J Kohr Couture is my exclusive line of elaborately designed wearable fiber art. These statement pieces are one of a kind because of the nature of how they are created. I record the pattern or patterns of the elements but not the embellishing or the manner in which it is put together so the piece is only created in a particular way that one time. J Kohr Couture designs are the most labor intensive pieces of jewelry that I make, many taking days or even weeks to fully finish. Most have glass beading both tatted and hand sewn into the lace as well as glass pearls, Swarovski, Celestial and Czech crystals, Cubic Zirconias, semi-precious stones, Hematite, shell, Sterling Silver and wood.
J Kohr Couture can be a sophisticated contemporary design or a wearable bouquet of leaves, flowers and butterflies. My own unique creativity and design skills are what makes my Couture line of jewelry and accessories stand apart from ordinary tatted jewelry. Also included in this collection are Watches and Cocktail Rings which can be found in other galleries on this site.
This page is dedicated to my J Kohr Couture line with a catalog of photos and links to the work in my Etsy shop. From time to time, I chat about the creative process in my Fresh Creations posts such as this one. http://snappytatter.com/2011/01/23/the-creation-of-the-winter-gala-statement-necklace/
I thank everyone for visiting. I hope you enjoy this body of work as these are personally my most beloved jewelry designs. I would love to hear your comments.
