Artist Statement

Jonathan Wahl’s jewelry is influenced by his love of history, decorative arts, and the natural world. The silhouette series was inspired by ancient Greek and Roman cameos and intaglios reset in the 18th century which breathed new life into ancient images at the time. The champleve’ enamel silhouettes recall both the ancient carved gems and their new settings by adding a graphic twist. The carved rock crystal work was a step back towards the original gems but set over enamel gives them another contempory twist with a nod to the Victorian in their settings.
