RICE

Known by many names like riso, arroz, kanin, irayisi, rice is a staple food for over 50% of the world no matter the cultural origin. This little grain can be found everywhere feeding world hunger. From Mexico’s sweet milk drink, horchata, to New Orlean’s Cajun jambalaya, rice transcends cultures. It has even made its way into our wedding ceremonies representing good wishes and a prosperous life for newlywed couples. The rice toss originated as a way for guests to wish the bride and groom a showering of abundance and good fortune. 

Hand patinaed bronze with fresh water pearls.

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.
