Philippines Bead

Philippines Bead


A keepsake travel charm to remember surf trips to the Philippines. Collect our handmade glass beads to create travel bracelets and other surf travel jewellery.


The Philippines is a Southeast Asian country in the Western Pacific. Made up of over 7000 islands which are categorised into three main divisions being Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao it’s capital is Manila.
Surfers head for the Philippines to score good surf minus the crowds with the prime destination being the famous Cloud 9. Baler is the birthplace of surfing in the Philippines made famous by the memorable surf scene in the 1979 film Apocalypse Now.
The inspiration behind this bead was to capture its amazing culture. We’ve used cobalt blue and a bright red glass, colours found on the Republic Of Philippines flag. Starting with an Ivory base bead, we decorated it with a large blue stripe, interpreting the ocean, and a series of black lines representing the structure of the pier at Cloud 9. It was then finished off with a series of flattened red dots.

We try our very best to keep the patterns on our beads as consistent as possible but due to the nature of each one being individually handmade, please except there to be variations in each bead...this is what makes your Nalu unique!
