Thanks to everyone who visited and supported our great place.

Loved the experience.

   
 

Colombian-born accessory designer and jeweler Dandi Maestre’s career has taken off meteorically since she debuted her line back in 2007. Her unique pieces, made of organic materials such as antlers, bull horn, rough amber and emeralds, reclaimed wood, natural seeds and nuts, have become the go-to accessories for woman with individual taste and bold style.

 

You have seen her pieces in Vogue, Lucky, Hello!, Flare, Glamour, People Style Watch, Holts Style, The Toronto Star and The Globe & Mail and on Donna Karan, who features her line in her Urban Zen shop in New York.

 

Now we can find all her designs -- even her handbags and house wares -- in her store at 386 Huron St. at Sussex Ave. (See map) Part workshop, part gallery space, this elegant 1875 building is the former site of Chelsea Shop antique emporium, situated in an un-frenzied residential Toronto street close to Spadina and Bloor. Watch Dandi handcraft her latest designs while you try to absorb the mind-boggling collection of unique, exciting and exotic pieces, made exclusively for this shop. Or Dandi can create your very own custom piece.

 

Her newest collection is called “Adornment as mask.” “Masks are powerful magical tools, one of the tools of transformation,” explains Dandi. “A mask helps us change what we are into what we want to be.” Hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday from 12 noon to 6 p.m. or by special appointment.
