This beautiful glass bead has been inspired by Cuckmere Haven in Sussex.
Cuckmere Haven is a quiet pebble beach where the meandering Cuckmere River meets the English Channel. The beach has a dramatic backdrop with the coastguard’s cottages and the Seven Sisters Cliffs and has been used as a location in a number of films. The stretch along the meandering Cuckmere River to the beach is popular with walkers and water activities such as kayaking and paddle boarders.
The meandering Cuckmere River inspires our Cuckmere Haven bead and it has a waving line of turquoise glass over a beautiful bright green. It is then encased in clear glass to add depth. One side of the bead is then wrapped in white glass to portray the expanse of cliffs.
Our Cuckmere Haven beads are made by Sarah in our studio in Braunton, North Devon.
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!
