Emmy Nominees Mare Winningham, Dot Jones, Jason Ritter, Ben Feldman along with Carolyn Hennessy, Lisa Raye McCoy, Victoria Rowell, Jamar Rogers, RJ Mitte and more were wowed by Twisted Silver – the California based jewelry line by designer Debra Mitchell – at Doris Bergman’s Primetime Emmy Style Lounge Wednesday in a coordinated effort to help foster children. 

Hollywood, CA — 9/19/12

Twisted Silver – the California based trend-setting jewelry line by Debra Mitchell — once again wowed celebrities at Doris Bergman’s Primetime Emmy Style Lounge last Wednesday at the beautiful Tuscan country villa Café La Boheme in Hollywood.  The event benefited Wednesday’s Child’ a charity that helps foster kids find homes.

Primetime Emmy Nominees Mare Winningham, Dot Jones, Jason Ritter, Ben Feldman along with Carolyn Hennessy, Lisa Raye McCoy, Victoria Rowell, Jamar Rogers, RJ Mitte celebrated the upcoming awards and enjoyed the styling attention of designer Debra Mitchell at this highly anticipated invitation-only event.

Celebrities clustered around Mitchell at the Twisted Silver table, eager to glimpse, touch and feel the latest addictive and delightfully unconventional mixed raw metal designs.

Mare Winningham, Emmy nominee for her role as Kevin Costner’s costarin History Channel’s Hatfields & McCoys, fell mad for the Mum earrings and said,

“Right now, I’m feeling stunned! You know when you find that PERFECT pair of jeans and you never want to take them off? Twisted Silver’s a bit like that!” 

Dot Jones, Emmy nominee for her role as Coach Beiste on FOX’s Glee, spent time chatting with Mitchell.  She said of all Twisted Silver’s jewelry, “I really DIG this!”

Carolyn Hennesy, vampire Rosalyn Harris on HBO’s True Blood, was wearing Twisted Silver’s HorseBit Belt, made a bee line for the Twisted table, gushing, “Oh, I am in HEAVEN!”

Lisa Raye McCoy (who arrived wearing Twisted Silver’s Gypsy earrings) and Victoria Rowell from VH1’s Single Ladies, were obsessed with the jewelry and expressed that they “love and want it all”

Even the guys found themselves pulled in by the magnetic effect of Twisted Silver, when Mitchell previewed a “guys” ID bracelet to be launched to the public soon.

Jamar Rogers, semi-finalist on the Emmy Nominated season of The Voice, Ben Feldman, Emmy nominee for his role on AMC’s Mad Men, Jason Ritter, Emmy nominee for his role on NBC’s Parenthood, and RJ Mitte from Emmy nominated hit series Breaking Bad all left wearing their Twisted bracelets.

The jewel in the midst of all the Emmy celebrations was the solid undercurrent of giving back to this year’s charitable focus, ‘Wednesday’s Child’, a weekly segment airing on KTTV FOX 11 News, Los Angeles, that features a child in foster care who is available for adoption. Guests donated gifts for the children for a pre-holiday gift drive.  Twisted Silver donated over 200 pieces of jewelry for the girls in foster care. Debra Mitchell, a mother of three, has a tender spot in her heart for foster kids, especially older teens.  She says:

“As much fun as these events are, it is only made better by supporting a heart filled cause like Wednesdays Child.  Who’s looking out for them, preparing them for life ahead, just loving them?  It is as easy as contacting your county foster program.  With such severe cutbacks in these programs, there are so many ways we can help.  My hope is that by calling attention to this cause and donating, others might be encourage to do so as well. ” 

Debra Mitchell’s jewelry line, Twisted Silver, captures attention with mixed raw metals in perfectly imperfect and unconventionally cool designs.  Capturing a strong vintage vibe updated for spot-on trends, Twisted Silver uses reclaimed and discovered finds, upcycled for forward fashion.

Twisted Silver’s online store is at www.twisted-silver.com and can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Debra Mitchell Featured Artist at The Gallery at the Station in Ogden, UT

Debra Mitchell, Ogden Utah native and owner/designer of Twisted Silver, will be a featured artist at The Gallery at the Station in Ogden throughout the month of November.  Over 70 one-of-a-kind designs in her collection will be on display and for sale, including many of her eco-friendly creations.  Mitchell will be at the artist’s reception on November 4th from 6:00-8:00 pm.

Twisted Silver jewelry designs by Debra Mitchell are fashion forward uber hip creations in base metal, often asymmetrical, tag-and-clasp-in-front and one-of-a-kind.  Stacy London’s (TLC’s What Not to Wear) own firm, Style for Hire, and national wardrobe consulting company Urban Darling  both choses Twisted Silver as accessory staples.  Celebrities like Sheryl Crow, Maria Shriver, The Bachelor’s Ali Fedotowsky, Cougar Town’s Carolyn Hennesy and Bachelor Pad — and Salt Lake City’s own  — Michelle Money to name a few, are crazy for Twisted’s personality amplifying designs.

