· Michael Michaud's Cherry Blossom Jewelry features oxidized hand-patinaed bronze cherry branches cast from molds made directly from a cherry tree. Each piece of jewelry is adorned with keishi and freshwater pearls with some styles also featuring rhodochrosite beads. In Japan, Cherry Blossoms symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse. They are also an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. Cherry Blossom Festivals are celebrated throughout the United States and around the world. Each piece is carefully handcrafted in Michael Michaud's New York City Studio.
