Our Pin Oak Collection celebrates the little acorns from which great oaks grow.
The acorn is the harbinger of new life. Acorns were used extensively as a food source for Native North Americans, and also roasted as a coffee substitute. It is also important for local wildlife populations. The acorn fruit has been recognized in country medicine for relieving chilblains and frostbite.

About Michael Michaud
The Michael Michaud Jewelry Collection is a world-renowned collection of botanical jewelry. It captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature, using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads, coral, and stones.
This unique jewelry is made by creating molds 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.
Michael Michaud Jewelry is renowned for its beauty and workmanship and is featured in the finest museums, galleries, and specialty retailers around the world. Many collections are commissioned by leading museums such as The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Art, and the Château de Versailles.
Each piece of Michael Michaud Jewelry is handcrafted in New York, U.S.A.
