Welcome to Boo and Boo Factory Leather Jewelry!
Here's a little bit more about my background:
Boo and Boo Factory was founded by me, Christina Anton, as a way to create unique leather jewelry that you just can't find anywhere else. The forms, shapes, colors and patterns are all inspired by my training in architecture. All pieces are handmade from my Chicago studio with love and attention to detail. I specialize in statement necklaces, bold neon earrings and bright color bracelets which combine techniques ranging from hand painted, hand cut, beaded and woven materials.
I graduated with an architecture degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago where I learned many computer and fabrication techniques that have greatly influenced my work.
I have been an architectural designer since 2006, working in various architecture firms in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. After recently graduating with a master degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, where I gained a penchant for color and texture, as well as advanced computer modeling, animation and cutting edge fabrication techniques ranging from laser cut, CNC and 3d printing. I found I had a love of small object design, which influenced my decision to take my growing jewelry design business and pursue it full time.
I am always exploring and expressing myself through many disciplines. I love mixing patterns, prints, color and form. You can see the influence of science, nature and architecture in my work.
