A plant or flower that usually has showy 3-petaled flowers with the middle petal enlarged into a lip and differing from the others in shape or colour. While we think of orchids as exotic flowers, there are many orchids that grow wild. Orchids are highly prized and unique and, lore has it, that to carry any orchids brings luck in love.

Materials: The Orchid brooch is cast in bronze with layers of copper over silver. Size 6cm x 6.5cm approximently.

The Michael Michaud Jewellery Collection, designed by Michael Michaud, is a world renowned collection of botanical jewellery. 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 jewellery.

This unique jewellery 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.
