Teen designer,Twisted Metal

At 13 years old, Alex Krosovic has accomplished more than most people twice his age. Excelling in academics, running cross-country, playing 4 instruments (piano, guitar, sax and trombone), fishing and kayaking, I wonder when he has time to create jewelry.

He’s been designing jewelry since he was 10. Wrapping and twisting wire into intricate shates and designs, the name “Twisted Metal” was a no brainer.

His sterling silver twisted wire rings grew in popularity and were so highly coveted that Blocher Jeweler of Ellwood City, Pa. (his hometown), partnered with Alex who began designing one-of-a-kind pieces and offering jewelry repair for their patrons.

During a brainstorming session at Spoiled Chics the Boutique in Sewickley, Pa., a collaboration of ideas ensued which will result in a new, hip, edgy collection of jewelry. Featuring details such as multi layered chains, mixed metals, leather strands, his current line of bone, wood, stone and ‘river glass’ will take on a whole new chapter of style.
Alex Krosovic, Twisted Metal, and his business partner/mom, Sondra Krosovic, also a designer,”On the Rocks Jewelry” will both be featured at a Trunk Show:

The Girlfriend Recovery Club is a diverse group of women interested in joining together to help one another get thru the tough times.
We understand the power of friendship and how these bonds can support recovery.

Any DONATION that you make will make a difference in the recovery of a friend. A dollar might bring hope to one in dire need, just by reading an article that inpires them. Two dollars might put a lonely person in touch with someone who will listen. Five dollars might bring a real ‘hug’, a listening ear, an open heart.
