"I draw my inspiration from the natural world shapes and forms inspired by their inherent architecture."
As a child, Idelle Hammond-Sass collected pieces of broken glass, seeing them as diamonds and emeralds. This fascination with stones stuck with her.
She creates her jewelry out of sterling silver and 14 karat gold. If the piece is cast, a model is made first in sterling. Fabricated pieces begin as sterling that is roller-printed with paper handmade in India. Hammond-Sass then rolls sterling wire and gold sheet over brass plates that she has drawn and etched on, creating a richly patterned surface.
She especially likes playing with the various combinations of textures and colors of stones, doing all of the stone setting herself. Hearkening back to those days of collecting broken-glass emeralds.» View the full artist page of Idelle Hammond-Sass
