Mother Ivey's Bay Bead

Mother Ivey's Bay Bead


A memento and keepsake, this Murano lampwork glass bead is inspired by Mother Ivey's Bay in Cornwall. Collect our glass charms to create unique beach jewellery


Mother Ivey’s Bay is a beautiful Northeast facing sandy beach which lies just round from Harlyn Bay in Cornwall behind Trevose head, Padstow. The beach gets its name from, mother Ivy, a local wise-women white witch from the late 1800’s. At low tide there are several coves and it is popular with walkers and although not popular for surfing it is used by body boarders.

Our pretty Mother Ivey’s bay bead was inspired by the shimmering water, grass headlines and sandy beach. The core of the bead is made from a speciality glass named Caribbean sea which blends tones of green. The bead is then encased in a beautiful transparent blue glass representing the blue of the sea. A thin layer of Ivory glass is then carefully wrapped around the bead, inspired by the sand and then a layer of the Caribbean sea glass which denotes colours from the grasses found on the headline. The glass is then carefully twisted to produce a swirl representing the rolling waves.

Our Mother Ivey's beads are made by Josephine in her studio in St. Agnes, Cornwall.

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!
