      • Product Description:
        Beautiful Jacinta - commonly known as Hyacinth - brooch.
        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. 
        Care instructions: wipe with a soft cloth or, if necessary, mild soap and water.
