Michael Michaud Spiral Geranium Brooch
The Geranium brooch is cast in bronze and accented with a white freshwater pearl.
Commonly known "cranesbill", these plants are cultivated for their rounded often-variegated leaves and showy clusters of red, pink or white flowers.
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.
