New Bosom Buddies, Sets, and a Facebook Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone,

Bosom buddies have been a huge hit, especially in October for Breast Cancer awareness month. There are lots of new styles of Bosom Buddies in my Etsy shop for you to look at and £1 from every sale still goes to cancer research UK.

This bosom buddy was made with Val Cox frit "Ocelot Spots" and gives this gorgeous mottles appearance of colours.

I've also listed a couple of sets in my Etsy too including "Fortnums" which has some gorgeous Val Cox frit called Cherry Blossom.

For mailing list members, I'm offering 10% off all beads for the rest of November. All you have to do is email me at shahlaa@hotmail.co.uk requesting to be on the mailing list and I'll refund you your 10% back.

I'm also having a facebook giveaway! Once my fans hit 200 on my facebook fan site I'll give away this gorgeous, sparkly winged angel heart. So you need to be a fan on my facebook page and also "like" the competition post with the details on. http://www.facebook.com/pages/All-That-Sparkles-Beads/178997142835

You can see all my for sale beads here on my ETSY

Thanks for all your support,

Where have I been hiding???!!!

Well I've not been hiding exactly but I've definitely been out of action. I've had my medical school finals and been somewhat of a hermit while I revised for them. I have now passed them and well on my way to becoming a doctor :)

But I won't stop there! I've been back at the torch after months of revision and come up with a few goodies. They are all available on my Etsy here: ETSY

I hope you enjoy!

These 2 hearts have been inspired by the Amber Opals tutorial going around.

I've also been playing with some of Val Cox's new and old frits. The following are Playdays on unique butter pecan by CiM, and Bea's Bonnett on vetrofond light pink.

Been a while!!

Hello all! Has been a while hasn't it! Has been a rollercoaster of a few months. On the bright side, in April some friends and I went to the Flame Off, which is a massive lampworking convention at Towcester Racecourse. I saw many demos by great artists there and soent time with some great lampwork friends. I also won the public vote in the GBUK (glass beadmakers UK) competition for my entry "too many hats, so little time"! Very proud and excited to have been voted for by my own colleagues. I was also commended by one of the judges, Sharon Peters. My entry is below.

On a slightly sadder note, I was told a few weeks ago that my father, who has been fighting bowel cancer for 4.5 years, is no longer responding to treatment and now has months to live. I am still trusting God for a miracle but it has been and is a difficult time at present for me and my family.

I got some beautiful glass at the flame off so thought I'd share some pics of my new work with you.

"Too many hats, so little time"

Multicolour Dark Tabs

Multicolour Dark Heart

Remember if there are any beads (except the hats!) you would like to purchase, drop me an email to shahlaa@hotmail.co.uk

Lotsa love!

New beads & a preview idea!

Hello Lovely people!

I'm so  sorry i'v not blogged in a while, but unfortunately my camera has been broken and just came back from being repaired. I've had lots of beadies just sitting here waiting to go!

Got quite a few beadies for you to see, but before i do i thought i'd share an idea I've been working on. My hubby loves bassetts allsorts so i thought I'dmake some from glass! these are just a prototype and need a little tweaking but i will be taking orders for them in the very near future.

Right now here are my latest beadies for you to have a nosy at, some of these will be on etsy in the next couple days.


Aurae Shard Heart


 Union Jack Heart & spacers

Twilight Pansies


And finally a pointy flower!

Lots of love and happy easter (in advance!)
