Cortina d’Ampezzo is a bustling ski resort town in Northern Italy, set in the heart of the Southern Dolomitic Alps. Cortina hosted the winter Olympics in 1956 and is well known for its trails, scenery and apres-ski scene.
Our Cortina bead has been created using white Murano glass representing freshly fallen snow. It has then been rolled in our unique Italian frit blend (shards of coloured glass). We have used pinks, violet and jade green to portray the beautiful scenery found in Cortina. The bead has then been tumbled to give them a beautifully textured matt finish.
Each Nalu Bead is individually handmade so please expect there to be variations in patterns and colours, this is what makes your Nalu unique.
