Designing a collection around the concept of atoms, molecules, energy and everything else non-dimensional that makes up the entirety of the universe was never going to be an easy journey. Yet it was one jewelry designer, Jonathan Goldstein, started off with by isolating himself from the outside world.

Jonathan’s journey was far more spiritual. The jewelry he creates reaches far beyond the realms of simple aesthetic, and although sometimes complex, his inspiration produces unorthodox designs that sit well within a modern day society.

Hardware and software were ideas that heavily influenced the collection, Jonathan told me. Stemming from his fear of the economy, something he could not see, yet had such a profound effect on the city. He’s translated this well, I feel. His jewelry feels more like extensions of muscle tissue and bone, emphasizing everything within (software) that effectively fuels the outer body (hardwear).

I feel there is something profoundly alien about the way in which Jonathan has shot his new collection. The angles are obscure and the sheer fabric, haunting. Much like his previous collection, which focused on facial jewelry and the concept of the mask, I feel this collection, once again, highlights areas of the body that frame themselves well. Jonathan’s collections have always, for me, demonstrated a new level within jewelry design.
