Sara Cochran earned her BFA in Jewelry Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her jewelry aesthetic is strongly influenced by sculptural forms and ideas, drawing inspiration from sources such as architecture and sleek shapes found in nature. Sara’s approach to jewelry is highly conceptual and she prefers to think of her work as an exploration between the boundaries of sculpture and design. Sara finds that working in a variety of metals and alternative materials and experimenting with new techniques best articulates her artistic vision.
 


Sara lives in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago. There, she began her interest in metalsmithing at the Evanston Art Center. Her attraction to visual art has been apparent from a young age, and actively supported by her parents. Sara’s favorite trips with her family were to art museums and her free time was spent drawing and creating at home and the Evanston Art Center. Her twin brother Ian is equally involved in the arts, particularly sculpture and industrial design. The two correspond about their work and enjoy constructive feedback from one another.
