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: http://www.atalyadesigns.co.uk/handmade_rosary_beads/index.html


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 – http://pinterest.com/atalyadesigns/– 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



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) – http://www.justgiving.com/atalya-designs

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 http://www.atalyadesigns.co.uk

Update from Emma Jane

www.atalyadesigns.co.ukMy dear beautiful friends and customers, please forgive me for not writing in my diary/blog earlier than today – but as most of you know, I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis and I have been most unwell these past few months with a flare. Do not worry if you had no idea – I know you all care greatly and send many prayers and love my way :)  I am still in mid-flare (they can last for up to four months) but I was feeling well enough to write a little something in my blog/diary and to say hello to all my lovely customers! I do hope you are well and enjoying your week. I am sending all my love and best wishes for a beautiful weekend to come :)

I have managed to add a few new rosaries to the site during my ‘good days’ and I’ve bought some new packaging for all my handmade items. They’re the cutest thing! Small purple press stud boxes that pop open to reveal the treasures within! Here’s a picture of them, I hope you like them too. www.atalyadesigns.co.uk

I’ve also had a request to create mala prayer beads for my site, and whilst I’ve never made them before – I thoroughly enjoyed researching about them and having a go at making them! I will be creating some more when I feel a little better, and then I’ll add them to the website – they’re a lovely strand of 108 gemstone beads to recite prayers, for chanting or to use during mediation. I hope my customers enjoy them as much as I’ll enjoy creating them! Watch this space!

Until next time, my beautiful Divine friends, have a wonderful weekend filled with treasures, love and holy blessings! With much love and light, Emma x x x

Happy New Year from Atalya Designs!

Hello everyone! I apologize for the delay in wishing all my beautiful customers a Happy New Year, but I’ve been very busy creating new stock and updating my web site for 2011! Did everyone have a wonderful Christmas and New Year? I hope so – you’re all in my thoughts and prayers for a special New Year! Sending you much love for the coming year and may it bring much joy, comfort and happiness.

As always, I will keep sending my little email updates throughout the year and remind you all that I’m here for you – whatever you need, I will gladly create for you :)

I’ve recently designed a new large rosary using some deep rich colours which I’m hoping to add to the web site shortly. It’s been lovingly created from brecciated jasper and black onyx, with a matching centerpiece featuring Our Holy Mother. The beads are two wonderful healing stones –

for uplifting, rejuvenating energy, mental focus and feelings of deep happiness. They’re also believed to absorb and transform negative energy allowing you to develop a positive outlook on life. Black Onyx is also a wonderful protection stone. Makes an excellent prayer aid or focus for meditation.

I’m also creating quite a few bespoke orders at the moment, for Baptism and Christenings (lovely baby pinks and blues, so cute!) – so the new rosaries won’t be available for a while until I’ve uploaded them to the site, but I’ll definitely send an update once they’re available to buy.

Until next time, may you all have a truly blessed week filled with much love and light.

God bless you all, love Emma x x x




New Prayer Box Bracelets Added!

I’ve recently added two new prayer box bracelets to my web site, and I’m in the process of adding another! These beautiful bracelets have been a real success on the website and I’m happy to announce that I’m expanding my product range and creating new designs this month ♥  The two new designs are created from red coral sponge and brown zebra jasper, and Swarovski pearl and hematite. I’ve added them to the following page: Prayer Box Bracelets – please feel free to take a quick peek! I’m also adding another design to the web page later today, and it’s a beautiful design created from lepidolite, turquoise and blue aventurine. These three positive gemstones help to create peace and bring complete serenity to the mind and body. Very healing!

The prayer box bracelet is an expression of love and hope for all who wear them, as well as those who give them. Simply write down a prayer on a small piece of paper, fold it up, and place it in the delicate prayer box. When you’re wearing the bracelet, it will help remind you to pray without ceasing. A unique Christian gift that comes with my prayers and best wishes that our Lord God will be your constant source of strength. Perfect for bridesmaids, graduates, mums, sisters, or any dear friend. Each bracelet comes with a matching display box and a meaning of the stones used within the bracelet.

A truly special and unique gift ♥

Until next time, wishing you all a truly blessed day filled with joy and happiness, love Emma x x
