After graduating with her BFA in Metals from art school, Ms. Cohen apprenticed under a master European jeweler for several years. During this time, she honed her
craft as a wax model maker and bench jeweler, as well as exploring her love of custom design. This lead her to establish her own studio in 1997. Since then,
Brenda has been doing design and jewelry work for the trade in Philadelphia and surrounding areas, as well as creating one-of-a-kind pieces for her clientele,
both locally and across the globe.
Custom designs are Brenda's specialty. Looking through the portfolio, one will find that her pieces range in style from ornate Edwardian filigree to
minimalist, contemporary designs. Brenda strives to create unique jewelry that is not only original in form and structure but is also meticulously crafted
to high-end, heirloom quality. One of Brenda's signature design traits is using modern forms and incorporating antique-style embellishments that punctuate
the piece and add to its brilliance and sparkle. She also travels extensively to find rare, precious gemstones to incorporate into her work.
In addition to creating her own pieces, Brenda specializes in designing jewelry around a particular stone or idea from her customers. Most of the pieces
in her portfolio reflect her innate ability to incorporate her clients' gemstones and desired details to create jewelry that is unique and beautiful.
