Dog Days of Summer is coming to Downtown Mesa Friday, August 13, 6:00-9:00 PM. Come join us at the Twisted Sisters' Gallery, 48 S Robson. Don't forget that we are still giving 10% off the entire inventory and 20% off on specially marked items. Is it too soon to shop for that special Christmas gift--oh no, I can't believe I brought that up!!! Oh well...:)
Hope to see you at the Gallery Friday, August 13.

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?

2nd Friday Night

This Friday night is 2nd Friday Night Out in Mesa and the theme is an Ice Cream Social--what could possibly be more appropriate on an evening when we'll be in triple digits! So, where should you go to cool off--well, Twisted Sisters' Designs of course! We will be open until 9 PM, so come see our latest creations--enameled pieces and lots of painted silk scarves, and much more.
See you Friday!
