Trollbeads has just announced the winner of their annual People’s Bead Contest!  This is a special year as the brand is celebrating its 40th anniversary.  The theme was Celebration and there were so many wonderful submissions.  Out of all the entries, Celebrate Life by Giuseppe Di Meo from Napoli, Italy was chosen.  It will be released on September 9th and I can’t wait for its debut!

As you can see from the original drawing to the final product, it’s a pretty fair representation.  It is a faceted glass bead and I’m happy that it’s glass because I find it’s more versatile for me.  In the designer’s words, his inspiration is:

“For the People’s Bead event, I designed the bead ‘Celebrate Life’. The theme of the event was Celebration. A bead with that theme should celebrate important values and essential moments in everyone’s life.
For many people in the world these values are unfortunately only words. That is why the idea of a rainbow of light, full of life came to my mind. I designed it to bring calm and hope, and I hope that the sun will return and shine for all.”

Are you a fan of this design?  What do you think of the winner?
