafted with pride in the USA. Earrings feature sterling silver wires.
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.
