Irish Thorn Pin
Designed by artist Michael Michaud and made in partnership with Silver Seasons Design Group, this brooch is modeled after the Irish Thorn that grows in nature. Handcrafted in the USA using fine gold layered over sterling silver and accented with white freshwater pearls.
Michael Michaud began his career at the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology's school for American craftsmen, and graduated in 1980. Over the years, Michael has developed his unique and highly recognizable Michael Michaud Jewelry line. He begins each piece by creating a model from natural elements and then transforms these models into his beautiful jewelry collection. Each exquisitely detailed piece is crafted in the USA, using high quality bronze, sterling silver or gold, and various natural stones and pearls, and cast in bronze using the artisan's special lost wax technique.
