Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Jennifer Shigetomi, the creative force behind MATSU, initially pursued an education in Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Although the four years at OCAD fuelled her artistic drive, she realized that her innate technical side needed an outlet. After exploring extracurricular evening courses in wax carving for jewellery, Jennifer realized that she had found a medium which balanced both artistry and technique. Subsequently, she enrolled in the three year goldsmith program at George Brown College in Toronto.

Alongside business partner and sister Lisa, MATSU Jewellery set up their first studio/showroom in 1996. High demand and space issues prompted the sister team to relocate their working studio to a Toronto storefront location where they have operated MATSU since October 2004.
