Fitness instructor Carolyn, of Dorset, celebrated winning the competition at her local Trollbeads stockist in Yeovil. Her winning design, entitled ‘Feather’, is based on the idea of spiritual ascension and freedom.
Carolyn was presented with an 18 carat gold version of her winning bead design by Trollbeads agent Kim Bartlett and proprietor of her local jewellers Anthony White, during the launch of Trollbeads’ latest collection.
After discovering a feather on an early morning walk with her dog, Carolyn was inspired to enter the competition. She took the feather home, wrapped it around a tube and made a sketch.
“When I found out that my Feather bead was one of the winners, I was speechless,” Carolyn remarked.
“All I’ve ever wanted to be is an artist. To me a feather is a sign from the spirit world, and my Feather winning was a signal that pursuing my art this year was the right direction for me to be taking!
“I love Trollbeads; they’re like mini works of art you can keep with you every day. Wearing a piece I have designed is going to be amazing!”
