Makes a unique gift for an anniversary (6th is iron and 11th is steel!), wedding or housewarming. This pair of candlesticks will stand strong for generations of candlelight. Each has an elegant and handmade feel that celebrates wabi sabi, the Japanese aesthetic embracing imperfection.
These candle holders sit approximately 5.5" tall. Each has a round hammered tray base that is approximately 4.5" in diameter with a turned up lip that is approximately 3/4" tall. The part that receives the candle is just under an inch in diameter; candles that are 3/4" or a little larger in diameter will fit nicely. The candles in listing photos are 7/8" in diameter at their widest. Candles are not included.
Designed by Raina and hand forged by Ruben, these candle holders are made without jigs or templates allowing each to celebrate unique character. Hammer marks on the metal speak to the ancient process of blacksmithing with the overall form emanating a contemporary feel. Made out of mild steel (which contains some irons) and finished with raw beeswax.
Candlesticks can be PERSONALIZED on the stem of the candle holder(s) as seen in some of the listing photos. We use 1/4" tall numbers and capital letters. "/", "-", "&", "+", "." and a heart shape are also options. Have your candle holders personalized with initials, a date,"6 YRS" or any combination of text. You can choose to personalize just one of the candle holders or both. Select the option that matches the TOTAL character count of your desired text for both candle holders combined: up to 10 characters or 11-20 characters.
***Please specify your desired personalization in the "engraving for personalization" above as follows:
Candle holder 1:______
Candle holder 2:______.***
"I received these gorgeous candle holders and they are even more beautiful than in the photos. And somehow I feel compelled to reach out and touch them every time I light my candles. Imperfectly perfect." -Christina Fuoco
