Getting ready for Christmas!

Hi everyone,  I hope you are all well and looking forward to Christmas,  I can’t believe how quickly the festive season will soon be upon us!

It has been quite a while since I last wrote in my blog, but I thank you for all your well wishes whilst I was ill. My Colitis has been a little unpredictable this year and the tablets I was taking made me feel exceedingly tired, but thankfully I have started a new regime and feel much better :) This has given me a lot more energy and a renewed spirit for making new creations and prayer beads. The site will include some new rosary designs in time for Christmas,  and I’m busy making some devotional chaplets too! I have been receiving many bespoke orders over the past few months and it always makes me feel truly blessed to help my customers create their perfect gift – thank you again for all your kind words and lovely comments upon receiving your handmade pieces. 0marybluesm

I will be adding the last postal dates on the site in a few weeks, please make sure you order in time if you need your handmade gift as a Christmas gift. I will add the dates on twitter too in case any of you are following me on there :)

Wishing you all a truly beautiful weekend, with much love and blessings, Emma Jane

10% Discount on All Bracelets

Hello everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying a few of the sunny days we’re having. forget-me-not-bouquetSpringtime is trying it’s hardest to appear isn’t it, and when the sun does shine it certainly lifts my spirits – it’s also helping the forget-me-nots to appear in their thousands in the garden :) Aren’t spring flowers absolutely beautiful!

I have been very busy with the Holy Communion season and adding new products to the web site. I’ve also got a sale on at the moment, with 10% off all bracelets throughout my site. It appears to be very popular as all the rosary bracelets have now gone! So thank you!

There will be a few changes on Atalya Designs over the coming months, with fewer jewellery items and more prayer beads. I’m no longer taking any personalised orders in the future as this is too pressured for me. As most of you know I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis and this can sometimes flare-up during the year, and as my health is important I think it’s time I slowed down a little.  The personalised items are needed in such a fast time it’s hard to keep up – so, these are no longer being taken. I’m still however, taking bespoke orders (different beads, crosses etc) so you can still order those :)

The site will become a little smaller but with just as much love and care being taken to provide my customers with beautiful prayer beads and rosaries. I hope you will enjoy the site just as much as you do now. My handmade products are also being sold on Spiritual Blessings and Simple Blessings if you fancy buying other gifts at the same time (i.e. greeting cards etc) – they also offer the option of paying with your debit card other than PayPal.

It’s always a blessing connecting with my customers and I thank you for all your kind words regarding my handmade designs, it’s a pleasure to serve you! Wishing you all a truly blessed week filled with the Lord’s love and Heavenly light, take care and God bless, Emma Jane x x

Happy Easter!


To all my beautiful friends and customers, I’d like to wish you all a truly wonderful and blessed Easter filled with the Lord’s heavenly love and light. I hope you have a lovely Easter holiday!

I’ve been adding some more rosaries to the web site and finishing some bespoke orders too, it’s been a wonderful time of renewal, creativity and new ideas! I’ll be adding some Confirmation rosaries over the coming months as I don’t have any rosary beads featuring the Holy Spirit medal…and that won’t do :) I have been inspired to create a page dedicated to them, so that will be coming soon – I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

I’ve recently added two new Holy Communion rosaries and an Easter rosary called The Good Shepherd – I just love how it’s turned out! It’s been lovingly created from blue sponge quartz, red coral beads and antique agate – here’s a picture for you to see all three new rosaries, I hope you like them….

I’ve recently completed a bespoke order for a beautiful soul in Wales and have begun another Holy Communion bespoke order today, I feel very blessed to have so many wonderful new customers buying from my web site – it’s a blessing to know you all! Thank you for making my job so rewarding and special, I feel very humbled by all your kind words and love.

Whatever you may be doing this coming Easter, may it be filled with joy and the blessings of this holy Season!
Take care and God bless you all, Emma Jane x x x 


Spring is Coming!

Spring-Blossom-SunshineHello everyone! It’s been a while since I last wrote in my blog/diary and sent an email to all my dear friends and customers – I do hope you’re all well and looking forward to Spring and Easter. New buds are starting to sprout in the garden and new life is springing forth from the ground – it’s so beautiful to see! I do love Spring and the welcome sight of the sun shining upon the Earth :)

Holy Communion Rosary

Holy Communion Rosary


What have I been up to I hear you ask? Well, I’ve been quite busy restocking my rosary beads after the Christmas season and creating new designs for the coming months. The Holy Communion season is soon approaching and with that in mind I’ve created a new rosary using lilac jade gemstones and silver flower beads for little girls. It’s turned out quite well, very cute! I hope you like it too…..
I’ve also created a Sacred Heart of Jesus rosary using faceted dream agate and coffee agate gemstones, these stones combine really well together and provide a lot of healing energies to promote harmony within the mind, body and spirit. Just beautiful! I’ve also added two new sterling silver rosary beads (told you I’d been busy!) – and they can both be found on this page:


Here are the three new rosaries for your to peruse, they’re made using some lovely gemstones – dream agate, coffee agate, fossil crinoid, blue impression jasper and antique agate. I do hope you like them! I thoroughly enjoyed creating them…..

I’m also on Pinterest, if you would like to Follow me then I’d be honoured and blessed if you did – here is my page for you to view and enjoy –– I look forward to seeing you there! I’ve also had a thought about writing more frequently in my blog/diary to keep my customers more up to date – I promise not to bombard you with constant notifications everyday, but maybe once a month or twice a month might be nice :) Let me know if this doesn’t appeal to you and I can revert back to just once every two months.

Until next time, sending you much love and Divine blessings, God bless, Emma Jane x x 

Happy New Year for 2013!

Happy New YearHello everyone! I’d just like to wish all my dear customers and friends a truly blessed and Happy New Year, may all your hopes and wishes be fulfilled, and may the Lord God guide you throughout the coming year. Wishing you all a beautiful 2013!

I am busy re-stocking products from after the Christmas rush as many items are now out of stock, and I’m also hoping to create some new designs for 2013. I have lots of projects on the go and cannot wait to start adding them to site :)

Thank you once again for all your valued custom and kind comments through 2012, you are a joy to my soul and I feel honoured to serve you all. God bless you always, with much love from Emma Jane x x x
