What an amazing day…

glass-makingThank you so much, to all of you who made the time to come out in person, write in by email, call the gallery or chat with us here on facebook.  We have the most incredible group of Trollies on Earth, no question about it.  So much inspiration, so many laughs, so much love!

Georgina-at-workIf you were not able to attend in person, you missed a great day.  Georgina is such an artist, and created some truly beautiful glass beads for us.  We had a wonderful crowd out, and between sips of champagne and delectable bites of NO’s homemade brownies there were some excellent bead trades made….

So many ladies were able to find special beads to add to their collections… and even we ladies at Tartooful each picked a new treat!  There’s nothing like a new little sparkle in the bead box to inspire new compositions… I hope all of you love your new additions, and I hope to see lots of new designs over the next little while!

However, the really big question is, “who won the Jewellery box?!”

Well, after much consideration – this was *Hard*!… we finally had to select just one bracelet and story for the Grand Prize of the Trollbeads, white lacquer Jewellery Box… and the Winner is:

Iris Wong!

Iris is a recent convert to Trollbeads, but already displays great sensitivity and artistic sense when creating her designs.  She deftly composes bracelets designed to evoke certain moods – wistful, yet hopeful melancholy, warm comfort, or joyful abandon.  This one enfolds the pains of daily life into a core of strength at the heart of the design.  It’s a touching and beautiful design, and just had to have the award.  Thank you to all of you who entered your gorgeous designs.  I feel so fortunate to have been able to enjoy seeing them all!
