A bead design by an artist and fitness instructor from Dorset has been included in the Trollbeads People’s Bead 2012 Spiritual Collection.


Carolyn Brettell designed a silver feather-inspired bead that has become one of 11 designs from round the world to be included in the collection. 

The Trollbeads People’s Bead 2012 Spiritual Collection is based on designs selected from the finalists of the entries to Trollbeads annual People’s Bead Competition. The international competition, which was established in April 2009 was this year inspired by the theme "Share your spirituality".

Trollbeads marketing director Bettina Lovstrom Pedersen said: “We raised the bar and gave our customers a complex theme this year and they responded beautifully. The result is phenomenal.”

A silver necklace with Fantasy Onyx designed by Trollbeads creator Lise Aagaard will be launched at the same time as the People’s Bead Spiritual Collection.
