I started melting glass in 2005 after a weekend beginner course. I then taught myself the rest looking at online photos and being able to figure out the techniques. I have since studied under world-renowned glass artists, including Corina Tettinger, Leah Fairbanks, Bernard Stoner, Holly Cooper, Andrea Guarino-Slemmons and Kathryn Wardill. I evolved into being quite particular about flowers and became known for my brightly coloured floral-covered beads, and murrini floral bouquet Cabochons. My glasswork and tutorials have been featured in several worldwide printed beading magazines over the years, as well as being worn on a couple of Television show episodes.In 2014 I started setting my glass into silver worked jewellery, after teaching myself silversmithing watching lots of Youtube videos.
I use Soda Lime glass imported from Italy and the USA for their colour vibrancy. My torch of choice is a dual-fuelled Carlisle Mini CC torch, and I use a computer-controlled kiln for correctly annealed beads.
As a jewellery designer, I only create One of a Kind jewellery pieces using the highest quality fine and sterling silver, ethically sourced high-grade Gemstones, and natural mined Turquoise.
I gladly accept custom orders but mainly work on a "what comes naturally" process which encourages experimentation. Custom work will take approximately one week to finish and requires a 50% deposit. I live and work on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. My studio is just near Caloundra, and it has the beautiful rainforest surrounding it. I am open to the public by appointment.

I had two beautiful custom cuffs made for my daughters. They are absolutely beautiful and were made in record time! I would highly recommend Carli Hall and her beautiful craftsmanship.
“Shape of Fire” is an amazing little Aussie business!
Carli makes the most stunningly beautiful jewellery in Australia that l have ever seen! Every piece of Carli's jewellery that l own so far is so precious and a one-off.
I highly recommend these beautiful pieces and l don't think that you would ever regret it
This pendant is exquisitely made with a lot of love and attention to detail. The gemstone is of a rarer colour for sapphires and has a very attractive cut. I just love this pendant, it's a real work of art and I love how it's truly unique.
Carli Hall craft's the most beautiful jewellery that l have ever seen and own. My daughter gave me a wonderful pendant for my birthday and it is just so stunning! You will never regret owning a peice of "Shape of Fire" jewellery.
