Artist Michael Michaud?s Survivor Tree flower pin is more than just a beautiful piece of jewelry?it?s an enduring symbol of our country's resilience. The Survivor Tree, which was actually a Callery Pear tree, was discovered in the rubble weeks after the 9/11 attacks. In 2001 the tree was only 8 feet tall, but today it stands 35 feet tall. This single flower pin is crafted from a bronze cast of a mold taken from a Callery Pear Tree, then given a rich patina. Handcrafted in the USA, each piece in the collection features bronze with matte silver plate flowers and enamel highlights and contains freshwater pearls and peridot beads. These elegant accessories make truly original gifts for that special birthday, anniversary or holiday.
