Orkney Bead

Orkney Bead


A keepsake inspired by the beautiful scenery of the archipelago of Orkney in Scotland. Collect our glass charms to create your own unique jewellery.


Orkney is an archipelago (of about 70 islands) off the north-eastern coast of Scotland. The islands are idyllic and are surrounded by dramatic sandstone cliffs and tranquil beaches. Orkney has some amazing wildlife including colonies of seals. Orkney is one of the best places to see the Northern lights in Britain.

Our Orkney bead is inspired by the stunning clear night sky and is made by mixing a speciality ivory and different shades of amber glass while hot. The bead is then rolled in Gold mica powder representative of the stars at night. The bead is then encased in clear glass to add to depth to the bead.

Our Orkney 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!
