Five Reasons to LOVE Brass

Brass is the smokin’ hot jewelry metal of choice, as seen by Twisted Silver’s crazy-popular Peace&Love designs.  And really, what’s not to love?  Check out these five really good reasons to LOVE brass…

1.  Brass finishes first:

          From blackened and antiqued to polished and shiny, brass is available in a wide spectrum of finishes.  All finishes warm skin tones, making brass so easy to wear.  It exudes an earthy natural feel that works with you.  Polished up to a gloss or rough and raw, brass finishes first. Check out the Stage bracelet and the Tre necklace.

2.  Brass is ever-changing:

          Brass is a living metal that reacts with air, water, heat and time to create GORGEOUS patinas!  Don’t even think about polishing your brass jewelry.  Your unique piece is a one-of-a-kind artwork and will be an ever-changing source of inspiration.  No two Gypsy necklaces are alike!

3.  Brass is expressive:

          Edgy or heirloom, delicate or bold, brass can accent a myriad of looks.  Add the Justice Cuff to a simple blouse to introduce a statement of strength.  Or add the Athena cuff for an interesting vintage hinting.

4.  Brass is inexpensive:

          Gold is getting more and more expensive… brass is not.  Brass allows the fashion savvy to explore statement sizes and chunky chain without breaking the bank.  It’s rugged nature holds up for years where the softer gold may scratch and bend.  See the Scroll ring and the Phatty bracelet.

5.  Brass plays well with other players:

          Metal mixing is all the way in, and brass blends beautifully with other metals.  But also try blending brass with wood, leather and beading for effortless layering and stacking.

Deb Says: Rediscover CHAIN!

img_4179.jpgTrend-setter and Twisted Silver designer, Debra Mitchell says multiple strands of layered chain necklaces is a trend with staying power. Putting your own personal stamp on it is as simple as a stroll through your jewelry box – or your mom’s or bff’s – to see what’s not being worn.  Pull it out (untangle it!) and look at it with a new chic appreciation following these fashionable considerations from Deb:

THICK AND THIN

For the most part, look for over-all balance.  That means wear large chain with large chain, small with small.  A stack of delicate chains can make as big of a sensation as a single big chunky piece.

METAL MIX

Remember to mix up golds with silvers.  Find an old piece that is tarnished?  Forgo the polish and flaunt the antique patina!  Wearing both antiqued and shiny together really does work just as well as pairing shine with shine and antique with antique.  Blackened metals are smokin’ hot right now and look fabulous with shiny or antique finishes.  

PEARLS

Don’t forget those old pearls.  Twist them together with chain, or wear them long and lean along with a substantial chain.  The glamorous-yet-edgy look will turn heads!

LIQUID SILVER

Remember how big Native American Liquid Silver strands were in the 80’s?  Dust them off, because these look great anyway you mix them up. Delicate chain or hefty, these strands have multiple personality!  Check eBay if Mom won’t part with hers.

CONVERT IT!

 

Get more than one look out of your chains.  Use your hefty long chain or multi-connected chains strands as BELTS.  A chain belt can go miles to update your wardrobe!  Take your favorite chain necklace and wrap it for a layered choker.   Transform your chokers into multi-wrapped bracelets.

 

Chain is uber chic and oh so current.  You can take it to a rocker/edgy place or a sweet delicate look.  How will you redisover chain?

Edge is the Essence

Twisted Silver line of jewelry is dynamic, an ever-changing exploration in unique style.  Some designs are big statements, while others sweet simplicity.  However, the common thread that flows through the very essence of Twisted Silver is the EDGE.

The number one best-selling edgy design are the Beatnik pieces.  Unapologetically antiqued, asymmetrical, tag-in-the-front and chunky, the Beatnik – both the necklace and bracelet — has become a signature look for Twisted and a classic wear-everywhere staple for fans across the globe.

Another edgy fan fave are the Octagon Chain earrings.  A big statement softened with delicate chain, these are the earrings that can take you from day to night effortlessly and are a “accessory staple” to define a distinctive look.
