Hayling Island has over 3 miles of beach which is broken into three main beaches...West Beach, Eastoke and Beachlands Central Beaches all run into each other and are mix of sand and shingle.
Hayling Islands beaches have something for everyone from sheltered bays for sea swimming to some of the best to kayak, SUP, Kitesurf of Windsurf on. In fact, Windsurfing was invented right here on West Beach!
Hayling Island has been a very popular request over the years so we wanted to make sure this bead was special!
We start with a small base bead in Purple Marble glass which is then encased in a very pale Baby Blue transparent glass. The bead is then wrapped with a Ivory glass stringer with a dot to join it, we then place Dark Grey onto this dot to create a little 'island'. The White stringer around the bead represents the beach surrounding Hayling which has been decorated with Black glass 'groynes'.
Our Hayling Island 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!
