This month, we’re helping you get twisted – Twisted Jewelry, that is.
The 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.
Simply leave a comment below this post telling us why YOU love Twisted Jewelry, and you’ll be automatically entered to win the aforementioned necklace, pictured above.
You can catch Nati vending at First Fridays in Old City. To browse more of her work, read her blog, or get in touch with her directly, visit http://www.gettwisted215.com.
