Michael Aram Mezuzzahs Each $55

Intricate and alluring, Michael Aram’s Black Orchid collection evokes nature at its best. Says the designer,

There is a velvety luxury – an almost gothic quality – to representing orchids in blackened nickel. To me, the pieces feel seductive and graceful, yet dark and unexpected.

4.5″L. Stainless steel/black nickel plate.

Nature-inspired, the Botanical Leaf collection calls to mind the leaves and twisting branches of eucalyptus and seagrape. 5″L. Nickel plate.

The rustic texture of wind-swept palm fronds was the muse behind the sculptural Palm collection. 4.25″L. Goldplate.
