by Sheri Cohen
Indigo Lights creates a large range of unique art jewelry. Sheri uses silver, dichroic glass, exotic beads, fossils, faceted stones and found artifacts. Her jewelry is more wearable art then what one would think of as traditional jewelry designs. When looking at her necklaces and rings, they sometimes resemble treasure, found from some ancient cache of an Egyptian princess or Celtic king. Introducing ancient motifs gives a truly unusual look and feel to her work.
- Alchemical materials
- Intimate art form
- Treasure hunting
- Symbols and meanings
- Connecting the universal archetypes
These elements represent the main focus of what Sheri strives to create in her art. Though she uses the traditional materials of gold, silver, glass, stones and beads, these are only the raw components on her journey to create jewelry as an art form that resonates with our audience on a deeply emotional level.
She believes that her customers feel these things, because of the number of people who come back to share with the transformative experiences they have had while wearing Indigo Lights jewelry.
Sheri has always been fascinated with ancient cultures and the magical pull of treasure that jewelry invokes. It whispers to a part of us that there is a deeper meaning in these creations than mere adornment.
Currently, both Sheri and her husband Brian teach jewelry making techniques at the Irvine Arts Center in California. They are both featured artists in “Metal Corrugation” by Trish MacAleer.
