We're drawn to this Heartmade artist’s laid-back vibe. lovecraft. creates eclectic pieces with natural and vintage materials using a variety of techniques including wire work and metalsmithing. They are individual pieces of art that you can wear, each one perfectly imperfect and carrying the story of the materials and person that crafted it. Stephanie DeLeonardis’ designs connect us with our inner bohemian and we love that and her!
