I was working on a jewelry book recently and came across the word torsade in reference to a necklace. I had to stop and explore. I found out that basically a torsade necklace consists of multiple strands twisted together and held with a clasp. It is usually in reference to the pearl necklaces I’m sure you are familiar with. These are also called twisters. To the left is an example. Contemporary style finds jewelers twisting all sorts of things together including chains, ribbons, satin, and adding interesting embellishments, such as, rhinestones, charms, or crystals. I took a look at etsy to see what tosade necklaces the jewelers there were creating and include a sampling of some beautiful examples here.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
