Artisan jewelry inspired and created by Dan Cohen & Kara Eppcohen.
In the urban setting of Miami, Florida, my father and I craft unique pieces of jewelry. I have always revered my father’s many creative talents; macramé art, painting, interior and exterior design, waterfalls, jewelry creation and helping others as a licensed acupuncturist. Of all his many talents, jewelry design, really stood out in my eyes. When I was 10 years old, my father bought me some semi-precious stones and basic tools for jewelry making introducing me into the art of fabricating my own jewelry. He showed me how to make earrings and necklaces as well as how to work with wire. My 18th year found me mother to a beautiful baby girl, Micaela, and I would soon search out again my old jewelry box with the stones and tools given to me by my father. I decided this would be an opportune time for me to create and design jewelry while raising my daughter.
Everything I have learned in jewelry, came from my father. When he saw that I wanted to begin working again in jewelry, he told my mom, “I’m just going to help her get started.” The next thing we knew, we were making a 50/50 business together which I had the inspiration to call Daddy Daughter Jewelry. That name really says it all. From the basis of what my father taught me in jewelry, I was able to create new designs and we now follow inspiring paths of art together.
In our present jewelry designs we have learned to follow our hearts. This has led us to develop the unique bohemian style expressed in our jewelry today. As we only craft one of a kind pieces, created with natural stones and crystals, our jewelry holds a deep place in my heart. The Very knowledge that someone will buy one of our pieces here in Miami that will then travel to any number of places in the world is both inspiring and deeply rewarding.
I would not want to have made this journey into the art of making jewelry with anyone other than my dad. Together we create jewelry embracing many different styles and techniques utilizing a number of different metals Including brass, copper, silver, and gold and with all natural stones.
