A designer, gemologist, all around jewelry freak, Brooklynite and now, accidental blogger. After studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Gemological Institute of America, I had the unique experience of working with one of the most prestigious, private couture jewelers in New York and the most important estate jewelry store in the city. The pieces I create are heavily influenced by the jewelry of the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau periods, along with a rock n' roll edge and tongue in cheek sensibility. Also inspired by the religious art and architecture of Europe I've experienced on my travels, I appreciate the beauty of religious icons. I try to interpret my many influences in a casual, wearable way, to easily integrate my pieces with your unique style. The one of a kind jewels I create incorporate bits and pieces of vintage jewelry and findings. I believe in taking broken, discarded things from the ashes and giving them a new life. Reuse, recycle, repurpose. From the Ashes Vintage Jewels creating Modern Heirlooms with Edge - Antique and Vintage Inspired One of Kind Creations by Angela Cohen. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.
