You know she’d love Twisted Silver, but which piece to buy? Answer solved: Twisted Gift Certificates are now available for $25, $50, $75 and $100. Order and print instantly. No shipping, no waiting — heck, you can whip up the perfect gift at the very last minute. Then there’s nothing left to do but to brace yourself for the squeals of delight when she receives it.
Lesley Kennedy, style journalist for StyleList, said in a recent article that “Bangles, beads and cuffs have taken a back seat for far too long in the accessories game, and we say now’s the time to wrap those wrists in style” We couldn’t agree more! She recently turned to celebrity stylist Elle Werlin for a few tips on making the jewelry look modern. Werlin says:
Mix ’em up. “I think it is best to mix and match metals, as well as styles and sizes, when stacking bracelets,” Werlin says. “I think the more eclectic, the better, and it adds a more Boho chic feel. One could wear last year’s frock and add a bunch of bangles and cuffs, creating a whole new look.”
Dare to be different. Werlin suggests wrapping your mother’s pearls around your wrist. “Adding a brooch can make a chic look for evening,” she says.
Let your bracelets be the stars. “I think if you are piling up the bangles, you should avoid any other statement pieces,” Werlin says. “If you are wearing a head-to-toe neutral look, which was shown throughout the spring shows, then you can add a funky colorful Lucite-like or ceramic necklace. Otherwise, stay clear of any other jewelry. Wearing one bronzed metal cuff alone can also be fantastic. If you want to channel your inner Stevie Nicks, then add a fringe leather necklace.”

Moms-To-Be can be just as Twisted as they were before they conceived. In fact, we think they should be. As their preggo body shape changes, fashion-forward mamas can accessorize artfully. Looking good = feeling good… all important for hormone-induced blues. Plus there’s that part about jewelry always fitting. Take a look at our picks:
The Esmerelda necklace goes the distance, moving with changing shape and mood. It can an be multi-wrapped (as shown) or just double-wrapped, or worn all the way long. Best part? It’s super light weight — a big bonus to combat that pregnancy-induced “don’t-touch-my-skin” creepy feeling.
A great pair of earrings can offer visual balance to your baby bump. Try the Balance earrings — weighing in at less than a half of an ounce, you get a big show without a big heavy. The Luck bracelet is such a “notice me” piece, yet still simple. Pull it all together with the XO Belt for the perfect baby-framing silhouette.
We also think big statement rings are amazing for the maternity wardrobe, in spite of their bad rap for fear of swollen fingers. The key to making it work? Get a size (or two?) bigger than you normally would. Wear a big ring on whatever finger fits that day. It will become the conversation piece as you grasp your cup of raspberry tea. The ring shown is a special design not available online, but try the same idea with the Vibe ring or the Sunshine ring.
Winter sweaters and cozy knit hats are due for an effortless Twist up. Check this week’s Fave Pairing: the Forge earrings and the Phatty bracelet. You can wear ’em right this minute for current-perfect style, or to give them as a gift to be worn year round for seasons to come. In honor of the the fave pairing, just for you is a special limited offer of the Phatty bracelet for $30 (reg price $50). How much do you love??
Take a look at the new Indulge necklace from Twisted and tell me it’s not luxy. It’s a new word we just made up, we know, but it totally fits. An eclectic collection of salvaged chain — especially the long snake chain — is scrumptiously light and regal. Wear it as shown, or even upside-down to indulge your holiday in multi-layered style.
Marry Me, an original mini-series on Lifetime TV starring Lucy Liu, premieres Sunday and Monday, December 12 & 13 at 9PM et/pt. Also starring is Danielle Nicolet (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Starter Wife, Third Rock from the Sun) … who you will see wearing Twisted Silver in the film.
Set your DVR and watch a little heart-warming romance. Marry Me tells the story of one woman’s quest for her fairy tale “Prince Charming.” When her wish is granted three-fold, she must choose. Watch the preview below, and then on December 12 and 13 see if you can spot the Classic XO bracelet, Bubbles bracelet, Lily necklace or Luck necklace.
Laura and Candice strike again with a surprise style raid, this time with the Nouveau Boho look. Layers, ruffles and a free spirited attitude is what this trend is all about, and Twisted Silver has the designs to pull the look together.
Watch the video below then head on over to your closet. Can you twist up the Nouveau Boho look?
Candice is wearing the Indulge necklace (coming December 2010) and the Square One ring.
