Formally trained as a fashion designer, at the Art Institute of New York City, in 2013 designer Luz Ortiz turned her focus to jewelry design, applying her own original qualities and personal aesthetic. Influenced by a combination of industrial structure, mid-century architecture and geometric elements, Luz draws inspiration from her tropical roots while maintaining a minimal modern edge. Her pieces manipulate shapes and proportions, using everyday materials and a mix of natural stones – a sophisticated, understated approach for design-conscious women. All jewelry is designed and handcrafted in New York City.
