Alexia Cohen

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Alexia Cohen received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in Jewelry and Metalsmithing; a program grounded in exploring ideas through making. Aside from exhibiting work in various galleries and trade shows in the US, Alexia spent five years as a Jewelry Studio Technician and a Visiting Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Making and experimentation often go beyond the jeweler’s bench for her; as of late the kitchen counter has seen some examples of wild fermentation through sourdough bread baking, and her hands have developed new muscles through a new found love for rock climbing and adventure.
