(PRESS RELEASE) From all over the world, designs were uploaded from people who wanted to share their vision of a new bead in the People’s Bead campaign created by Trollbeads. This is the 10th year that Trollbeads has hosted the popular design competition. Both designers and jury were found among customers and collectors with a shared passion for Trollbeads.

Danish jewelry brand Trollbeads asked its fans and collectors to help design a new bead to the ever-growing collection of inventive beads that fit the original beads-on-bracelet concept. Once again, the event inspired followers from all around the world to share their creativity and opinion. The company received several thousand unique designs; 24 finalists were chosen by the fans, and then the public jury voted for one winning design.

Turtle Flower is a bead in Sterling silver. The bead is launched with this theme: “Slow down and enjoy beauty – it is all around you.” The turtle is a symbol of Earth and helps you to stay grounded.

The designer behind the 2019 People’s Bead “Turtle Flower” is Giada Manfredi. Giada Manfredi comes from Italy and lives with her family in a small town, Casalpusterlengo. Since Manfredi was very young, her passion has been drawing. The passion came from her uncle, who was a talented artist. He showed her his work and taught her about different techniques. Manfredi has had lots of admiration of her drawings from others. During the years, Manfredi also grew a passion for decoupage and sewing.

“I have always loved turtles. Every time I go to a new city or on holiday, I search for something like a pendant or a little figure that shows a turtle. Well … my house is full of turtles!

“I found the inspiration from a holiday in Sharm el Sheik, where I was at a boat trip. I was snorkling, and I hoped to see a turtle…that was my dream. Three excursions were planned that day. During the first and the second excursions, I saw many beautiful fish but no turtles. On the third excursion I had almost given up hope. And just there I saw an amazing sea turtle that was swimming next to me! I was so excited that I could not move. It looked like the turtle was dancing, as a flower cradled by the wind.”

“Turtle Flower” is now available in stores worldwide and online at www.trollbeads.com.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
