Shisha Embroidery Sparkles
Put some Shisha Mirrors on your next project
Shisha Mirrors are tiny pieces of mirror used to adorn and embellishment your embroidery projects. You often see them on Indian and Asian products as the word Shisha comes from the Persian word Shisheh which means mirror work. The mirrors reflect the light and give your craft project an extra dimension and really makes them stand out.
We have a excellent video on how to incorporate Shisha mirrors into your next embroidiery project, so click on the video below to watch it.
If the idea of giving Shisha Mirrors is tempting, then we have the perfect answer. We have some bags of Shisha mirrors on our website that you can use on your next embroidery project.

This week’s product profile is Crafts for Children. Have a look at this section of our website as children of all ages simply adore block printing.
