An industrial designer by profession but jewelry designer at heart, Yucatán native María José Ordoñez started her first collection for Rosa Matte in 2017 with the aim of instilling her love of art, architecture, minimalism, and organic creation into her work.
Committed to high-quality design, artisanal processes, and conscious consumerism, each piece aims to incorporate a femininity, delicacy, and strength that Ordoñez believes epitomizes the courage and power all Mexican women carry inside. Each of Rosa Matte's pieces is unique and timeless.
Born on a small island called Ciudad del Carmen in the state of Campeche in southern Mexico, María José Ordoñez completed her university studies in the city of Mérida, Yucatán.
She discovered her passion for jewelry design and that is where she truly found herself. Four years on, Rosa Matte continues to grow, using the best Yucatecan artisans to fuse trends and tradition together in a unique way.
In her collections, Ordoñez seeks to reflect her pride in her Mexican heritage and a versatility and sophistication that makes the wearer feel beautiful. Inspired by memories and experiences, each piece aims to imitate the quality, passion, and delicacy of Mexican hands at work. All jewelry is made from high-quality .925 silver.
