Long Sands is a sandy beach in Tynemouth. It is popular all year round for family days out, bathing, beach sports and surfing; it has held the national surfing championships. The beach has an adjacent park, aquarium, museum and shops.
Rolling waves and the sandy beach inspires our pretty Long sands bead. It is a gravity swirl bead, which mixes different coloured glass at a very high temperature, and they then begin to mix together. The bead uses layers of ivory and amber glass portraying the sand and a speciality silver glass that adds blues and a shimmer representing the sun reflecting on the sea.
Our Long Sands 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!
