Meet the Two Twisted Gypsies


The Two Twisted Gypsies


Michelle and Brian Tice






We are a family of creative folk, who see the beauty and value of old timey treasures. One day a mission to clean out my crafts closet, turned into "our" mission to create one of a kind re -purposed jewelry. Not only is it rewarding to breathe new life into once treasured objects, but the hunt for new things to use in jewelry creations is a great way to unwind after a busy work week at our day jobs. We enjoy all the local flea markets, auctions, antique shops and yard sales. It is so rewarding to create something new from something old.

Who put the twist in this duo?



The Truth about the name?...

As a small child I spent a lot of time with my grandparents.  My grandfather seemed to work a lot, but when he was at home and I was lucky enough to spend time with him there was never a dull moment!  He loved to tease me  about these supposed Gypsies in our area that were looking for small children to steal away from their families.  He teased that if I wanted him to, he could have them come and pick me up! Pretty twisted right?  My husband, also from the area, was also told about these supposed gypsies.  Longer story short the name ..."Two Twisted Gypsies" was born.

This twisted duo consist of myself and my husband, of thirty plus years, Brian.  We currently design our items from our home. Our creations are handcrafted from many resources including, but not limited to vintage, found objects, leather and mixed media.  We re-purpose both old and new to create our jewelry making everything we make unique and for the most part one of a kind.

You can find our items available for purchase by visiting our Etsy shop or on our Facebook Two Twisted Gypsies page.

Upcoming Festivals:

The Two Twisted Gypsies will be attending Algonquin Mills Fall Festival Friday, Saturday, & Sunday October 12, 13, 14 2018 from 9am - 5pm Carrollton Ohio.  Admission  is $8 per vehicle ( not per person) Camping is available @15.00 per night and they do have an ATM available on festival grounds.

A Gypsying We Will Go!

Today I am beginning a new necklace collection.  I will be doing a lot of hand wire wrapping of vintage beads and found objects.  I want to focus on creating one of a kind pieces as I had originally set out to do when we began designing jewelry. 

Over the weekend we visited several of our favorite vendors and met a new one, Kurt...with a K (which is how he introduced himself)  He not only had an awesome shop, but was a very down to earth kind of guy.  He had some really great items and I was shocked that I found so many things at one shop,very untapped treasures at his place.  Then off to see Sue at our other favorite shop. It was a fun day of Gypsying with my hubby. I can't wait to start putting things together.  Here is a pic of our finds from Kurt's... minus a frog earring which I have already started to work on! Wish I had done a before on him... but you will love him!  Okay enough rambling...

Here are some of our finds.
