#LOVELOCAL MAKERS // Valentine Feature
The Nooks is home to some very special makers, each with talent and knowledge to spare. In honour of Valentine’s Day and our #LoveLocal theme for the month, we wanted to share a glimpse in to a few makers’ creations for the season of love. Find these handmade gifts and more at DESIGNnook, 2038 Danforth Avenue in Toronto, ON.
1. Kristina of Buy Some Love
“It's that time of year, when you start seeing Love everywhere.”
2. Tyler of Riverdale Forge and Ironworks: “Hand Forged Iron Heart Pendant”
“This pendant is forged from iron using traditional blacksmithing techniques of fire, hammer and anvil. Long fine tapers are hammered and scrolled. The sides are flattened to achieve a calligraphic effect.”
6. Andie of Andrometta: “Assorted Valentines”
“I wanted to bring back that sweet, nostalgic feeling of getting a handmade valentine, so I’ve crocheted and sewn these little love-themed gifties for people to give or add to their own creations.”
