Stephanie Treviño-Ballard Owner/Artisan, Graphic Designer, Sleep-Deprived Creator Of Things (Coffee Bean Juicer, Multipurpose Nerd, Anxious Queer Doofus)
NebulaDraconian is based in Yorktown, VA and offers chainmaille art, armor, and accessories in a range of styles and materials. Founded in 2011 as a jewelry-oriented studio, NebulaDraconian has since shifted toward items more suitable for cosplay and gaming.
Stephanie is best known for insisting on making designs that should not work but making them work anyway, thrives on challenging projects, and gets the most work done late at night when all the reasonable people have gone to bed.
When not wielding pliers, Stephanie works at a local Starbucks, making drinks at top speed. Some of their latest designs have been made -- a little at a time -- during breaks in the cafe.
Stephanie also produces several designs & products with Craftsochists, a collaborative collective also operated by the artists behind A Geek and Her Machine and Red Fish Rue Fish. Most of their conversations start with "okay, but what if..." and lead to excellent shenanigans.
