This beautiful glass bead has been inspired by Worthing in Sussex.
Worthing is a seaside town in West Sussex. It has an attractive seafront and lovely beaches as well as the stunning landscape of the South Downs. The town is lively with plenty of shopping and places to eat. Worthing beach is both sand and shingle and it is popular with swimmers and windsurfers. The seafront has a palm tree lined promenade, historic pier and lido.
Our pretty Worthing bead is created in two halves using an ivory coloured glass to represent the beach and a delicate pale grey. The bead is then carefully rolled in a cashmere coloured frit, tiny shards of glass, when hot around the centre of the bead where the two colours meet to represent the texture of the pebbles and shingle along the shoreline.
Our Worthing 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!
