Christina Chestnut's Profile
Welcome! My name is Christina and I have been making accessories and art for about 15 years. I live in Oregon with hubby and our dog Switch. Crafting and artistic expression are fun, practical ways to use raw or recycled materials.
I started crafting early with folding paper art like quilling and origami so I love to build a masterpiece out of small components. Beadwork interested me after building animals out of bony beads to constructing flower jewelry out of glass beads. I taught myself most patterns from books and tutorials online. I began to sew dresses and home decorations after I got my first job at a fabric store in Washington. My sewing has developed into formal gowns and costumes as well as custom orders and kilts.
Thanks for visiting Maiden Oregon Studios!
