It is hard to look at water lilies without first thinking of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet. A great many of his paintings depict his flower garden at his home in Giverny, France, rich with water lilies. They live in tropical climates around the world and are often associated with rebirth and optimism as they return to waterways after the rains.
Materials: The Water Lilies Brooch are cast in bronze with our special hand patina finish. Accented in pink freshwater pearls.

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
