OMG!! Is it really turning 2011 in two days?? Where oh where does the time go??
We had a great time at the Mesa Arts Festival the second week of December, and have been going full tilt since then. It's so much fun for us at this time of year because we have many husbands rushing in at the last minute looking for that PERFECT gift--some want custom pieces and others are happy with what we have in the gallery. As a result, we haven't been very consistant on our blog. I hope you will all stay with us, and we will try to turn over a new leaf in 2011 and keep you more updated on our happenings.
Don't forget that we have classes in chainmaille, Precious Metal Clay, Enameling, painted silk scarves, and Dichroic glass fusing, so give us a call and we'll set up a time convenient to your schedule.
The VERY Twisted Sisters, Debra, Mary, and Rita

Holiday Schedule

We will be open all next week, except for Thursday, so please come in and see what will fit your shopping needs for the holiday--it's never too soon to get that shopping done!!! This beautiful bracelet was a commissioned piece that Debra just completed. It's made from an antique spoon that she flattened and shaped; she then riveted on a sterling silver cross she made. The charms are a lampwork bead and a silver heart. You, too, can have a beautiful piece like this--just come on down to 48 S Robson!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Stella and I'm the official greeter at the Twisted Sisters' Designs studio and gallery. As you may be able to decern, I exhibit many of the beautiful creations the Sisters' have made. All by myself, I display a variety of pieces--a beautiful charmeuse painted silk scarf, a Precious Metal Clay and blue dichroic glass pendant, a crocheted necklace made from seed beads, another seed bead necklace decorated with a variety of glass beads, a wire crocheted necklace with pearls, and a fuzzy necklace with a lampwork focal bead (the scarf is hiding this necklace). I know I'm headless, but, nevertheless, I do my share showing off the wonderful Twisted Sisters' creations. Please come visit me at the gallery--I would love to meet you and I know you'll find what you need for the upcoming holidays. I'm at 48 S Robson, Suite 102. See you soon! Happy fashioning!

Fun Night Oct. 8

Twisted Sisters' Designs invites you to a "Make and Take", Oct. 8, during the "Monsters on Main" 2nd Friday Night out in Mesa. There will be lots of entertainment on Main Street, but you MUST come south on Robson to Twisted Sisters' and create you own bracelet for only $7.00. These pictures show two possibilities--one is stringing beads on an elastic cord--no clasp involved--great project to kids, and the other is made with glass beads and a clasp. There will be people there to help you create, so come on down and show off your creative skills.

Friday, September 17, 2010

Well, now that we've gotten rejeuvenated after completing our large order, we are off on another tangent--actually several tangents. First, creating enamel link bracelets is the rage for us.

While Debra was away, Mary and Rita had a wonderful Saturday together creating these link enamel bracelets. If you go to the web site, you will see that there are five more (for the moment) in various colors and sizes. These bracelets are very comfortable to wear--come on by the studio and pick out the colors you want, and we will custom make your personal bracelet.

Debra, meanwhile, has come up with several ideas for Halloween--more to follow on that subject when she gets back:)

Have a great and creative weekend, whatever you're doing.

New techniques produce new creations!

Hi Everyone,
Well, your twisted sisters have been very busy this last week attending workshops to refill our creative caldrons--more soldering techniques, more enameling tricks, and more knowledge cutting and working with glass. It was quite educational, and we can't wait to incorporate these new ideas into our work.
Come visit our studio and gallery in Mesa and see how we are using these new techniques. We would love to give you a demonstration how some of our pieces are created. Give us a call, 602-617-0997, and arrange a time to meet.
See you soon.
Come one, come all!!! To the Dog Days of Summer in downtown Mesa tonight, Friday. Visit the downtown Mesa web site for all the activities, but most of all, visit us at Twisted Sisters' Designs. Bring your dog--we have lots of treats and plenty of water. Let your dog eat while you browse through our original works so you can have a treat too. See you tonight.

Hi Everyone. We hope you're staying cool during our peak heat time in Phoenix--just think, we're halfway through the heat and will have beautiful weather soon:)

So, in the meantime, the twisted sisters are gearing up for a week of learning. Next week, August 4, 6, 7, and 8 we will be closed because we will be attending Art Unraveled workshops in Paradise Valley. We are really excited to learn more about the techniques we already know, and incorporate new ones into our pieces.

When you come to the studio, you will see that Debra has been experimenting with many different enamel paints and has created new pieces for you to see.

Mary is still an avid scarf painter--there are no boundaries in this medium, which suits Mary's artistic skills-she doesn't like boundaries!

And Rita has been creating mosaics, using memorabilia from her dad's collection. Here is a photo of what she has done--and she is eager for you to bring in your special treasures so she can create a masterpiece for your lasting enjoyment.

Have a good weekend. See you soon, we hope.

Mary, Debra and Rita

Hi Everyone,

The three of us have been creating what we're calling "Heirloom Necklaces" in which we included precious treasures from family members that wouldn't otherwise be seen. On the left is a picture in which Debra has included buttons from her mother, tatting from her grandmother, and beads from her favorite aunt. You are invited to bring in items you would like incorporated into a necklace or bracelet and we would be glad to work with you.

In this charm, Mary has taken a picture of her little dog, set it into a pure silver frame and covered it with resin to preserve it. Do you have a picture of an animal you would like to preserve in this way?
