Hello, I am Danielle Barnett, the founder of Gifts n Crystals. My journey to this website and my new Gold Coast showroom started many years ago with a passion for arts and crafts and has evolved into a full-time business that now services local and worldwide customers.
I completed my first leadlight overlay window in 2000 while I was still living in Sydney, and I immediately fell in love with the results and wanted to do more. ‘Just Like Leadlight’ came into being. I spent two to three years creating decorative windows and doors for clients before deciding it was time to branch out into other artistic directions. I started making suncatchers and continued to supply DIY Leadlight kits to customers.
After I left Sydney, I took my hobby to the next level and opened a market stall. I also tried my hand at party plan before finally moving my activities online. The first website launched in 2001 expanded rapidly and proved to be incredibly successful. When my business continued to grow, I realised I would have to relocate to our current site.
I am extremely proud of the handcrafted gifts and custom designs I produce. I take every commission seriously and I love being involved in the creation of beautiful gifts for special occasions. My suncatcher designs are original and cover an extensive range of themes, including fairies, angels, butterflies, dragons, and unicorns. All are accompanied by sparkling crystals, charms and pendants. I also provide DIY suncatcher kits, and all of the accessories and craft supplies you need to make your own jewellery or craft items.
I have increased the range of gift lines in the catalogue, which means you are sure to find the perfect present in our online brochure. There are suncatchers aplenty, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Take a look at my crystal dreamcatchers and wind chimes, or browse through the figurines, mugs and scrying balls. Salt lamps are also available at reasonable prices.
I am dedicated to providing gorgeous, quality products and a complete service experience. I have recently moved Gifts n Crystals to our new showroom in Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast, and I will be available onsite for design consultation and advice.
