Stress Bead

Lisa, United Kingdom

This is a Solid Silver bead with lots of different sized holes all over the surface and within all the holes are shiny silver balls. The smooth surface of the bead is oxidised to make the shiny silver balls stand out more clearly. I call this the stress bead because my son suffers with anxiety and he has a stress ball that he squeezes to help him focus and relax. The stress ball, when squeezed, pushes out little rubber extensions from the holes around it. It’s quite fascinating and soothing to squeeze.

My name is Lisa, I am 53 and I live in Cornwall, in the United Kingdom.  I am a stay at home mum and I live with my 17 year old son and my husband. My hobbies include knitting socks and crochet and another of my hobbies is sculpting animal figures in Porcelain clay. I have always loved making animal caricatures and I enjoy positioning my animals in humorous positions and giving them funny expressions! I have recently started to paint in watercolours too, which I find very relaxing, and I generally just love to make stuff! I adore colours, I have always loved colour and my moods are very affected by them day to day. 

I have previously submitted designs to one of these Trollbead competitions. I won the Pax bead as I was a semi finalist entrant in the competition way back! 

I am a huge fan of Trollbeads and I have many of them, but will always want more of them in my collection!  I would especially love to see some bright beads, in Hot Pink, Purple and Turquoise.
