Leetie Lovendale is a jewelry line born of leftovers. In 2004, designer and bead store owner, Heather DeSimone discovered a warehouse which wanted to sell its entire contents of vintage plastic jewelry components. 40,000 pounds of beads, unfinished hoops and geometric flat shapes. Most were not bead-store-ready. After researching old manufacturing and hand-making techniques used in the 1960s through the 1980s, Heather founded Leetie Lovendale. A line of jewelry was born to make modern for today from vintage lucite parts.
