WOOD OF LIFE
A part time resident of the Grand Bahamas, Michael found himself in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 storms that devastated the islands. Having found so much inspiration over the years from the native forests, he was heartbroken to see the once lush landscape stripped bare. As he joined in on the relief effort for the island, he began to notice one tree that seemed to have survived the storm. The Lignum Vitae tree has the densest wood in the world which earned it the name Wood of Life. The national tree of the Bahamas, it remained a constant after the storm with its purple flowers displayed like a beacon of hope.
Cast in bronze. Hand finished in a combination of green patina, matte gold, and antique copper. Select styles accented with hand cast flowers and purple jade. Made in the USA.

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.
