Celeste Christie's Profile
I fell in love with vintage textiles when I found my mother's old clothes from the 1970's. This started my love affair with thrift store shopping, and my necktie collection. When I realized I could make things out of neckties, my collection suddenly became a treasure trove of materials!
I live in the Fruitvale district of Oakland, CA amongst Buddhist temples and rolling taquerias with my awesome husband and my also awesome cat Loki (who is NOT allowed near my materials!). When I'm not furiously making things either for CC Star or for my day job at Mark Poulin Jewelry, I enjoy watching movies, playing badminton in the front yard, and margaritas. I went to UCLA for a BA in Costume Design and California College of the Arts for a BFA in Jewelry/Metals.
