Local Featured Seller: Twisted Love

Who are you? Mickey Snowdon and Brianna Travell; co-creators of Twisted Love
Where are you located?  Charlotte, North Carolina

What do you create? 
We create handmade wire wrapped metal jewelry.

What is your favorite place to visit in the "triangle?" 
Our favorite place to visit in the “triangle” is Chapel Hill. We appreciate the independent music and art scene.
Cosmic Copper Earrings
When did you start creating?  We began creating Twisted Love October 2012

Why did you choose your medium?
~ Mickey: I like the flexibility and freedom of using metal. Adding fun beads and intricate wrapping act like adornments to the base metal, and I like contrasting silver and copper.
~Brianna: I like the rustic look metal has to offer in jewelry. I like the ability to create pieces for people to wear as an expression of artistic form rather than an accessory for an outfit.
What/who inspires you?
~Mickey: I think examining things like the way branches in trees twist together and other designs found in nature inspire me the most.
~Brianna: I find inspiration in the music we play while we create our pieces. I also really enjoy gathering inspiration from other artists who focus on steampunk pieces.

Where do you create?  Currently our studio consists of a plastic folding table in the middle of our living room. Our table/office happens to be adjacent to our eleven year old Chihuahua’s bed.
Why did you choose your shop/company name?
  We create pieces we love and add a twist!
What are your goals?
We aim to eventually run our own studio/farm. We would like to have ample space to create and allow others to create as well. In addition to the studio we would like to have our own farm compound.
