Jewelry and Candles
This is a quick story about a few of a girl's favorite things...Jewelry and candles!
Shortly after I started selling my pendants in early 2018, I looked around my house one day and realized I was low on candles. I went through them so fast and I just didn't feel like going to the store for yet another candle haul. And I wasn't crazy about the chemical & petroleum smells that I'd often get mixed in with the fragrance.
I was reminded of the most incredible candle I've ever smelled. It was 20 years ago, at a small handmade gift shop in Stone Harbor, NJ, about 15 minutes away. This beautiful scented shop made such an impact that I easily contemplated the possibility of making my own. That of course had a snowball effect and I then got so excited and immediately did lots of research. I absolutely love to read so doing this research was a pleasure.
As with wire wrapping, I loved making candles too. I could add to my own collection and give them away as gifts. I realized that I could also make scented tea lights and including them in every order. So I did. Customers absolutely loved them and I'm glad I am able to add that personal touch.
