Vera Wang’s Struttin’ Long Necklaces

What a thrilling trend for Twisted fans!  The models strutting Vera Wang’s spring runways were sporting long, opera length statement necklaces.  Big, bold, and long means causing a fashion flutter in the room with the ease of draping just one (or two) pieces over your neck.  What could be simpler?  The fact that long and lean necklaces make you look, well… long and lean, is just the sprinkles on the donut in our books.

Best Email of the Day!

We all love Twisted, and it’s so much fun to get fan mail from another “Twisted Junkie”.  Here’s an email from a new fan… isn’t she great??? 

It was bound to happen. For months now I have been eyeing all of the shiny baubles at http://twisted-silver.com/ .
Heck I’ve even entered contests trying to win a piece, but no luck there.
 
Yesterday morning when I learned that the Diva choker was half price, I tiptoed into my bedroom and with nerves of steel,
I slipped my visa from my purse as my husband slumbered peacefully just inches away.
Oh yeah, I’m one twisted mother now.
 
And I like it!

We love you too, Southerngal! You’re in the good company of numerous Twisted Mothers!

Break a Few Rules in the Name of Style

In fashion there are set unbreakable rules.  You would never attend your sophisticated auntie’s wedding in your neon pink string bikini.  Letting your bra strap show (well, on purpose) is never okay outside of a Jerry Springer episode.  But then there are the slighter fashion rules that are a lot more pliable then you think.  These softer rules can bend and break without offending the eye but instead cause a curious smirk.  It creates a quirky, funky style with still the right balance of sweetness to fly right under the radar of conventions.  When it comes to rule breaking jewelry, Twisted Silver is the reigning queen!  Take another look at some of our favorite rule breakers and see how they can inject the perfect amount of sassiness into your style.

The Pod bracelet breaks the rule of equal weight chains.  The chunky chain and the small links are not supposed to go together.  However, the conflict resolves itself on your wrist and instead creates visual interest

The Diva choker breaks the rule that says you have to have symmetrical design pieces and that you must have the clasp in the back.  The Diva says “HA!” to that convention, and does it such with delicate, feminine style that there is no room for argument.   The Diva choker is specially priced this week only.

Twisted Hoops break the rule that hoops are always classically elegant.  They go one step farther by sporting antique finish tags no less!

Check out the newly redesigned Chic necklaces in brass or silver.  Always a fan favorite since 2005, the Chic necklaces get a fresh make-over design each year.  You can count on their rule-breakiness as well as their easy wearability.  Yep, clasp goes in the front!

Contrast Creates Complexity

Don’t we all love complexity and contrast?  It’s what makes us sigh seeing a big macho, hunk of a guy tenderly cradling his new born baby.  It’s what makes us gasp at the shy and forgettable wall-flower who steps up to sing the most beautiful solo you’ve ever heard.  It’s what makes us stand up and cheer for the underdog on American Idol.  Contrasting statements cause double-takes and give us hope, because they remind us that we have not figured it all out.  And we like surprises!

Twisted Silver celebrates the unexpected contrast like no other.  Mixing opposing textures, colors and finishes into one design makes stand-up-and-take notices pieces that can deepen the complexity of your look in a snap.

Lets take the Hope necklace for starters.  In essence, it’s just a chain necklace.  But your eye trips over smooth shiny links interrupted by the delicacy of the small textured links.  It’s unexpected, interesting and adds dimension to something otherwise ordinary.

Then there’s the 7 Bracelet.  The edgy thick bangles are softened with a few thinner, feminine ones.  The two bangles styles play against each other artfully.

7-bracelet.jpg

The Flower earrings contrast lacy feminine flowers with brassy and edgy chain.  The flowers take some of the hard edge off of the chain and the chain keeps the flowers from being too girly.  Beautifully balanced contrast!

Of course, no piece in the line contrasts better than the Contrast Necklace, specially priced this week only.  Delicate chain and chunky chain, black and white, perfect spheres and asymmetrical hammered brass all create contrast upon contrast.

Looking for an even bolder contrasting statement?  Try stacking two or three contrasting bracelets.  Which would they be?  Comment below!

The 1-2-3’s of Fashion Forward, Twisted Style

Fashion Forward people walk the front-lines of style.  The very definition of style is “displaying a particular, distinctive, or characteristic manner”.  It means you have a look about you that is unique and current, pulling in elements of the latest trends without abandoning that timeless quality.  It means what you wear on the outside accurately pronounces who you are on the inside —  in no uncertain terms. 

A piece or two of Twisted Silver designs is all it takes to create a fashion forward look in a matter of seconds with the confidence that you’re sporting cutting edge style, and yet marching to the beat of your own drummer.  Ready to step up to the front-lines?  It’s as easy as 1-2-3….

Firstly, don’t fear the BIG.  Oversized and bold designs create a stand-out-style that can define your look in a flash (and for a heck of a lot less $$ than a whole new wardrobe).  Keep your clothing simple, and try wearing one BIG piece.  All of a sudden you’re a hip fashionista without even trying!  Take the Medallion Necklace for example: so much going on visually with the European style architecture and unique chain!  It’s long enough to lengthen the torso, bold enough for second appreciative looks.  The medallion piece is removable, for looks that call for a simple long chain.

Secondly, cut loose from the ties of what you’re “supposed” to wear.  Sounds scary, I know.  HOWEVER, with one Twisted showcase piece you can color outside of the lines with confidence.   If you’re just stepping out into the front of fashion, start out with a statement ring like the Swiss Army.  Rings are not “supposed” to stretch from knuckle to knuckle!  It’s bold, clean lines are going to define that you are not always a go-with-the-flow gal.  Yet, its simplicity keeps your look from being ostentatious.  Not a bad place to start!

Lastly, try a hint of the well-placed ornate.  Draw attention with a bit of complexity with swirls, intricate embossing and visual interest.  A perfect piece is the Stage Bracelet:  baroque and brassy, yet tempered by simple chain.  Worn dressy with elegant white satin or to the office with a ¾ length jacket, everyone will be in awe of your style.

To celebrate your fashion forward style, be sure to check out the two new stand-out pieces: the Justice Cuff and the Warrior Necklace.  And as a fabulous gift, the Vibe Ring is very specially discounted this week only (I’m not joking, don’t pass up this one!!).