Ever “Eco Chic” most pieces are made from cast-off and forgotten materials and made vintage parts, then up-cycled for stunningly beautiful forward fashion.  Utilitarian parts turned gorgeous means green never looked so good.  All Twisted Silver pieces are handmade, carefully assembled in the U.S.A.  Finished designs are never mass-produced anywhere.

Noteworthy pieces to look for at the Gallery in November include the Butterfly cuff, made from a vintage art deco mold and hand-torched for distinctive beauty.  The Time earrings are recycled watch faces, artfully pounded into perfect imperfection and intentionally mis-matched.  Many never-before-seen exclusive designs will be on display and for purchase.

Tens of thousands of Twisted fans are buzzing about the addictive jewelry line on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  Twisted Silver’s line of jewelry can be found in fashion-forward boutiques across the country and online at www.twisted-silver.com.

Mentoring With Style

Jazmin Whitley — who was the youngest designer ever in a NY Fashion Week and now at the age of 22  dresses Hollywood’s hottest celebs (including Paris Hilton) and stars in TV shows — was the special guest speaker Saturday at Defining Girl Academy, a workshop aimed at empowering teen girls to find their passions in life.

Defining Girl is the non-profit brainchild of Twisted Silver designer, Deb Mitchell, who feels keenly drawn to helping young girls navigate through a confusing world. Deb says:

The world has such a loud voice — TV, movies, music, magazine, what “the crowd” is doing — that it can be hard for girls to hear that quiet voice inside that can lead them to success.  I want to show girls that it can be done.  My message is YOU define YOU… or else someone else will.

50 middle and high school Defining Girls were treated to a day of mentoring through inspiring lectures and classes that focused on identifying their dream and how to make it a reality.  The event space and catering was generously donated by Ruby Hill Golf Club.

Opening the workshop was Faith Alpher, the motivating radio personality and comedian of the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) one woman show ‘Through the Eyes of Faith’.

Then Deb chatted with the girls, delivering the point that kindness is power.  She shared her story of how at the age of just 12 years old she made a conscious decision to not follow the crowd.  To this day, Deb holds up every choice against this benchmark, in her jewelry line and in her life.  Deb showed a media presentation on Jazmin Whitley, highlighting her accomplishments at such a young age, then introduced the designer herself.

Jazmin, in a humble and shy manner, spoke candidly with the girls about her passion for designing and her drive from early on.  She revealed that her faith in God is her quiet center and her guidepost in a loud world.  Then shaking off the “seriousness” she got down to fashion.  Shrugging off her jacket and switching around her jewelry (yes, it was Twisted), she demonstrated how to change a look in a flash.  She talked and answered questions at length about life as a designer and frequently invited the opinions of her business manager, Susan Costa — who just happens to be her mom.

Afterward, all the girls enjoyed a photo op with Jazmin and delicious Sprinkles Cupcakes.  Each girl left with a swag bag of goodies.

Jazmin and Deb said their goodbyes to the young ladies and headed to Orghipchick in Livermore for a sample sale of some of Jazmin’s newest creations.  Fans stopped in to meet the two designers and get first-hand styling tips in a relaxed atmosphere.  All in all,  it was a fabulous day of mentoring with style.

Watch for upcoming Defining Girl events.  But in the meantime, how are YOU a Defining Girl?

Fashion Desginer Jazmin Whitely Teams with Twisted to Mentor Young Girls

Press Release: Pleasanton, California January 7, 2011

Award winning fashion designer and star of MTV’s House of Jazmin, Jazmin Whitely, will be in Pleasanton to host a special event for local teen girls with Debbie Mitchell, founder and designer of Twisted Silver.  The event, called  Defining Girl Academy , aims to help enable girls to start living out their own dreams. The day will consist of activities, workshops, and speakers that will encourage the girls in attendance to embrace their individuality.

Fashion designer Jazmin Whitley at age 19 was the youngest person to show at New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park. After putting on a fashion show in high school, she received enough support from the community around her to pursue her dreams all the way to success. With two show rooms in Los Angeles, her designs can be seen all over the red carpets at events such as the MTV Movie Awards, the Teen Choice Awards, and the Emmy Awards. “I look for situations where I can inspire younger girls to start now in accomplishing their dreams.  This is just that kind of opportunity, ” says Whitley. Following the event the community is invited to meet the designer from 2-4pm for a sample sale at Orghipchick located on 2074 1st St. Livermore, CA.

Mitchell started Defining Girl for young women just starting to explore their passions and dreams. She says:

“Pop culture has a loud voice. It has a way of drowning out our quiet but very important inner voice. This event is geared to helping them tune into what is unique and innately different about them. This very thing is what will allow a person to have unlimited success in this world.”

Defining Girl acts as a community of women and girls who support one another and strives to inspire and encourage individuality. The community is fueled by each Defining Girl and her own, one-of-a-kind journey. Mitchell attributes her success to the fact that she had an incredible support system and she wants to give the same opportunity to the girls today.

The Defining Girl Academy will be held at the lovely Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton, California on January 22, 2011. Interested teen girls are encouraged CLICK HERE for application information and to join Defining Girl. Applications are due January 14, 2011.
