Michael Michaud for Silver Seasons
Artist Michael Michaud collects Flora from his travels around the world. Your jewelry is then cast from nature’s own creation, capturing each natural detail of the original. Silver Season’s fine craftsmen then hand finish each design in bronze, sterling silver or gold using genuine stones and pearls. There is no need to use a polishing cloth on any of Michael’s designs, soap and water will do.
About the artist: Michael Michaud
“Nature’s creations are the ultimate art that fills our hearts with joy, warms our souls with promise and fuels our spirit with desire. My true inspiration to reflect this beauty in adornment is what my Art is all about.”- Michael Michaud
Artist Michael Michaud was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Westport, Connecticut. He currently resides in Fairfield, CT with his wife and children. Michael studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology’s prestigious school for American craftsmen, graduating in 1980. In 1991, fortunate enough to be living in the Connecticut countryside and working near New York City’s flower district, Michael’s love of nature began to combine with his love of jewelry. Today’s collection is a combination of Michael’s exceptional knowledge of jewelry making and his love of nature. He has perfected the technique of creating models from natural elements and, after models are made, manipulating these “copies of nature” into beautiful jewelry. Using bronze, sterling silver or gold and natural stones and pearls, Michael’s designs have become well known for their remarkable craftsmanship and beauty.
