Couple of new designs

green marble tealight holders

I've got a couple of new designs that are based off of my tumbled travertine tea light holders.  I really like how these turned out and plan on doing more in different colors and stone.

limestone candle holders

The first is a set of 2 limestone tealight candle holders. This limestone is honed and filled for smooth finish. The edges have been double beveled and polished to match the top and bottom surface. Each candle holder, holds one unscented soy tea light candle from Bazil Essentials. Makes a great little centerpiece for a small table or shelf, and perfect for a coffee table. Each one measures 3.75"x3.75" and ~1" thick.  More information available here.

green marble candle holdersThe next design is very similar and in a really nice green marble with wonderful veins of white and lighter green.  These also have the double beveled and polished edges, but with and added rounded bevel on the corners, to really make them unique.  These also include soy tea light candles in your choice of scented or unscented from Skin Essentials.  More info on these is available here.

These candle holders are great for any room in the house and easily moved from one room to the other.  They can also make a great impromptu coaster, by just removing the candle.  More stone creations can be found in my Etsy Shop and my Artfire Shop.  I am always interested in new ideas, so if you have an idea for a stone creation, contact me and we'll see what we can come up with.
