These simple yet elegant tealight holders are made of fine copper wire cloth and shell buttons over a clear glass container. The wire cloth breaks up the light into interesting patterns without obscuring it, while adding warmth to the glow.
The shell button decoration is "sewn" on with thin copper wire - not glued. Outer edges of the wire cloth are folded under for smoothness. All work is one be me, personally, by hand.
- Each holder measures about 2 3/4" tall by 2 1/4" in diameter at the top, slightly narrower at the bottom..
- Copper sleeves slip off the glass so that each can be cleaned separately. Just rinse the copper sleeve to remove dust and let it air dry.
- Look best with a tealight candle (included), but also work with a votive or LED tealight.

Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.
If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
