Things We Love: Twisted Jewelry

This month, we’re helping you get twisted – Twisted Jewelry, that is.

Nathalie NavarroThe brain child of 24-year-old Philly native Nathalie”Nati”  Navarro, each piece in Twisted Jewelry is hand-crafted and unique: “I’m not in the business of mass producing the same piece, because let’s face it, that’s boring! If I did that, then the piece you buy wouldn’t be so special,” she explains.

“I make each piece once, and that’s it.” In other words, you’ll never experience that awkward moment when you run into someone wearing the exact same piece of jewelry as you.

Nati got into jewelry making in high school, and after college, her girlfriend and family gave her the courage and motivation she needed to try selling her creations. Since then, she’s made countless custom necklaces from a number of different materials, ranging from foreign currency to feathers to sea glass.

By now (if you’ve been following our Things We Love section for the last few months), you should know that of course, you can enter this month to win a custom piece of jewelry.

Tell me more, you say? Nati has crafted a one-of-a-kind necklace of dyed agate slab wrapped in silver-plated wire. And we literally mean one-of-a-kind – she’s never made this exact necklace before, and she’ll never make it again.

    Sad to say that I’ve never seen Nati’s work before! But having seen it, I love the way she uses the organic form of the agate and lets it be itself. Its not over wrought in the silver. Just following the shape and highlighting it. And I love anything purple and silver. I have to bop over to her site and check it out!

    Keep doing your thing, Nati! Lovely pieces 🙂

    This piece is beautiful! I would love to own it to have a piece of TWISTED history!

    You bring out the true beauty of the natural products that you work with… something that I have admired in the work that I have seen. Organic and natural. Keep it up!

  5. Natasha says:

    Thank you, Phillesbian for sharing Nati’s work with those of us who’ve yet to see it! I look forward to popping in sometime for First Friday. I’m happy to see the art of metals and jewelry getting its due recognition and respect–especially among the queer community. As a (very novice) metals/jewelry maker myself, I admire your interpretations and unique uses of natural elements. Keep doing what you’re doing! xx
