LOVEHEWN, is a line of sustainable jewelry handcrafted in Los Angeles from 100% vintage, recycled and foraged natural materials. Founded by Christina Catania in 2011, Catania grew up in Los Angeles where there weren't many opportunities to be immersed in nature and feel the Earth's dirt between her toes. In her collection, she garners inspiration from all walks of life including nature, the sea, medicine, flea markets, etc. Each piece is unique and handmade in Catania's bedroom closet studio in Los Angeles, made with unique foraged pieces she collects from nature.
With environmental sustainability always in mind, she creates original designs inspired by Earth's beauty and crafted for the urban bohemian. She uses only vintage or repurposed chain and recycled wire and findings. Her terrarium necklaces are crafted from upcycled glass vials from a veterinary clinic she used to work at, and corked with wine corks whittled down to size. All items are shipped in repurposed or recycled packing materials.
