About Us

Leslie Pope, aka “Twisted Sistah” has a PASSION for BEADS and FIBER!

As a fashion design student at Drexel University, she managed to work beads into most of her collections, winning the J.W. Smith Most Saleable Daywear award for her senior design collection of beaded knitwear. Since graduating, she is almost always seen with beads and fiber in hand, a source of great joy in her life, along with her helper cat, Fred, a lynx-point Siamese.

Leslie became Twisted Sistah when she opened her traveling/web-based bead business in 2002 and hasn’t looked back since. Her business is devoted to BEADS and FIBER and offers a wide range of seed beads, threads and supplies that support the creation of BEADED WEARABLE ART.

Her love for her craft is contagious, as her ever-growing list of happy customers will attest.
