Islay is the southernmost of the Inner Hebrides islands off the west coast of Scotland. Islay lies in Argyll and Bute and neighbours Jura. Although Islay is famous for its whiskey distilleries it is a beautiful peaceful island with picturesque villages, beaches and stunning views for walking.
Our beautiful Islay bay has been made using a core of pearl grey, which is then rolled in frit and gold foil, these colours have been chosen as they represent the sun shining on the beaches and the alpenglow along the coastline. The bead is then encased in a light amber glass to add depth.
Our Islay 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!
