Toronto has a wealth of supremely talented accessories designers, but I have to admit to a new favourite: Mizdragonfly.
The lady behind the line, Karine Eyamie, likely couldn't design a boring bauble if she tried. Every one of her pieces oozes originality and a funky sense of fun, mashing together the best parts of Hollywood glam and street style.
Like most creatively inclined Canadian designers, Eyamie has better luck getting her goods carried by retailers in the States. Only one store in Toronto stocks her line: Made You Look (1338 Queen West, 416-463-2123, madeyoulook.ca).
So I'm glad she's taken matters into her own hands with the launch of a revamped website and e-commerce store. Her site alone boasts a better selection of cuffs, earrings, necklaces, rings and more than some of the city's better-known jewellery retailers.
Bonus: you get to shop from the comfort of your couch.
Mizdragonfly picks Ultra lightweight Diamond Filigree earrings funkified with electric lacquers ($65) and limited-edition Giza rings made with recycled vintage jewelry pieces ($95).
Look for Add some attitude to any outfit with Wonder Woman cuffs handcrafted from original vintage Wonder Woman comics ($88-$120) or a one-of-a-kind Faith ring made from vintage religious brass jewellery ($95).
