My Story

I am thrilled you're here - because I bet we have a few things in common.

You're either someone who is known for having a very individual style and likes to wear unique one of a kind jewelry that makes you standout from the crowd or you just like to get tons of compliments on your amazing jewelry finds.

Here is how I got started.

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. It all started with helping my Dad every year create the families Halloween costumes. Then it was helping my Mom turn the American Legion into magical places for the local Dance Club. As I got older, I fell in love with giving my creations to the people I cared most about. There is no better gift to give or receive than that of something YOU have created.

Where I am now.

I have taken my latest passion of beading to the next level which is to create beautiful one of a kind statement necklaces using interesting combinations of gemstones, beads and fibers. But along the way I discovered that to really standout from other jewelry designers you need something that is unique and original. Through much trial and error, I invented a special twisted wire technique that I call The Twisted Sister. It makes a beautiful statement piece. Every necklace is an original! 

If you would like to stay in touch I hope you will sign up for my Twisted Sister Newsletter.  It's a fun romp on my adventures, fashion and jewelry! You will be the first to see my new creations and all sales! Be part of The Twisted Sister Tribe. Oh, and of course I would love for you to own one of my amazing pieces!


This is truly a beautiful, stunning, and unique piece of jewelry! I’m amazed at the quality of product I received and could not be happier with my new necklace!
