Brassy Personality

Brass is Twisted Silver’s non-conforming element of choice.  Brass jewelry is ever changing, taking on a personality of it’s own the more you wear it.  Bracelets worn often become smoother and shine in unpredictable patterns.  Rings and necklaces take on color over time – blacker, darker, greener, yellower —  ensuring the uniqueness of your look.   

Take a look at the Warrior necklace which features blackened brass:

Brass especially reveals personality when fire-treated as with the Gypsy necklace:

Brass accessories play well with any other metal accents, bringing added depth to traditional silver and gold, which is why brass is the basic metal that has long-term trend staying power.  Explore stacking your brass jewelry with your most loved sentimental pieces.

Designer Debra Mitchell says, “I just love brass, which gives a soft look, an almost heirloom vintage feel to even my most modern designs.  Its versatility lends itself to delicate looks as easily as edgy. ”   The very essence of Twisted Silver is offbeat – the use of vintage and salvaged elements, raw material designs and intrinsic parts – and the brassy personality of brass is the perfect medium. Visit Twisted Silver for a wide variety of brass jewelry.  What are your favorite brass pieces and how do you rock them?

Sneak Peek Thursday: River and Planet Bracelets

Yep, it’s Sneak Peek Thursday at Twisted! I just crept in super-stealth mode down the hall to the design room when no one was looking — which is fun no matter what day it is, because I am still clutching to my childhood dream of a career in spycraft… but I digress.  What I saw made me squeal and nearly break my cover!  YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE THESE two new bracelets launching on Tuesday!  My lack of lip-zipping skills kept me out of secret agent school, so I’m spilling the beans and showing you what’s in store. 

Coming Tuesday are two bracelets that show the FUN personality of brass and copper. Base metal doesn’t always have to be edgy, and these two pieces show off artistic and playful moods.  Have a little fun with your look and cause a double-take with these two stunning bracelets arriving on April 28!

Twisted Moms

Twisted Moms come in all ages and styles, but they have one thing in common: their personal style puts them on the fashion map wherever they go!  What type of Twisted Mom do you have – or what kind of Twisted Mom are YOU?  Explore below and discover which design will make Mother’s Day just that much more Twisted.

Boho Glam Mom     

 

The Boho Glam Mom is the quintessential haute hippie.  She wears her peasant blouses and loose-fitting flowery prints and carries a designer hobo bag.  Her personality is easy–going, eco-hip and artistic.  Boho Glam is a hot trend for this spring as seen all over the fashion runways.  Your Boho Glam Mom would be thrilled to wear the Motif earrings or the Tre necklace.

Rocker Mom

 

Bold and edgy the Rocker Mom lives by the code of distressed denim and leather, boots and sparkly sandals.  She’s the queen of layers, with her tanks and tees as well as her bracelets and necklaces. Daring and risk taking, the rocker puts glitz and metallics into her essential look.  American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi, might have motherhood in her future, and if she does we already know she rocks Twisted! Pick up the 7 Bracelet and the Scroll Ring for the Rocker mom in your life.

Style Setter Mom

 

The Style Setter Mom is on the forefront of the latest buzz on everything current and up to the second, from the NY Times best seller list to the trendiest exercise craze.  She’s unafraid to try bold statements — much like Gwen Stefani’s cutting edge style.  The Stage Bracelet and the XO Belt would fit perfectly with any fashion forward mom.

Vintage Mom

The Vintage Mom is able to take the best of days gone by and create a timeless look.  From Old Hollywood glam to the updated retro jumpsuit, the vintage mom loves the history of fashion.  From antiqued metal glitz to groovy resin, the Vintage Mom would love the Zone earrings and Hepburn earrings.

Sophisticated Mom

The Sophisticated Mom is the very essence of a lady. Classy and well-manicured, she is always put-together.  Her uptown good taste is radiant, soft and feminine.   Katie Holmes is the sophisticated mom of 2009 as Jackie Kennedy was for the 60’s. Your Sophisticate Mom would love the Luxe convertible and the Instinct Chic in brass.

So…. which mom are YOU?  Which mom is YOUR MOM? 

 

Sneak Peek Thursday: Old World Designs Arriving April 21

The best thing about Thursdays (well, other than being one day closer to Friday) is that it’s the day you get a sneak peek of what new Twisted Silver designs are arriving on Tuesday.  This April 21 will be all about a vintage vibe with a modern twist, and the new Old World bracelet and necklace are bound to become part of your must-wear collection.

The Old World necklace is so beautiful!  Antiqued matte finish chain with designing inspired from Eastern Europe, it has an heirloom feel.  The best part is this necklace does double-duty in its convertibility: wear it as a long necklace or double wrap it for a short necklace.   Both looks are unique and amazing, and so different from each other.  Recessionistas, convertible accessories are the way to go!

The Old World bracelet takes the simple, vintage-inspired styling from the necklace to create this beautiful wrist adornment.  So style flexible, this beauty can be worn effortlessly at the workplace or at your next weekend getaway.  No matter where you take it, you’ll feel like you just found a treasure in your auntie’s jewelry box, and yet right in line with the modern metal trend.
