DRESS TO KILL MAGAZINE - December 2011


Dandi Maestre Jewelry: Luxury of the Raw & Exotic

Toronto is proud to be home to one of the boldest jewelry and accessories designers in the biz. Hailing from Colombia, Dandi Maestre
draws her inspiration from nature and indigenous cultures, creating pieces that dare to be loud, extreme and imperfect.

All elements of her jewelry pieces are natural and recycled, as they are sourced from shores, rivers, forests and jungles. The rawness of the designs
is striking; and you can be sure that one piece will be like no other, since Dandi’s materials include: bone, driftwood, amber, shed antlers, bull horns,
natural fibers, skulls and shells. Her philosophy is to handcraft each item to serve as an art statement, rather than a decorative piece.

We’re keeping our eyes on Dandi’s upcoming collection, Primal Futurism, for Spring/Summer 2012, bound to be spotted in several magazines in the New Year.
Inspiration is taken from the ancient and mythological, whose primal and super-natural qualities are fused with technical and structural aesthetics.

 


Dandi’s store on Huron St. (opened last year as a pop-up shop) reflects her entire design vision, serving as a gallery space for shoppers to view her creations.
Lovers of chunky necklaces, over-sized rings and earrings of raw materials - welcome to exotic jewelry heaven!
Drop by the AGO shop this Friday, November 25th from 12-4 p.m. for a trunk sale.
