Idelle Hammond-Sass Jewelry Design


ARTIST PROFILE
As an artist, I work to fulfill my need to create and express myself visually. Always drawing, I have also explored printmaking, painting and sculpture in various forms, leading to a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. Jewelry presents an opportunity to create tangible objects that incorporate all of my interests and abilities. After more 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. It reflects the richness of my life experience as well as my spirit.
