Beautifully crafted and gorgeous ring. Exceptional attention to detail, quality, and customer service. Melinda is a gifted artist/seller who went out of her way to make this ring exactly as I requested. My purchase was nicely packaged and shipping was prompt. Thank you for such a pleasant transaction.
Twists & Gems is a sole proprietorship -- a silver studio located in Devers, Texas
Making unique jewelry is something I have done for many years, but the creation of Twists & Gems -- my silver studio across the yard from my log home -- occurred in 2004.
I have always worked independently and have sold my work on consignment in museum gift shops, local shops and at crafts fairs as the opportunities presented themselves to me. But to be able to associate with Etsy and the many creative individuals who have Etsy shops is a real pleasure for me.
A few students have sought me out from time to time -- either individually or in small classes, but the work that represents Twists & Gems is all produced by me. I use traditional silver smith techniques including fabrication and forging for foundations of many of these pieces. In addition, I often create pieces using wire wrapping techniques. Most recently, I have discovered precious metal clay, and have found that it can be used alone or in combination with traditional or wire wrapped techniques. I have begun learning a few chain maille weaves for bracelets, key chains, and the like chains..
Colored gemstones have always held a special fascination for me, and I use the ones that I have long ago collected as well as ones that I still purchase from time to time. The cubic zirconia being produced these days in all sorts of beautiful colors are a great deal of fun to work with as they are affordable even in hugh sizes for great statement pieces -- and they can be fired in place on Precious Metal Clay pieces.
As you view the work that represents Twists & Gems, you will begin to recognize the many combined techniques. I hope that you will enjoy seeing them and appreciate the value of owning a piece or two as well. Come back often to see what is new, and share the shop with your friends and family who might also enjoy unique twists on gems.
Customer Service is as much a speciality in this shop as is the high quality of our hand crafted jewelry. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or comments about an item. If you want a similar item in a different size or color, please let me know, and I will discuss the custom creation of an item just for you. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
