Filey is a seaside town in North Yorkshire in the borough of Scarborough. It is popular with holidaymakers and has a large 5-mile stretch of golden sandy beach. it is possible to surf Filey and is popular with other water sports such as paddle boarding and kayaking.
The colours found along the beach and the rugged coastline surrounding it inspires our Filey bead. Our bead is made in a base of white and then carefully rolled in red frit, tiny shards of glass. The red is drawn from sunsets and the reflections on the sea and sand. The bead is then encased in clear glass, which adds depth and portrays the water. The bead is then decorated in grey random lines, which capture the dramatic coastline surrounding the town. To finish, it is decorated with silver, which reflects the sunlight bouncing on the sea.
Our Filey 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!
