Westward Ho! Bead

Westward Ho! Bead


A gorgeous glass charm souvenir inspired by surfing at Westward Ho! Devon. Collect our Murano glass beads and create beautifully unique surf style jewellery.


Westward Ho! is a seaside village near Bideford in North Devon. It lies at the south end of Northam Burrows and is separated from Saunton Sands by the River Taw. It was named after Charles Kingsley’s novel Westward Ho! (1855)
Westward Ho! has slow crumbly beginner-friendly waves and is also a popular beach for kite surfers. There is a huge pebble ridge that runs along the entire length of the beach.

The Westward Ho! bead is made with yellow glass to represent the long sandy beach with the white lines representing the white water washing onto the beach. The white and grey dots represent the large beautiful pebbles of the ridge that frames this beach.

Our Westward Ho! 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!
