About Leetie Lovendale.
Designer, Heather DeSimone:
I started in the beaded jewelry world. I owned a bead store for over 20 years, taught jewelry-making classes, and I even published a jewelry How-To book. But the desire to start making jewelry again lead me back to what started me on my path to begin with. After stumbling upon 40,000 lbs of old plastic parts, left behind by the jewelry makers of the early 80's, I envisioned a line of jewelry that was sustainable and made vintage things look new again.
I ENVISIONED A TEAM, OR A TRIBE, OR A FAMILY OF WOMEN LIKE ME: STRONG, READY TO SUCCEED. NEEDING AND CRAVING THE FREEDOM TO MAKE MONEY ON THEIR OWN TERMS. WITH A DRIVE TO SHARE A COOL PRODUCT. I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU & WORK WITH YOU ON OUR SHARED GOALS: GET LEETIE LOVENDALE SEEN, COLLECTED AND LOVED. AND TO SUCCEED WHILE WE DO IT.
Sustainable & ethically sourced.
Leetie Lovendale, from the very start, has been made using vintage goods, Found leftovers, AND plastics which were salvaged from warehouses before heading to a landfill. After years in the business, we still find sources liquidating old jewelry parts, beads & components. And, what is new now, will be leftover & vintage before you know it.
Made in the U.S.
Designed & constructed here in the U.S., Leetie's makers are stay-at-home moms, retirees, anyone who needs a flexible schedule. From the makers to the sellers, Leetie's team can create their own reality.
