Idelle Hammond-Sass, Ann Arbor
As an artist, I have worked to fulfill my need to create and express myself visually. Always drawing, I also explored printmaking, painting and sculpture in various forms, leading to a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. Jewelry presents a opportunity to create tangible objects that incorporate all of my interests and abilities. After 20 years of exploring jewlery, my passion is constantly renewed by the endless possibilities and combinations of gemstones and metal. As my life has changed, so has my jewelry-each experience I incorporate reflects more of my spirit.
