The Scorpion Sisters Create a Rock'n'Roll Look with a Green Consciousness

NewYork,NY(February 2012) Scorpion Sisters is an edgy jewelry design company providing one of a kind jewelry with an alternative and trendsetting look. Inspired by the idea is to take items that have been lost or castaway and to turn them into something beautiful.

San Francisco designer, Michelle Threadgould, specialize in using vintage pieces of the highest quality to create handmade, beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry. Their designs combine reclaimed, vintage, and up-cycled materials with a modern edge.

Scorpion Sisters, founded in 2011, offer necklaces and asymmetrical earrings that are each statement pieces. Threadgould combines recycled materials like vintage pins, watch parts, and found metal with high-end materials like stones, crystals, pearls, and glass beads. Through her creativity and eye for original vintage pieces, Threadgould creates pieces of jewelry that tell their own story. “I believe in the idea of giving something a second-chance. We are all finding ourselves, and it is great to take a piece that has been forgotten or broken and to transform it into something beautiful," explains Threadgould. "The beauty was always there, it just had to be found.”


Threadgould believes in telling a story through fashion, and as a costume and wardrobe stylist, Threadgould learned that the key to good story telling is in the details. By wearing a piece of Scorpion Sisters jewelry, each person expresses their individuality and tells their own story. The designer’s aunt, Margarita Lopez, taught the designer to find inspiration in the imperfect things. During a flea market trip,Threadgould’s aunt pointed out a box of broken jewelry and asked her to imagine how these broken pieces could be brought back to life. After realizing the potential of these materials, the Scorpion Sisters were born. Inspired by making the most out of what you have and turning nothing in to something, Scorpion Sisters jewelry is notable by consumers for the one-of-a-kind statement pieces that are as green and sustainable as they are edgy and original.
