In the tangled web that is our jewelry box, you might find last year’s bangles, a statement necklace (or five) and even some J. Lo-worthy hoop earrings.
So perhaps because of this accessory-strewn landscape, we place a premium on versatility, especially items that can enhance even our most lackluster outfits.
That’s why we’re so enamored with Julie Cohn’s rings. And necklaces. And earrings. And bracelets. The multitalented Dallas artist--whose media have ranged from painting to printmaking, from box-making to bookbinding--has settled on creating delicate, nature-inspired bronze jewelry, and we couldn’t be happier.
In her new spring collection, we love the Noguchi ring ($150), which has a dappled texture, a nod to Cohn’s hallmark play on light and shadow. And we’d gladly make room for the dainty Tiny solitaire ($150), an asymmetric circle that looks sweet on its own and elegant among a stack of rings.
Two standouts include the Lega labradorite earrings ($475), which feature a splay of the clear gemstone that’s at once minimal and nuanced, and the adjustable (and irresistible) Ivy necklace ($525), which is made of the mineral prehnite and has "Art Ball” written all over it.
Equal parts rustic and refined, this is jewelry that’s worth collecting.
