Jura is an island in the Inner Hebrides, adjacent to Islay and it is one of Scotland’s wildernesses. The island is known for its ascending mountains, whirlpool, and whiskey distillery and deer population. Jura has lots to offer visitors including stunning views and wildlife and is popular with walkers as most of the island can only be visited by foot. Jura has some beautiful beaches including some of the finest raised beaches in the world.
Our pretty Jura bead is inspired by its beauty and wilderness. It has been created by making a core of glass in butter pecan and then rolled in a handmade frit (tiny shards of coloured glass) and some lustre. These colours of glass have been chosen for this bead as they are found within the magnificent scenery of the island. The bead is then encased in clear glass to give it depth.
Our Isle Of Jura 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!
