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. Please message me if you would like to visit!
I am beyond delighted with my treasures :o) They are superbly crafted and make a HUGE statement! I cannot wait to show them off ;) Thank you so much Carli!
As soon as I saw the Amethyst heart pendant I knew I had to have it. It is such a unique piece, absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely be looking at other pieces to add to my collection.
Such a delightfully sweet pairing of the most unbelievably skillful floral lampwork and ornate silver decoration, makes this hair stick an absolute favourite of mine! I cannot recommend Carli's work enough!
Another superb piece of both decorative and functional hair jewellery that elevates the style of the wearer! It has an exotic flair and is simply gorgeous! I couldn't be happier :o)
I am forever amazed at Carli's inventiveness, her fine attention to detail and the perfect harmony between the stones and their settings! Every single one of her hair sticks are exquisite and unique, not to mention, so elegant!!! Needless to say, I am a thrilled customer.

Thank you Carly - it’s beautiful
I’ve ordered a few things from ‘Shape of fire’ and I’ll continue to be a customer. This necklace like all of the items I’ve bought is solid and good quality. It’s completely unique and made by a small business. So win win win.
I have just received my beautiful pendant of an arm/hand holding a bee and wearing a garnet ring. I love it and it will be worn often, l might wear it every day for a while... l plan on getting more pendants as l love the designs. You have made me very happy Carli Hall and l hope that your business prosper's for many years to come. 💖💖💖💖💖
Such an exquisite combination of a perfectly and intricately crafted glass cabochon, containing a beautiful and skillful arrangement of pretty pink flowers with a tiny signature butterfly on a shimmering pink dichroic background! The silver framework is sublime and a perfect accompaniment with its floral and scrollwork embellishment. I am never disappointed with Carli's works of art, which is why I will always come back for more!!!
I am so in awe of everything Carli does! Everything from the stone selection to the design and the execution of each piece is a joy to behold! Not to mention how how sweet, generous and incredibly accommodating she is! I will keep coming back for more. 😻😻😻
You can tell Carli loves what she does! Her hard work shows in the small details and features of each piece she lovingly makes. I get so many comments when ever I wear one of her creations. Her designs are worth every cent and I feel good knowing I am supporting a small business owner rather than a big corporation. Cant wait to see her future collections.
