I'm trying to model what is shown in this image. I'm new to Blender and struggling. I've tried doing it as a curve with a Bevel > Object but I can't get it to 'twist' like it is shown in the image. Can anyone help?

Thanks enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ It may be possible to make this in 3D, with some work, essentially fighting against the natural 3D geometry, normals, lighting ... but this looks to me like a fundamentally 2D illustration.. e vector outline filled with gradients. $\endgroup$

Use your image as reference, make a series of extrusions:

As you're about to bevel and you want your bevel to work, cut an edge somewhere in the middle:

Bevel:

Give it a material, put some lights:
