Born and raised in Toronto, Jennifer Shigetomi is the creative force behind Matsu Jewellery. A technically trained goldsmith from George Brown College, Jennifer also draws upon her fine arts background from the Ontario College of Art and Design. The cool elegance of her contemporary style is achieved through a balance of artistry and technique.
Alongside business partner and sister Lisa, Matsu Jewellery set up their first studio in 1996. Over the 25 years, Matsu has operated a Toronto store and Newmarket studio. In 2021 the entire operation was relocated to Newmarket Ontario. The new retail showroom houses both Matsu’s original handmade jewellery as well as work from various North American artists.
Matsu’s work is available online and in stores and galleries throughout Canada and the United States.
