Toronto-born, internationally successful jewelry and accessories designer I’MONIQ (aka Monique Anderson) is selling special hand-made pieces this Thursday at Miracle Thieves (249 Crawford, at Dundas). I’MONIQ has a beautiful aesthetic of blending dyed and woven textiles with chains, charms and other components to make for unique, textured statement pieces ranging from necklaces and earrings to bracelets and more.
Monique takes inspiration from her trips to India, as well as growing up in an Afro-Caribbean household. We likey! Mix that with contemporary pop-culture savvyness and it’s no surprise celebs like Melanie Fiona seek out I’MONIQ’s pieces.
The bright colours will surely be striking against all the autumn colours that come with fall. Add them to a neutral work outfit for an extra pop, or layer with other colourful patterns for a rainbow oasis when the sun sets early. Come by the sale-meets-soiree after work, shop, dance a little, and mingle in creative hot-spot, gallery space, vintage haven, host to many a pop-up shop, Miracle Thieves this Thursday, September 27 from 7-11pm. Music by DJ David Coppafeel. There will be treats!
