What is a Twisted Sister?

I have been crafting all of my life and I never thought it would take me here. As for crafting,  I have my parents to thank for this talent. My Dad loved to make Halloween costumes and my Mother would transform the American Legion Hall each month into some spectacular venue for their dance club.  I single handedly have the Guinness Record for carnation flowers.  

After retiring from technology, I was free to explore every whim and I did. They say it is not the destination but the journey but for this post it’s my latest destination – Beads and Beading. If you are a serious crafter you know that any hobby needs a serious stash. When you are inspired to create something you can’t slow down the process by shopping for your items. I thought my knitting and crocheting period was bad but OMG beading requires a HUGE stash of stuff. Thus this crazed Beadaholic was born.

Let’s fast forward to 2 years ago. My wonderful husband had a hip surgery that did not go well. He and I, as his caregiver, were pretty much shut ins for at least 6 months. I desperately needed an outlet for all my home time and so I decided to sell my jewelry creations online. This was a perfect solution. Everyday I was here to watch and help my husband steadily improve albeit glacial and I had plenty of time to create. The triple bonus was all those necklaces needed tons of BEADS! At last, we are ready for The Twisted Sister Journey.

It all began when I got hooked on bead embroidery. Beautiful stuff but REALLY time consuming. Weeks to finish one piece and the rage was and is now really chunky collar and bib statement necklaces. Seed beads were just not going to cut it. So, I started noodling around with wire and larger beads.  I liked the wire because it gives the piece dimensions that you would never get with bead stringing. After many failed designs and attempts, I came up with this twisted wire wrap technique I call “Twisted Sister”.

Then an opportunity arose for me to teach The Twisted Sister and viola I was off and running but I had a problem with not having enough bandwidth to create, sell and teach.  So that is why I now offer Tutorials, Beading Kits AND my Jewelry.
I just finished my Chanel Crocheted Necklace Tutorial pictured here. It is so fun and really easy to make. (Even if you don’t know how to crochet.)

About twistedsisterweb

I'm thrilled you've found me because I'll bet we're a lot alike is my bet. We both appreciate beautiful jewelry and we want to purchase or make items that make us standout from the crowd. Let's face it, we love getting compliments on our unique tastes. I started making jewelry to accomplish just that but soon became so frustrated because everything looked "me too". This is why I invented The Twisted Sister Technique. This wire wrapping techniques makes an amazing statement piece. I know everyone thinks their designs are unique but in the 5 years I have been designing I have never seen any necklaces that compare to the Twisted Sister. Per so many request, The Twisted Sister Method is available for DIYers in a Beading Kit in tons of colors. I also have a Chanel Inspired Kit available. I now have hundreds of TS customers and I want you to be one too. (Note: Every necklace is a 1 of a Kind!) To thank my loyal customers I created a Twisted Sister Newsletter that is a fashion and jewelry romp! It has been so successful that I wanted to turn it into this blog so it can be shared with other Twisted Sisters. I hope you will enjoy The Twist from a Twisted Sister and please tell your friends. It is so fun! Let's chat soon!…
