Splendid is the night. A fantastic sky where thoughts, dreams and desires disappear among the myriads of shining stars.
The People's Bead
We asked our 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 through this amazing event. The company received several thousand unique designs, 24 finalists were chosen by the fans, and then the public jury voted for one winning design.
Wishful Sky Tassel is a gorgeous bead in Murano glass and Sterling silver. The designer behind the 2021 People’s Bead ‘Wishful Sky Tassel” is Gaetano Preti.
Gaetano Preti lives in Italy, in a town in Puglia called San Severo. Not far from here is the Gargano Peninsula where Gaetano used to spend wonderful summers with his grandparents and family, when he was a child. In the dark nights, Gaetano and his grandfather had long chats in the garden while lying on the sun beds watching the myriad of stars that lit up the sky.
He navigated the sky with his imagination, trying to recognize the constellations and trying to find some shooting stars to make a little wish. Gaetano entrusted the stars with childhood dreams and wishes.
You are never too old to look at a sky full of stars and dream. GAETANO PRETI
This was partly the inspiration for Gaetano’s winning design in the People’s Bead event.
Gaetano says: “For the People’s Bead event, I designed the bead ‘Wishful Sky Tassel’. I dedicate it to the people close to me, who always support me and who give meaning to my life; I also dedicate it to those who are no longer here with me and who surely live in the sky, in a star of the universe.”
The Wishful Tassel goes on sale at midnight tonight. The product will be available here and from the button below from 12:00am September 3rd which is midnight, tonight!
