From renowned artist Michael Michaud, this Red Poppy Pin is handmade in NYC by artists at Silver Seasons Jewelry. A celebration of life in vibrant color, this pin is crafted from bronze with hand-patinaed color and accented with freshwater pearls and red cast glass petals. A symbol of hope and remembrance for fallen troops, the red poppy is often worn around Veteran's Day to commemorate soldiers lost in battle. This tradition began in World War I after the trench warfare that claimed the lives of so many soldiers in the poppy fields of Flanders. The Red Poppy Pin from Michael Michaud brings tradition together with handmade replication of one of nature's most beautiful blossoms.
