"I was first introduced to Trollbeads in 2011, my last year living in Canada. I love stories (who doesn’t), so a bracelet which let you tell your own story was an instant fascination for me. When I discovered there was a yearly People’s Bead contest, I vowed to keep trying until I got in! This year, the theme of 'happiness' was easy to make a story for. The secret to happiness, for me, is loving yourself first, and then to love someone else."
