New Jewelry from Silver Seasons

We are pleased to offer jewelry from the Silver Seasons collection, designed by Michael Michaud. Each piece is hand crafted in New York.

Michael Michaud resides in Fairfield, Connecticut. Michael’s love of nature and his exceptional knowledge of jewelry making inspired him to launch the Silver Seasons Collection in 1992. Years of experience has given him the ability to capture the finest details of nature and to craft them with metal. He has perfected the technique of creating models from natural botanical elements and, after the models are made, manipulating these “copies of nature” into his jewelry. Using primarily bronze and natural stones, the Silver Seasons jewelry we offer is renowned for its craftsmanship and beauty.

Below are just three of our many gorgeous pieces:

Introducing the Rancher’s Panama

Many have asked for a Panama with a higher crown, and we’re pleased to announce the Rancher’s Panama. Along with a high crown, it sports a cattleman’s crease. It also features our own kangaroo leather hat band, hand braided here at our facilities in Bothell, Washington.

 

There are three air vents on each side. The body is woven in Ecuador from toquilla fiber which is considered the best straw for Panama hats.

Heathergems: a Christmas Treasure

Our latest jewelry comes from the hills of Scotland, where the purple blooms of heather decorate the landscape. Heathergems are made from this well-loved plant, which is dyed and blocked into unique color patterns.

 

Each Heathergem is handcrafted in Pitlochry, Scotland. The heather used is too old to provide any nutrition for wildlife and is pulled in a manner which promotes the growth of new plants.

 

The stems are dried, shotblasted to remove the bark and dyed various colors using natural dyes. Stems of different colors are then mixed together and compressed into a block. Eighty tons of pressure is required to press the block of stems together.

 

The block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped and filed by skilled craftworkers before being lacquered to give the final finish. The Heathergem jewelry we offer are set into sterling silver fittings. Each piece comes gift boxed, with a card explaining the process used to create Heathergems.

 

This is a wonderfully unique Christmas gift.
