Yona Kohen is the Istanbul born and based artist whose work takes its influence from everyday personal keepsakes and found objects.

Using a time-intensive, traditional method to craft her designs, Yona’s pieces are intended to be worn as treasured belongings. It’s a mindset that adds emotion and deeper meaning to the eclectic ‘found’ nature of her design style. Each design is made to order and hand-beaded, using locally sourced materials from Istanbul.
