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.

Carli’s work is amazing. She designs and produces the most unique pieces. I’ve bought several items from Shape of Fire including a floral heart pendant and Jasper earrings. I will certainly be coming back for more!
This pendant is stunning, I wear it every day. The SOF pieces get heaps of comments from ppl! So unique ❤️
I recently purchased the Still Life Painting pendant from Shape of Fire. I did not think it possible, but it was even more fabulous in person than the pic. The design and weight of the pendant are wonderful The artist is one of the best I have worked with and will continue to follow her site for additional purchases. I absolutely love this piece of wearable art!!!
Always a good day when I receive Carli's one of a kind jewelry, art, statement pieces. Finely detailed and wonderful conversation starters.
Stunning piece. This and everything I have ever received is better than the pictures always!

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.
