The boxwood (Buxus Sempervirens) is an attractive evergreen that has graced formal gardens for centuries and continues to be used at Mount Vernon for decorative edgings. This lovely jewelry, inspired by boxwood cuttings from George Washington's beloved estate, is created exclusively by Silver Seasons. Artist Michael Michaud uses the lost-wax casting method in making this jewelry. He perfects this technique by creating models from natural elements and manipulating these "copies of nature" into his designs. Each piece is made of hand patinaed bronze with white freshwater pearls.
The blossoms on the post earrings measure approximately 1". The posts are sterling silver. Made in the USA.
