Hi guys! I'm Laura Michele, the creator of Atomic Lace, and the artist behind all the designs you'll find here! Based in the Chicagoland area, I opened my shop "doors" in the summer of 2012 and found a piece of myself I had been missing. Art and fashion are dear to me because they both have something fundamental in common, self expression.

I can't seem to stick to one design style, and I don't even try to anymore like I did in the beginning. I create for all different types of alternative styles because I myslef am a little of each of them. I don't feel anyone has to define their personal style or try to make it fit into a particular fashion category. Never categorize yourself! We are all made up of pieces of so many things! 

I can go from grunge or goth, to sweet and kawaii in the wink of an eye. I love to mix the cute and cuddly with the dark and dangerous! Give me kittens playing with skulls and flowery sarcastic words any day! It all has its place in my heart! 

I hope my designs will bring a smile to your face and make your day a little brighter! 


You are amazing! You are beautiful! 


Stay fierce you magical creature!
