Inspired by the beautiful beach of the vibrant seaside town of Southsea in Hampshire.
Southsea is a vibrant traditional seaside town consisting of a long flinty shingle beach that sits between Old Portsmouth and Eastney. With all its bustling restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions, there is plenty to see and do in Southsea!
Our Southsea bead was designed by Lisa Wroe as her most longed for beach to be Nalu'd!
Lisa's design is inspired by the pebbly beach which is made with ivory glass rolled in a dark frit and the sea which is represented by a transparent blue glass. The two halves are joined by a stringer with silver droplets inspired by the pier and finally the sea has been decorated with three raised dots to represent the Solent forts.
Our Southsea Beach 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!
