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 lover 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.
