Based in Montreal, Captve is a sculptural jewellery brand led by designer Jade Boutilier who creates annual collections that intertwine a passion for art and the anomalies of nature. Each piece starts from a solid block of wax and is then meticulously hand-carved into various forms before being cast in precious metals. All production and materials are sourced locally in Montreal.
The name Captve was chosen to echo Jade’s process and passions, as it stems from a series of sculptures carved by Michelangelo. These sculptures depict human figures emerging from solid blocks of marble in an unfinished state, and remind us the value of an artist's process. Captve unearths classic relics and creates visual worlds for the collector that wishes to adorn their body in precious forms.
