Biko is a jewelry label created by Toronto native Corrine Anestopoulos. Her tribal-chic earrings and edgy necklaces are to die for, but the real cream of Biko's jewelry crop is its modernized friendship bracelets. A far cry from the poorly braided pieces of string from your adolescent past, Biko's friendship bracelets marry both brass and fine fabrics such as Japanese rainbow twine.

Anestopoulos says that "as a young girl, [she] designed friendship bracelets, which her friends raided on a daily basis." This pastime evolved into the still playful and handcrafted, but more grown-up line that this talented designer is involved with today. Biko offers accessories in a variety of materials that take inspiration from antiques and tribal influences.

Whether you're a prim and proper accessory lover or someone who wants to push the boundaries of style, Biko has something for every fashionista.
