Congratulations to Anne Lilleby of Norway for making it to the finalist round of the Trollbeads “Peoples Bead” design competition! Trollbeads set a theme for this year’s competition, to create a “Spiritual Collection”, and Anne’s entry is a brilliant answer to the challenge.
In describing her bead, Anne says:
“People have an urge to search for the “golden treasure” at the end of the rainbow. A dream is a wanted movement of awareness at day, an unimpeded motion at night. A spiritual floating fantasy through dimensions unknown. Suddenly you see the whole picture, or you may believe you caught it in a glimpse – but then it´s gone!
A bead with a golden core, covered with a thin layer of transparent glass in the colors of the rainbow: red/orange, yellow/green, blue/indigo and violet – but there are only 7 rainbow colors so the last 1/8 has to be clear to show a glimpse of the golden core. An armadillo design where the “shells” are opaque white, and the layers between them are transparent glass revealing the colors and the gold deep inside.
(well…maybe a straighter cut and wider columns than an armadillo?)”
Regular readers of the blog may recall that Anne, (a Tartooful regular), was kind enough to share images of her gorgeous collection with us…
