Julie Cohn

Julie Cohn Design

"I learn a craft by doing. For me, jewelry making has been all about experimenting with waxes, techniques, and fabrication—a nonlinear process of trial and error that has become my methodology. I pare away at an idea until it's distilled down to its essence. "

Twentieth-century sculptors Noguchi, Calder, and Brancusi, who drew their inspiration from primitive ethnic form and crafts, have influenced Cohn's work in jewelry. Designed to layer and stack, her pieces are like one-of-a-kind collages or small sculptures that uniquely mix disparate elements with simple elegance.

Cohn chooses bronze for its luster and connection to traditional sculpture, layering it with sterling silver, gold, and semiprecious stones to give her jewelry a warm, organic quality. Drawing in wax in addition to hand carving her jewelry models allows Cohn to create multi-layered textural elements.

A self-taught artist and designer, Julie Cohn launched her jewelry company in the spring of 2011. She employs unconventional techniques in her jewelry design. She creates forms by sculpting and drawing in wax, resulting in a collection that exudes an ancient yet modern feel.
