Established in 2001.
Made You Look Jewellery studio and gallery was established with a unique vision for creating a community for talented independent jewellery designers to thrive and shine. At the time, in 2001, jewellery designers lacked studio space and good places to sell their work, so Made You Look was established as a venue for artists to come together to collaborate and help each other move forward in business and to be known as a central hub for customers to see a wide variety of work, all under one roof. Over the years Made You Look has represented hundreds of award winning designers and been home to some of this cities most unique and sought after talent. Made You Look was also one of the first businesses to open up shop in Parkdale, at a time when the area was still considered undesirable. Gradually this part of Queen Street West has become one of the most interesting strips, with an abundance of unique local businesses who specialize in one-of-a-kind services and products.
A Graduate of the Jewellery Arts Program at George Brown College, Sarah Dougall is the trail-blazing entrepreneur and brainchild behind Toronto’s famous Made You Look Jewellery Studio and Retail Gallery. Established in 2001 as Toronto’s first large scale jewellery collective, her unique vision and the one-of-a-kind environment she created, helped launch the Toronto Jewellery Arts community into what is now a mecca for designers and collectors alike. What’s more? This bustling community of creativity has helped to transform Toronto’s once down-and-out neighbourhood of Parkdale, into what is now a dynamic retail strip full of unique independent businesses.
Sarah was president of The Metal Arts Guild of Canada from 2006 – 2010.
