These Single Ginkgo Leaf Earrings from Michael Michaud's Silver Seasons collection are cast in hand patinated bronze from a real ginkgo leaf in order to capture every natural detail. 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 mould of itself. Artist Michael Michaud has been creating his Silver Seasons Jewelry collection since 1992 and has mastered the skill of manipulating molds into beautiful pieces of jewelry. Each piece of Michael Michaud Jewelry is handcrafted in the USA in New York City. Dimensions: HT: .75" from top of ear wire to bottom of leaf.
