Nazaré Bead

Nazaré Bead


A glass charm inspired by the big surf at Nazaré in Portugal. Collect our keepsake glass beads to create travel bracelets and other surf travel jewellery.


Nazaré is a town in the Leiria District in Portugal. It is a popular seaside resort on the Silver coast. It is a world renowned big wave surf destination as massive waves can form due to the long range Atlantic swells hitting the Nazare’ Canyon. The biggest wave ridden here was a humongous 100ft!

Our collection of BIG wave beads have been created using a technique referred to as ‘gravity’ beads. The glass is heated to such a high temperature that you are then able to mix and swirl the glass together creating beautiful patterns. These patterns represent the powerful swirling and tumbling of enormous waves when they hit shallow off shore reefs. Although the same colour glass has been used for each bead, the technique makes each bead completely unique. We’ve added a little sparkle to portray the magic and excitement of watching BIG waves!

Each Nalu Bead is individually handmade so please expect there to be variations in every bead. This is what makes your Nalu unique.
