Raised in New York and Miami Beach, Matt is an art historian by training and his approach reflects that academic vision.

Burkholz specializes in fine 20s and 30s Celluloid and Bakelite jewelry, and wrote The Bakelite Collection in 1997, the leading reference source on the subject extant. In 1992, he authored Copper Art Jewelry: A Different Lustre, the only dedicated project to the special style of mid century modern copper and enameled jewelry. Matt has also written about vintage couture costume jewels, celebrity collectibles and mid century acrylic jewelry for many magazines. He has television appearances on Martha Stewart TV, The Antiques Roadshow and other productions.
