Ellen Cohen

Artist Statement:

Like life, my work is unpredictable and changes to reflect my experience of the world. My surroundings are a constant source of inspiration: an ocean view through a shrub, the rivets of a stell bridge, a beach stone. Grit, natural beauty, and the unexpected all play a part.

Light, form, and texture are embodied in my work through reflection, research, and deep consideration. I take something hard and flat and form it into sculpture. Primitive and bold, ancient and modern, I strive to bring beauty out of chaos.

Using recycled metals and upcycled or fair-mined gems, my jewelry is meant to stand the test of time, honoring the earth and the individuals who wear it.
