Pax. The Peoples Bead Design winner for 2009. This Trollbead was the first winner as the contest was started in 2009. The dove enveloping the earth holding an olive branch in its beak spreading the message of peace throughout the world. Wearing the Pax bead signifies your desire to help promote world peace in any way.
Designed by Suzanne Hopping of Australia.
Suzanne is a very successful graphic artist and her design won the heart of many voters for the first ever People's Bead Contest. Suzanne is featured in the Trollbeads Coffee Table Book "Trollbeads: An Icon In Jewelry Design" If you haven't seen or purchased the book yet follow the link, it is a superb volume of historical photos and information and a must have for all Trollbeads collectors.
Suzanne came to Trollbeads Gallery's "Trollbeads Fest! 2010" held in Massachusetts and signed books and chatted about her design. We were lucky to have her and her husband join us.
Pax was retired in January, 2014.
Indeed a winner!!!
