On the eastern shore of Lake Superior, near Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, Jude Ortiz passionately creates one-of-a-kind studio jewellery. She enjoys taking the time to hand-make each piece, finding inspiration in traditional techniques and the beauty that surrounds her.  She engages her head, heart and hands in the process of shaping ideas into reality.

Every item begins with a sketched concept – and a deep conversation with the gold, silver and gemstones. With an intuitive understanding, she shapes the raw materials into expressions of beauty and elegance for others to enjoy.

Driven by a passion for both artistry and research, the creations you will find represent skillful craftsmanship and a sincere commitment to exploring the depths and surprises of the natural world.



Having admired Jude's elegant and expressive jewellery for a number of years, it was a special experience to commission her to design and craft this unique custom pendant and earrings set as a gift for someone truly dear to me. Jude's mastery of fine materials, shapes, textures and colors creates flawlessly crafted pieces of wearable art unlike anything to be found elsewhere.
Jude's collaborative approach to custom design provides her customer with options and suggestions throughout the process resulting in truly one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces and sets that are as personally meaningful as they are beautiful. (Don)



To celebrate some life changes Jude created a beautiful ring that I wear daily. It reminds me that life is what we make of it and moving on is part of it. The ring shows me pathways forward and the decisions and opportunities that lie ahead. It is a delight to wear. (Shirley)

Jude's culture-sector research and development focuses on building individual and community resilience through broad-based engagement, professional opportunities and advocacy.
