North Uist falls right in the middle of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. This island is a haven for wildlife and boasts the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. The landscape is a mixture of sandy beaches, fresh & salt water lochs and crofts.
Inspired by North Uist's white sandy beaches and crystal seas reflecting purple skies at sunset. We've made this bead with half transparent lavender and half pearl grey glass, we then rolled the bead whilst still hot in a blend of frit that we've made up especially for North Uist. The bead is then tumbled to give it a frosted finish with texture.
Our North Uist 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!
