Hydrangea Hair Clip by Michael Michaud

Item No.
      • Product Description: A native plant of Asia and the Americas, but loved the world over, Hydrangea is sometimes known as 'Hortensia'. The hydrangea collection is cast in bronze from real flowers and features an antique bronze over copper finish.
        A firm favourite of V&A customers, Michael Michaud is renown for his distinctive, original botanical inspired jewellery. This unique 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. Particular care is given to the semi precious stone, pearl or glass elements which are used to realise the colours seen in nature.
