$85.00Product No. #VILSIL5785BZAG Product Description:
Live Oak Leaf and Acorn Pin is hand patinaed bronze with hand cast glass beads.

This Pin is part of the collection designed by Jewelry Artist Michael Michaud for Silver Seasons Jewelry to honor 130 year old oak trees located on the campus at Auburn University at the edge of downtown Auburn, Alabama.
Steeped in tradition, the oak trees are a symbol of Auburn pride. The Auburn community gathers under the Toomer's oak trees to celebrate big wins. Sadly, these trees were poisoned with a lethal dose of tebuthiuron, an herbicide.
This collection is designed from actual leaves from those trees and reflect Michael's famous jewelry design technique using wax cast molds from nature and replicating them with bronze.
