If you’re looking for real statement jewelry pieces made with a mix of traditional and unconventional materials, Toronto based designer Naanafya has done you a favor by creating Gardé Del Avante (a play on the french word avant-garde, of course), a jewelry brand that will leave you breathless.
Naanafya uses zinc buckles, exotic feathers, aluminum chains, luxurious leather finishes, plated elements, stainless steel spikes and more. Every single piece is original and almost on outfit in itself. It’s hard to believe she is self taught because her creations look like works of art. It takes a bold and self assured woman to wear them!
Take a look on www.gardedelavante.com and these images and see for yourself!
