BEST BAUBLES: DANDI MAESTRE
Colombian-born Maestre strings Vancouver driftwood and Caribbean coconuts into showpiece baubles. Her fall collaboration with Toronto design duo Greta Constantine resulted in a fearless grouping of neck pieces made from shed deer antlers. "They gave me total design freedom," she says of GC designers Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill. 'They took away any doubts I had about being daring.'
