Posts Tagged ‘Candleholders’

Personally I am a fan of beige… and cream… and gray (shades of, even)… and black… and faun… but just occasionally it’s great to lash out and let a little colour in.  Call me crazy baby.  That’s just the kind of gal that I am.  What fun then to combine my love of candles AND splashes of colour with these gorgeous recycled glass candlesticks (all the while showing a little support for the Spanish economy).  Take it from someone who has welcomed a little bright orange into her life, it’s enough to make you smile! [and for those of you wedded to the elegance of black, I've got them too and they really work rather well with the other colours too].

… which is a lucky thing really given that we make beeswax candles.

Usually I like the flame to be front and centre, as in your face as possible, but very occasionally I find things that are so beautiful when lit up by beeswax candlelight, that it would be a shame not to use them myself, and therefore a shame not to share them.

You may have realised that I have little crush on porcelain (another beautiful, natural product)… particularly when it is formed into beautiful, candle holding objects.  So, I could resist a couple of new things that came across my workbench.

I particularly love the babushka (I even have a set of babushka measuring cups and have been working away on a babushka candle)!  Who knows if the candle will make it into the world beyond Queen B product development?  In the meanwhile, you can light up your life with this.

And about the only way I like my cities is like this :-)… twinkling (eco-friendly, carbon neutral) lights at a distance with no pollution or noise.  Heavenly really.

This is the story of a rollercoaster… not the Luna Park kind, the emotional kind.  Small business is kind of like that.

About 6 weeks ago, shortly after I had launched the Bee Lights, I gave some seconds to one of our lovers who happens to be a metal spinner.  I gave him my usual spiel about putting them in “anything”… apples, small vessels, sweet potatoes… you know the deal.  I had no ulterior motive.  Promise.

Four days later he walked in with the first iteration of Mini-Marilyn.

Guess where I was on the rollercoaster at that stage?  No prizes.  OK, so I seriously need to get a life, but I was ecstatic.

Remember when you finished school?… I was happier

Remember your first kiss?… I was weaker at the knees

Remember the first song that made you cry… I was more emotional

Yes, I worry me too.

Anyway, so we need to deal with the bottom of the roller-coaster.

As is so often the case with manufacturing in Australia and using quality materials, when push came to shove, we just couldn’t make the pricing work.  I wasn’t going to be able to sell them at a price that I found palatable.

Which brings us to today’s special offer.

Mini-Marilyn Bee Lights holders - Nickel plated

Clever Queen B lover during the testing phase delivered me a bag of 50 brass and then 50 nickle plated “Mini-Marilyn” Bee Light holders.  That means we have 25 pairs of each (actually it is only 20 because I am keeping 10 of each for myself and the Queen B museum & dowry.  That’s all… in this design.  We have other designs on the way.

So, if you love our Bee Lights (and personally I think they are my best work yet) and you aren’t into fruit or vegetable holders, then grab yourself a pair before they all go.  They are being sold at the never to be repeated price of $25 per pair.

And please take a photograph and email it to me.  I love seeing our candle living their destiny.
