Our Story

Founder of Born to Sparkle, Belle Maccoll, shares her story and the inspiration behind Born to Sparkle

“In 2015 I was a survivor of a serious motor vehicle accident which left me unable to return to work and really struggling.You don’t realise how much you miss working until you can’t do it anymore. That’s where Born to Sparkle started. [I wanted] a way to add some sparkle and smiles to those who need a good boost because I truly believe we are all born to sparkle. I started Born to Sparkle in 2016 as a way to support myself and help people!

Born to Sparkle is based in Fremantle, Western Australia and draws inspiration from our natural environment and the colours of the beautiful indian ocean sunsets. We really love our work, going to events and helping people sparkle. It is also great to get some time out and sketch up some new stencil designs and make some bedazzling displays for an upcoming event. We are essentially an entertainment company and our team is oozing with ideas of what we can do next.

In our team and extended network we have people from various artistic backgrounds and if you talk to us about your next event or project we will definitely be able to either help you or put you onto the person who will help you.

We really love giving back. We have donated our time and services to underprivileged children at the Fremantle PCYC for their christmas party and have donated sparkle boxes as gifts for underprivileged kids.

We are a positive creative hub that believes in supporting the communities we work in.

All of our sparkle staff have working with children checks, are trained and vetted and are fully insured which means you have the most safe, care free and enjoyable experience you can!.”

Testimonials

Having just arrived at Cottesloe Beach for the much anticipated By the C concert, I settled down on the grassed area right in front of the stage and had some time to spare before the first singers were due on stage.

My friend Emma & I decided to go for a walk on the beach to where the stalls were set up and the Born to Sparkle stall immediately caught my eye. I suggested that we pop in to see what it was all about and at that point we were greeted by the lovely Belle & her team who were more than happy to explain what it was all about.

Before we knew it, we were both sitting in a chair and getting out first glitter tattoo’s applied. I chose the By the C logo and to have it colored like a rainbow and to have it applied to my upper arm. During the application of the tattoo there was a photographer capturing the moment which was fun to be a part of and before I knew it we were both done.

The service was great, all of the artists were super friendly and was the perfect way to start our afternoon off at the By the C concert.  I was more than happy with my experience & very happy with how long the glitter tattoo lasted. I would recommend their services to everyone.

The ECU Guild has used Born to Sparkle on several occasions and we’ve seen a wonderful response from our students! The girls were kept flat out with requests all day and they were easily the biggest hit at our orientation fair.

We would happily recommend them for events for all ages to add that extra sparkle to the occasion!

My name is Lily.

I like Born to Sparkle because it’s so GLITTERY.

And I love glitter!

I made friends with Glitter Glam! She likes glitter! I like glitter!

My favourite tattoo is the skull and the sword.

I love that design in blue, pink, purple OR rainbow.

I like the blue and the pink and the rainbow face sparkles too.

People should visit Born to Sparkle because it’s ALL about glitter.

Even if you don’t like glitter-because some people do like glitter and some people don’t like glitter-you should try it anyway!

I love Born to Sparkle.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mark and Belle for the grand opening of Mandurah Forum. Born to Sparkle provided a truly unique and engaging experience for kids.

The glitter tattoos looked incredible and it was fantastic to see so many sparkly faces around the centre.
