Bespoke Beach Sand Beads

We all have a favourite beach...whether it holds special memories of summers past, your favourite surf spot or the place you head to to forget it all. The Nalu idea was sparked by wanting to make beads that represented our most loved beaches and now we want to take it to an even more special level.

The idea is to keep the beach with you all times! We are offering a brand new service where if you send us just a tiny pinch of sand from your special beach we'll melt it into a glass Nalu Bead.

We only need a small amount of sand, just what comes off your feet...a teaspoon will be more than enough! Please make sure the sand is clean and dry with the smallest sand particles possible. Unfortunately we cannot add any stones/sea glass/shells they will just burn up. Please note that we cannot guarantee that all beach sand will be compatible when melted and there is a possibility that we won't be able to make your bead, we haven't had on yet and we will try our very best to make it work! If your bead cannot be made a full refund will be given.

Available colours are Lavender, Baby Blue, Amber, Apple Green, Sea Glass Green, Grey, Dark Blue and Clear. We can also tumble your bead for you if you would like it to have a frosted sea glass effect, please note that the sand in the bead might not be as visible as when left un-tumbled.

PLEASE SELECT YOUR GLASS COLOUR - ADD TO BAG & CHECKOUT

DELIVERY TIMES - DUE TO HOLIDAYS PLEASE ALLOW 2 WEEKS FOR YOUR SAND BEAD TO BE DESPATCHED AS WE ARE MAKING THEM TO ORDER - please email us if you have any questions hello@nalubeads.com

We have a 2 week turnaround from receiving your sand to your bead being ready to post.

Post your sand and completed form to: Nalu, Unit 6, Velator Way, Braunton, North Devon, EX33 2FB

Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to making your special sand bead soon!

Glass Beads

Since January 2018 we have moved all manufacture of our glass beads back to the UK. We have a small team of very skilled lamp workers who are situated all over the UK as well as our in-house glass studio where we make all our limited edition and bespoke beads.

Each one of our glass collection beads is individually hand made which is why every single Nalu bead is completely unique.

We use Murano Glass made on the island of Murano in Italy…the best in the world…to make our beads. It is renowned for it beautiful reactions when melted, it’s beautiful lustre and longevity.

Our beads are annealled…this means that once the bead has been made it is placed in a kiln overnight to slowly lower its temperature and ensure that is super strong and will, hopefully, last forever!

Glass Bead Dimensions:

Diameter : 16.5mm  

Width : 9.5mm

Inner Hole Diameter : 4mm

Please note that these dimensions will vary ever so slightly due to the nature of the making process.

Bespoke Beads:

We can make any glass bead in our range to specific requirements if needed…you might want one made in a mini version or maybe you need the bead hole to be a bit bigger that our standard size to fit some jewellery you already own…we will do our best to get you the bead you need, just drop us an email at hello@nalubeads.com and we’ll be more than happy to help.
