Hello! My name is Nina DiMambro and I am the creator and owner of Twistful Thinking! I am twenty six years old and my passions in life are my jewelry, cooking and eating vegetarian food, spending time with my family and my amazing boyfriend, and my little rescue pup Stella! I am a very go with the flow kind of person but when it comes to my business I don't mess around.
I also have an intense gratefulness for life and all it brings. About twelve years ago I became very sick and saw many doctors that were unable to diagnose my illness. One year after the symptoms had started, I was finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I began treatment but over many years I missed the majority of middle school and high school. I ended up getting my GED but still graduated in the top percentage! Throughout the years of fighting this disease, I was unable to hold a job, go to school, or have a normal social life. That's where Twistful Thinking came along!
In the fall of 2015, I needed some kind of creative outlet to take up my time and natural stones and wire became my medium. My creations started gaining traction with my friends and family and they encouraged me to continue and make it into a business. Thankfully my health has never been better and 2016 was my first official year as a registered business! I was able to participate in many festivals and art fairs and build my social media platform. I absolutely love being at art fairs because I get to meet tons of new people and watch them get excited about something I have created. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I hope to continue building my business and continue bringing women and men quality accessories that carry a positive natural energy!
Twistful Thinking jewelry is made with hand picked crystals, semi-precious stones, agates, cruelty-free deer suede, and more. Everything is an original and mostly a one of a kind design. All pieces are hand wrapped by me using .925 sterling silver and copper wire!
My absolute favorite material to use is the 100% cruelty-free suede cord! It is hand dyed and hand cut in the USA on a deer sanctuary/farm. No deer is harmed for the suede! That is very important to me being raised vegan. This suede cord is butter soft and comes in many unique and vibrant colors. You can find it in many Twistful Thinking designs!
