About

Devaki

Bold, bohemian inspired, handcrafted collections hallmarked by rustic, hand forged details and an incredible fidelity to materials form the core of the RAW identity, and the woman behind RAW...Devaki Macdonald.

Devaki is a self-taught, recycling artisan and treasure hunter.She honed her skills while traveling throughout Central & South America, learning traditional metalwork and wirework techniques indigenous to each culture, along with resourcefulness with materials, and a deep appreciation for the beautiful people and places along the road.

Devaki's travels deeply informed her commitment to the sustainable fashion movement. For Devaki, to love the world translates as a duty to preserve it.

Devaki's eye for materials transcends mere trends and collections centered around a particular material that are always the result of some fortuitous discovery...like a treasure trove of antique buttons found in an attic wall. Materials are used not just as design elements, but also to protect and cherish the workmanship or stories attached to them.

Devaki and a little 4 yr old wise spirit can be found dancing, loving & creating at festivals and events across Canada, a proud participant in Canada's artisan community.

Primary Materials

RAW

RAW is a traveling curio shop of handmade, sustainable, bohemian style jewellery.

A blend of non-precious, elemental metals and dedicated craftsmanship form the backbone of the RAW aesthetic. Artisan made fine~fashion jewellery, RAW creates fashion jewellery using traditional, metalsmith and fine techniques

Often drawn from reclaimed sources, otherwise overlooked materials are stripped, prepped and transformed by dedication and love of a hammer, anvil & files.

Hand cut, pierced, twisted, cold forged and soldered metal coaxed into incredible details, seamlessly marrying together relics from our industrial heritage with artifacts of our natural world.

Edwardian metal buttons, brass & copper curiosities, antique time pieces, rich silks & vintage textiles pair with crystals, bone, antler & exotic seeds to tell stories of the past, present and future.

Inspired by ethnic cultures, nomadic lifestyles and intrinsic values, everything RAW is created with quality and intention

Handmade by Devaki
