Jewelry, ornament exhibit now on display at Michigan Medicine

Functional Resilience – Brooches by artist Michael Nashef.

This group show of jewelry and ornaments includes the work of Roger Martin, who tackled the subject of a raven by relying on planes and shadow lines to imbue the surfaces of the bird with personality.

Another one of the seven artists, Lorraine Kolasa, picked up the old fashioned art of tatting, then cast tiny pieces of her handmade lace into sterling silver jewelry.

Michael Nashef, who spent half his life in war-torn Lebanon, has created a series of innovative vessels and brooches.

Other artists included in this exhibit are Kim Cridler, Roger Smith, Renee Zettle-Sterling and Ruth Taubman, whose unmatched exuberance of color and 36 years of work and business innovation, place her jewelry firmly on the national stage.
