Durban is the largest city in the province of Kwazulu- Natal, South Africa. It’s a busy port and major tourism destination. Durban or ‘Surf cIty’ as it is commonly known has a golden mile of beautiful white sand beaches set with a number of groins and piers lapped by the joining oceans of the Indian and Atlantic.
The inspiration behind this bead was to capture the hustle and bustle of the city against the contrast of the sea and sky. The orange half of this bead represents the rich African sunsets whilst the Lapis/Ivory half, the ocean. Nalu then wrapped a stringer of silver leaf around the middle reflecting the city against its sandy beaches.
Each Nalu Bead is individually handmade so please expect there to be variations in patterns and colours, this is what makes your Nalu Bead unique.
