Cohen’s jewelry has always referenced her artistic beginnings as a textile artist. Whether it is through materials or techniques, the hint of textile work is often present. For these earrings, she has crocheted sewing thread, painted it and fastened the pieces to rolled sterling silver, providing a very lightweight earring.
Since 1999, Cohen’s jewelry has been exhibited in galleries and exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Her work was at also at SOFA NY and Chicago while represented by Snyderman/The Works Gallery. She has won awards, had her work printed in several books and magazines featuring art jewelry and was one of the international artists chosen to jury for Lark Books anniversary publication: 21st Century Jewelry, The Best of the 500 Series. Cohen’s jewelry is represented in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts collection as well as many private collections. More recently she has curated several National art jewelry and other fine craft exhibitions.
