Essaouira Bead Bead
Essaouira has a few surf breaks and has become a mecca for windsurfing due to its strong north-easterly winds. The beach has a soft sand bottom and works best at high tide with the island De Mogador sheltering the bay.
The inspiration behind this bead was to capture the vibrant colours and atmosphere of this African city. We used a light sky blue glass for the base to represent the views out over the sea. Using a petrol green and red glass we then created a series of shapes around the bead, these were taken from the architecture and intricate decoration of Moroccan buildings. We then finished the bead off with a series of small yellow dots representative of the sun and lights of the city.
