In Japan, the azalea is a symbol of temperance, passion and womanhood. Inspired by Charles Caryl Coleman’s Still Life with Azaleas and Apple Blossoms, 1878 and the contemporary fashion for Japanese art at that time, artist Michael Michaud created this beautiful Azalea Pin. In keeping with his Silver Seasons Jewelry Collection, this striking piece features leaves and flowers cast in bronze from a real azalea plant. It is completely handmade and includes a freshwater pearl and a striking patina with layered colors of bronze, copper and silver. Hand crafted in the USA.
