People's Bead Winner
Wishful Sky Tassel
The Wishful Sky Tassel is a beautifully faceted glass tassel. A lovely representation of a wishful night sky, that can dangle on a bracelet, bangle or any of our necklaces.
A starry night with childhood dreams and wishes. "You are never too old to look at a sky full of stars and dream." - Gaetano Preti
Winner of People's Bead 2021
Gaetano lives in San Severo, Italy.
As a child, vacationing with his granparents, Gaetano and his grandfather would watch the myriad of stars that lit up the sky, trying to spot shooting stars to make a little wish.
This was partly the inspiration for Gaetano’s winning design in the People’s Bead event.
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.” - Gaetano Preti
