Designer Discovery: CUCHARA

At once edgy and elegant, CUCHARA is the brainchild of Edi Caneda. The young Toronto-based designer names '90s pop, grunge and hip hop among her influences, and all are on display in her colorful collection of jewels.

Pairing both faceted and uncut stones with gunmetal chains and spikes, Caneda's designs call to mind those of Lizzie Fortunato and DANNIJO. Fortunately for us, though, there's a pretty significant difference in price point, with handmade CUCHARA pieces topping out at $250.

The label's recent launch stateside has set my expectations high that we'll be seeing plenty of pieces in stores soon. Until then, you can find the collection at CUCHARA's website and locally at Recess in Winchester.

  2. Nice, I will have to check them out. You can really see the inspiration in their designs. I also love Dannijo jewellery. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

  3. I always spent my half an hour to read this weblog's posts daily along with a cup of coffee.

    These are great pieces, thanks for sharing. :) I didn't know about CUCHARA, but I also love discovering new designers. I live in Toronto, so I'll definitely check check out this designer.
