Laurie lenfestey, designer and owner of bittersweet designs lives in Santa Fe New Mexico. Bittersweet Designs, a wholesale company, was created in 2006; Laurie started with a card line, inspired by her daily collages for her children, and then developed a vintage paper line of wedding albums, baby albums, photo frames etc. Because of the wonderful response to the necklaces, she is now completely dedicating her time to designing jewelry. She is happy and honored that her necklaces are sold to boutiques worldwide. Her studio on Santa Fe's famed Canyon Road has become a community stopping point for artists, children and free spirits, who are encouraged to wander through her open doors.
