Known by many names like riso, arroz, kanin, irayisi, rice is a staple food for over 50% of the world, no matter the cultural origin. This little grain can be found everywhere feeding world hunger. From Mexico's sweet milk drink, horchata, to New Orleans' Cajun jambalaya, rice transcends cultures. It has even made its way into our wedding ceremonies representing good wishes and a prosperous life for newlywed couples. The rice toss originated as a way for guests to wish the bride and groom a showering of abundance and good fortune.

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.
