The portrait is an artistic representation of a subject, highlight unique aspects of personality, mood and attitude. Jewelry, as a format, has served as a symbol of personality, power and status. Reflect is a contemporary reaction of art jewelers to historical female portraits from the permanent collections of the Rehoboth Art League in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware.

Twelve international jewelers were selected to react to twelve portraits from these two prominent Delaware art collecting institutions. Each artist was free to interpret the portrait formally, dealing with composition, color and shape; and conceptually, dealing with historic, gender or political references. The portraits and jewelry seen together create a juxtaposition between old and new, image and object, representation and reflection.
