Cuchara is a Toronto-based jewellery brand created and designed by Edi Caned. 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. Wear Cuchara to complete any look.
Cuchara was founded by Edi while living in Victoria BC. In search of new and unique accessories, Edi utilized intricate vintage spoons, which were in abundance in the thrift stores throughout the city. Her Filipino mother loved them so much she would call them the “Cuchara Necklace” (Cuchara meaning spoon in Tagalog). Although her designs have since evolved from using spoons, the name has stuck and is a reminder of the brands roots.
Cuchara has always been a branch that 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. By sourcing chains and pendants that otherwise would be dumped in a landfill and by producing in small quantities, helps keep our carbon footprint down. Our intention is that Cuchara jewellery will last you through the years.
