ANewTwist aka Ilene Baranowitz
My name is Ilene Baranowitz and my shop is called A New Twist for good reason - all of my jewelry is on the cutting edge of fashion. Just open any magazine and find the hottest trends of the season and you will find all sorts of designer jewelry made from lucite or acrylic! In addition, I have tried to create items that are also most in demand - keys, mirror pendants, shoes, and lots of children & dog and cat silhouettes. Also you will find calligraphically inspired initials and other designs by Arthur Baker, the foremost American calligrapher and type designer, who I have worked with for more than 30 years. The author of more than 20 books, one of his books was purchased for the artists at Tiffany's by the art director in 1982 or 83 and one in particular copied his artwork line for line and advertised in the NY Times as "designed by that designer for Tiffany's. after some "legal wranglings" the images were removed from Tiffany's catalog and since then, Arthur and I have been trying to get HIS line produced - finding this source for laser cutting has been our answer and you have the opportunity to own pieces from the Arthur Baker Designer Jewelry Line - digitized by me under Arthur's supervision. At the same time, I created my own pieces and these are the fashion forward pieces described above. I started making beaded jewelry shortly after Arthur found that NY Times ad, realizing that his designs intended for use by graphic designers in their line of work had merit as Tiffany quality jewelry! I have a degree in Art Education and I have dabbled in all aspects of art, but jewelry design is my first love. I created a product for the craft market and I currently have a new beading apparatus close to it's first production in China. I wrote a book called "Create Your Own Bling" published by Krause Publications that has been through 2 printings and is currently retired. I have written articles for Bead Unique Magazine and my work has been featured in several books on beading. Well, enough about me for now - please enjoy my jewelry creations and consider purchasing for yourself or well-priced gifts!
