Educated as a painter and printmaker, Dallas artist Julie Cohn traveled a diverse design path that included bookbinding, rugs, textiles, hardware, tabletop, collaborations with architects and public art installations. Self-taught, her approach to creating jewelry is unconventional in process and begins by working directly with materials rather than sketching a preconceived idea. She follows in the tradition of handcrafted jewelry by artists Harry Bertoia, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dali, Lucio Fontana and others, often naming pieces after the artist who inspired her. The natural world is her muse and shells, pods, leaves, and stones line the walls of her studio. Organic patterns created by nature’s decay are replicated with hand embossed, pierced, and torched bronze surfaces. Elevating the perception of humble materials has led to experimentation with clay inlay, creating the illusion of colored marble and stone.
