Dream Bead:  Four Seasons Gold by Tomas Cenius

Tomas Cenius began his journey as a silver designer as a self taught artist.  He began his career modelling comic book figures in clay before learning the art of wax modelling from Soren Nielsen.  Under Soren’s tuition Tomas became a master of the craft and created jewelry for Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, but prefers designing jewelry that anyone can afford and enjoy.  Now an acclaimed artist, he describes his style as clean, Nordic design combined with figurative forms.

“Essentially my goal is to make beautiful jewelry that touches people. I give the same attention to every piece, whether it is for the Royal couple or the lady next door.”

“When I work with Trollbeads I like the fact that I design something that defines human emotions.”

“My role model was Kaj Nielsen, a great modeller. He taught me the most important tool when you are making sculptures: To work with the shadow boundary!”

To celebrate this memorable occasion, Tartooful is throwing a Trollbeads event to remember…
