"I found a feather on one of my early morning dog walks and was inspired to design it into a Trollbead. I wrapped it around a tube and sketched the design. Wearing this bead will to me be a constant reminder of spiritual guidance and help."
Carolyn Brettell is one of the winners of People's Bead 2012 and designed Feather for the Spiritual Collection.
