Dainty Silver Dollar Drop Earrings
The soft iridescent hues of the Silver Dollar Collection exemplify the warm colorations of all the seasons. These freshwater Keshi pearls offer a myriad of hues. Keshi pearls, also known as seed pearls, can be as small as a grain of sand and form accidentally in many cultured freshwater mollusks. The term Keshi pearl has been widely used since its original definition “any baroque natural pearl”.

The Michael Michaud Jewelry Collection is a world renowned collection of botanical jewelry. 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 jewelry.
This unique jewelry is made by creating molds 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 mold is created around the botanical element and as it is heated the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mold of itself.
