Captive is a one-woman fine jewellery brand designed and made by Jade in her Montreal studio.

Jade creates annual jewellery collections as a form of artistic expression for concepts that intrigue her. They usually focus on the absurdities and cunning wit found in nature. Her most prominent collection, Ruin, has a rock-like texture that has slowly become part of her signature style.

Jade's focus as a statement jewellery designer is merging durability and elegance in every piece. Her main approach to goldsmithing uses the lost wax casting process to transform hand carved waxes into precious metals. Each piece is created with meticulous attention and polished to a mirror finish. Jade often uses accents of oxidation or genuine stones to enhance her work.

Captive, named after a body of sculptures she saw while studying in Florence, Italy, refers back to the process of the lost wax casting technique.
