Christenia & Co Steampunk Ball Costume Contest Loot Donations

Donations are still coming in! This is from Christenia & Co.
Accessories for the men and women, her pieces are top class and high quality.
Which is your favorite one? I'm somewhat captivated by the earrings myself.

Who is Christenia & Co?
Christenia & Co. is run by a young lady in Austin, TX who holds a B.F.A in Costume Design from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has been selling her own clothing and jewelery designs on and off since she discovered beading in the third grade and very quickly ran out of enough space to keep all her creations to herself.

Some of her favorite inspirations often come from the likes of Jacques-Louis David, James Tissot, Tamara De Lempicka, Georgia O'Keefe, Tim Burton, Vintage Sears and Roebuck catalogs, and Japanese pop culture.

Stop by her shop today!
Be sure to keep an eye on her shop for her new Spring 2011 pieces!
There are going to be some big changes!

Pieces in her etsy shop I am currently craving are the Crimson Zirconium & Brass Earrings and the Crimson Zirconium & Brass Filigree Necklace!


Grab your goggles and lace up your corsets!
