Dichondra argentea, which is nicknamed Trailing Licorice or Silver Falls, is known for its elegant, cascading vines, ornamented with an abundance of petite, round leaves that resemble miniature water lily pads. The name "Silver Falls" comes from its silvery-green leaves which trail downward, creating a waterfall of foliage, perfect for hanging baskets, tall containers, or window boxes. The downward dancing vines of the plant and its unique color inspired Michael to create this wonderful collection.
Materials: The Trailing Licorice earrings are cast in hand patinated bronze with petite white freshwater pearls. The wires are 925 silver.
Measures: 1.23" L x 0.74" W
About Michael Michaud Jewelry
The Michael Michaud Jewelry Collection, designed by Michael Michaud, 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.
Michael Michaud Jewelry is renowned for its beauty and workmanship and is featured in the finest museums, galleries and speciality retailers around the world. Many collections are commissioned by leading museums such as The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Art and the Château de Versailles.
Each piece of Michael Michaud Jewelry is handcrafted in New York, U.S.A.
