img_1290554888445_3941Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well… just a little update for you, I’ve been busy adding the last posting dates for Christmas delivery on my web site today and thought I’d send the information to you as well :)img_1285691092284_5441

Have you finished all your Christmas shopping, or are you like me and still haven’t started! I really must get myself sorted out. Well, the last order dates for Christmas delivery at Atalya Designs in the UK is Monday 16th December.  For Europe it’s Saturday 7th December and for USA, Canada and Australia it’s Friday 6th December. Please remember to allow extra time if you need to post your handmade gifts on once you’ve received them.

I will also be closing the Atalya Designs web site over the holiday period, from midday on the 19th December to 4th January inclusive – all orders received during this time will be processed on the 6th January 2014. Please make sure you purchase all your gifts in time for Christmas so I can get them to you in perfect time. I’d just like to take this opportunity to wish all my customers a truly Merry Christmas and a Joyful New Year! It has been an absolute honour serving you throughout 2013 and may the New Year bring you every happiness and joy your heart can hold.

Until next time, may all your prayers and thoughts be filled with God’s everlasting love, light and wonder – with much love from Emma Jane x 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

Charity Rosary Beads and New Designs!

ChristmasHello my beautiful friends and customers! I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the festive season – did you know, it’s only 29 days til Christmas day! How exciting! Thanks to a lot of rest and healing prayers, I am feeling much better with my Colitis and back to creating rosaries and new prayer beads :) Thank you again to everyone for your support and love.

I also thought it might be a beautiful idea to create some handmade rosary beads and prayer beads for charity – enabling my customers to donate money to a good cause and also receive one of my handmade items in the process. After choosing a rosary or prayer gift from the items listed on my charity page and the order has been processed, I then donate 50% of the proceeds to the designated charity listed on the page.  A customer from Newcastle has recently donated £10 after ordering a faith bracelet for £20 – so we’re on our way! If you fancy donating a little something to charity (any amount will be a blessing, £2, £5 it doesn’t matter) – it will mean so much to so many people. Thank you in advance for your kindness!

charityHere is the web page for donating (without purchasing an item) –

I’m also creating some new baby bracelets, as they have been selling well these past few months and a new collection of spiritual meditation beads have also been added to my site! I’m actually quite excited about these as they’re a lovely tool for meditation and contemplation. Perfect for someone who just wants to hold onto the beads and recite their own prayers. Many people are finding comfort from praying to their Guardian Angel and celestial beings. I’m hoping the new prayer beads will bring much comfort, love and faith to whoever wants to use them. I’ve even made the tassels myself – which as a terrible seamstress I’m quite pleased with the overall result! I’m now quite tassel crazy and looking at items I can add tassels to! meditation

I will be adding the Christmas posting days on my web site soon, so you can be quite sure of your orders arriving in time for Christmas day :) Thank you again to everyone for your support and love over these past few months, you are an absolute blessing to me and my job is so much more rewarding thanks to your heavenly light shining upon me.

Wishing you all a truly beautiful week filled with love and Divine blessings, until next time, God bless, love Emma Jane x x x

New Rosaries Added!


Hi everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the beautiful Spring weather we’re having – I love it when the sun shines and little buds start forming on the trees. So enchanting.

Saint Bracelet

Saint Francis Bracelet

I have some news for you all, I’ve managed to add a few new rosaries to my web site and I’m currently in the process of taking some photos of the Saint bracelets I’ve recently finished. Very exciting, I love how the bracelets have turned out :) Here’s a sneak preview of the Saint Francis bracelet.

The new rosary beads that I’ve added are a ‘Sterling Silver Dumortierite and Hematite’ (number 42), a lovely purple rosary using ‘Sugilite Jasper and Bronze’ (number 43) and a Sterling Silver Baby rosary (number 101).  The first two rosaries can be found on this page, whereas, the baby rosary can be found here.

I’ve also added two new mini prayer booklets to my site, as customers have asked about different prayer aids and leaflets that they can buy – so I hope you like the new ones. You can find them here. Jesus and Mary prayers, they’re cute little books which I hope will bring much comfort and hope :)

The other Saint bracelets will be added over the coming few weeks, as I combine my time with some bespoke orders I currently have for Holy Communion. Which reminds me! I’m going to create some children’s wooden rosaries too – which I think will be perfect for the Special day. Small wooden beads, perfect for little hands. Too cute. Can’t wait to begin!

Until next time, my beautiful dear friends and customers – may I wish you all a wonderful weekend filled with blessings and abundance. All my love, Emma x x x

Wooden Rosary, Baby Rosaries & Anglican Rosary

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend and having a beautiful day, I’m just writing to let you know that I’ve recently added a few new rosaries to my web site :)

I know some people have made requests for wooden rosary beads, but I’ve always found it difficult to source a lovely wooden crucifix/cross. Thankfully, upon my Internet travels, I have managed to find some olive wood crosses! Yippee! When the crosses arrived a few weeks ago, I immediately ordered some bayong wood beads and began creating :)

Here is the finished result, it’s now available to buy online and I truly hope you like it – I will be adding more wooden rosaries to my site in the following months, as I love how this has turned out. I’ve also added two new Baby rosaries, in sterling silver and swarovski pearl. The mini rosaries have been so popular, that I’ve decided to make a full-sized rosary in sterling silver for Baptisms and Christenings – they can be found here, on the Baby Rosary page.

Also, I have managed to find some new Anglican crosses! I have been using some plain crosses and some crucifixes (with Jesus on) for the Anglican rosaries so customers can choose which they feel most drawn to. I’ve now added a new Anglican rosary with a coloured enamel cross and I’ll be adding some more soon! I always like to offer my beautiful customers a wide choice ♥ Here is the new Anglican rosary – I hope you like it.

I will be writing again soon, when I’ve added some more items to the web site – I must make sure you have enough choice for Christmas gifts! Yes – some people are already buying early for Christmas :)

Wishing you all, my beautiful friends and customers, a truly blessed weekend filled with much love, light and joy. Thank you for being you. All my love, Emma x x x
