Today Beadsaholic brings news of the 2017 Trollbeads People’s Bead Winner!
Let’s take a moment to look back at Trollbeads People’s Bead Winner from 2016, Celebrate Life designed by Giuseppe Di Meo.
“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.”
It’s now time for the 2017 Trollbeads People’s Bead Winner to be announced and I think most of you will truly be pleased with this design.
This year’s Trollbeads ask everyone to share their ideas of their happy bead, as the result shows you can be happy for almost everything. The design with the most votes ended up being Dancing Dragons!
Designed by Lily Sun
The joy of being free to love, to find your other half in this vast world of possibilities. May you dance together for a lifetime!
This bead will come in two versions all silver and two-tone with 18k Gold.
Trollbeads Dancing Dragons – All silver retails for $31 / €28
Trollbeads Dancing Dragons – Two-tone Sterling Silver and 18k Gold retails for $345 / €315
The Artist Lily Sun
“I was first introduced to Trollbeads in 2011, my last year living in Canada. I love stories (who doesn’t), so a bracelet which let you tell your own story was an instant fascination for me. When I discovered there was a yearly People’s Bead contest, I vowed to keep trying until I got in! This year, the theme of “happiness” was easy to make a story for. The secret to happiness, for me, is loving yourself first, and then to love someone else.” Lily Sun grew up in many different places. She was born in China, but grew up mostly in Canada but with a fun year in the USA. Now she resides in Hong Kong with two dogs, a hamster, and a husband. Besides stories, Lily Sun loves animals as well as drawing them. Since childhood she has been interested in computers, art, and animals, especially drawing animals on the computer. The great love of animals and art can be traced back to her grandma, who patiently showed her how to cut butterflies out of folded paper. She and her husband met while studying Animation in Sheridan, and they’ve been an inseparable team since. For work, she has animated TV shows and also did storyboarding for animated movies. Her husband noticed how much she liked drawing animals, and so at his suggestion the two started their own company, Minidragon. Now they have made award-winning mobile games based on her creations. Born in the year of the dragon, her dream has always been to simply create a world of her own and share it with everyone. She is thankful for the chance to leave a piece of her own story in the world of Trollbeads
Over all, I think this bead will create lots of excitement for many of you. It is a great design and has such a romantic story behind it.
