CUCHARA is a Toronto-based jewelry brand created and designed by Edi Canedo. She was inspired by her humble West Coast upbringing as well as the diverse culture that Toronto provides.
Edi utilizes various shapes, chains, and charms, which result in easy-to-wear edgy pieces. CUCHARA is the perfect jewelry brand to complete any look (casual or elegant).
Edi Canedo founded CUCHARA while living in Victoria, British Columbia. In search of new and unique accessories, Edi utilized intricate vintage spoons, which were in abundance in the city’s thrift stores. Her Filipino mother loved them so much she would call them the ‘Cuchara’ necklace. ‘Cuchara’ means spoon in Tagalog and Spanish.
CUCHARA takes sustainability and ethical production very seriously. From the initial use of vintage spoons to the current-day use of deadstock materials – CUCHARA believes in creating something new from what was. Their pieces are made from chains and pendants that would be otherwise dumped in a landfill. And, by producing in small quantities, they keep their carbon footprint down.
Their pieces are elegant and timeless – perfect to style any look. The best part about them is that they stay in trend and ensure you’ll always have the latest jewelry statement. You can find high-end pieces with outstanding quality for prices even under $100.
