Michael Michaud is a world renowned jewelry designer. He uses the lost wax casting method to capture all the beauty and exquisite detail of nature in metals, pearls, and stone.

Michael studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology's prestigious school for American craftsmen, graduating in 1980. While there, he studied under esteemed designers Hans Christenson and Gary Griffin mastering many of the techniques he uses today. 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 that 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 and natural stones, hand formed glass and freshwater pearls, Michael's designs have become well known for their remarkable craftsmanship and beauty.
