ADA-JITO Paris-Montréal, 1934-1998

First a fashion designer in Paris, then in Montreal, my grand-mother, a lithuanian, married to a russian with a difficult name to pronounce – Wanda Gitkow – created her own signature : ADA-JITO, derived from Wanda (ADA) and Gitkow (JITO).

As an eco-designer, I inherited a passion for creation early on in my youth from my grandmother’s creative energy. I recovered/recycled her buttons to create my first jewels. That is why I have decided to also take on her unique signature which continues to remind me of my grand-mother and her creative energy. It’s a tribute to a marvelous women who has always been curious and exuberant.
