Nalu beads are inspired by surf spots known or spots you tell us about. Sometimes it’s the colours – the sky, the sea, the coastline – that characterise a break or a beach. Sometimes it’s the feel or the mood of a place.
Once they have the vibe they work with designers from around the world to come up with a Nalu bead that reflects the place. With design in place, this is where every Nalu bead sets off on its voyage.
The glass they use comes from Murano, a small island near Venice, which for centuries, has had a reputation for being home to some of the world’s finest glass makers.
The colours are hand mixed so that no two batches of glass are ever the same. Every combination of colour produces a different effect, creating an organic quality that gives the Nalu bead its distinctive appearance.
