Beautiful pea pod necklace cast in bronze with freshwater pearls as the peas!
This charming pea pod necklace by Michael Michaud is cast in bronze with 4 white freshwater pearls on a brass chain.
The 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.
