Tiree Bead

Sale price£12.95

The Isle of Tiree is the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides. It is a tranquil, calm and flat island with a vast expanse of white sand. It is one of the sunniest places in Britain and has warmth from the Gulf Stream. Tiree is great for surfing as it produces a mix of waves including powerful beach breaks and long waves, perfect for longboarding.

The sea lapping the white sands of the beach inspired our pretty Tiree bead. It has been made with a core of white and then carefully rolled in a speciality frit (shards of coloured glass) called spirit in the sky. While the bead is hot it is rolled in silver powder representing the reflection of the sun dancing on the sea. The bead is then encased in clear glass, which adds depth.
