We at Wusgood know that art is not reserved to what we find hanging on museum walls. We celebrate creative visual works that highlight the ingenuity of black people – objects and works that look good and reflect some aspect of urban culture.
Tira Heard, founder of Totally Twisted Wearable Art, captures this same enthusiasm. Her handmade jewelry not only looks good on us, but also focuses on healing and uplifting people through visual, wearable art.
GET TWISTED WITH TOTALLY TWISTED WEARABLE ART
KIOSK TO OPEN IN LAS VEGAS NOVEMBER 1, 2016
Cleveland, OHIO, October 12, 2016 (eReleases) – For women who want to increase self-esteem while still embracing their individuality, TOTALLY TWISTED offers socially conscious wearable art, soon to be available in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each piece of art is uniquely hand crafted using copper wire, precious gemstones, fresh water pearls, crystals and or glass beads. These items currently are available online and most recently on the Marketplace in the Knot magazine. As of November 1, 2016, Totally Twisted will branch out to Las Vegas Nevada in a kiosk at Summerlin Mall.
The copper used to make most art pieces, not only is aesthetic but also has healing properties. Copper may help to ease headaches, arthritis, joint pain, and zinc deficiency. The gemstones used also have many different healing properties depending on which gem is used. Totally Twisted ensures that each art piece is one of a kind.
Totally Twisted was founded in 2011 by Tira Heard as a way to use her gifts of creativity and design. Heard fuses her love of fashion and her passion for women’s empowerment into her designs which are meant to allow women to “embrace their individuality”. This is what sets Totally Twisted apart from other lines of jewelry. Heard is a member of an international arts organization called RAW Artists and has participated in RAW Cleveland and RAW Miami. Totally Twisted designs have been featured and sold in various boutiques and galleries around the world.
