Jay Strongwater might not have an actual garden to toil in, but the Marietta Orchid Objet grew from the seed of an idea in the New York studio, from early design to the first carved wax model capturing each orchid petal's fluttering shape. These lush and exotic orchids are nurtured by artisans as they are molded in pewter; dipped in 14K gold; painted in magenta, violet, and lilac enamels; and set with sparkling gem-cut crystals. The velvety blossoms grace each piece with their fragile beauty on a background of creamy white enamel and glass. A spectacular oversized jeweled orchid blossoms from a leafy base.
