Jeweler Michael Michaud was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Westport, Connecticut. He currently resides in Fairfield, CT with his wife and children. Michael studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology’s prestigious school for American craftsmen, graduating in 1980. In 1991, while living in the Connecticut countryside and working near New York City’s flower district, Michael’s love of nature combined with his love of jewelry to inspire the botanical, flower jewelry now known as Silver Seasons.
Silver Seasons Jewelry is created using a process very similar to lost-wax casting but instead of using a wax mold, Michael uses the actual plant to create a very detailed and realistic mold. This is why all the Silver Seasons pieces are so exquisitely detailed.
