Portland Bill Bead
Portland Bill is the most southernmost point of Dorset at the southern end of the isle of Portland in Dorset. It is the southernmost point of Dorset. it is famous for its lighthouse and incredible views across the English Channel. Portland is known for its treacherous waters and has been notorious for a number of shipwrecks over the centuries. There are some wonderful walks around the coast path. There are two small raised beaches either side of Portland Bill.
Our Portland Bill bead is inspired by its iconic lighthouse, which is painted in a distinct red and white paint and we have created a gravity swirl bead using white and maraschino red glass which mix and swirl together under extreme temperature. The bead is then rolled in frit, tiny shards of coloured glass, that represent the surrounding rocks and headland.
