Sweet Basil Earrings


These sweet basil earrings are cast in bronze with a hand patination. Each earring measures about .75” long x .4” wide.
Basil was introduced to Europe from Italy and its primary use is culinary. The pungent, fresh leaves are the principal ingredient of many classic Italian dishes. A pot of fresh Basil is also useful in repelling flies, and it was once traditional to place pots of these pungent-smelling herbs on outside tables of Mediterranean cafes. Another use of Basil is in an herbal bath because of its stimulating effect.

About Michael Michaud

Michael Michaud captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads, coral and stones. His exacting attention to detail gives you true to nature, botanical jewelry.

This unique jewelry is made by creating molds directly from botanical elements in a process similar to lost-wax casting. A mold is created around the botanical element and as it is heated the plant matter burns away and leaves behind a beautifully detailed mold of itself.
