BABY'S BREATH KESHI PEARL CHANDELIER EARRINGS
These elegant earrings are cast directly from Baby's Breath flowers and capture their delicate essence. Artist Michael Michaud captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls. His exacting attention to detail gives you true to nature, botanical jewelry. These earrings feature hand-patinaed bronze and white Keshi pearl accents. The pearl necklace is adjustable with a 1-inch chain extender.
This unique jewelry 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 replica of the original botanical specimen in bronze.
