More soy candles ready for my customers

I have had a busy week making up two large orders of soy candles for customers - two pictured above.The cup and saucer is Susie Cooper bone china and the scent is green tea which is lovely. I plan to source more interesting ceramics in the New Year to make up interesting soy eco-candles.

Woolflowers and Eco Soy Candles

I am now having a lot of fun making candles from eco-soy wax. This is a renewable wax made from soy beans. These candles are clean burning and don't give off the noxious fumes that candles made from paraffin wax do (ugh). They burn for 8 - 10 hours at least. Most are scented (lavender, green tea, citrus and basil, ho wood and other fragrances tbd!) I am selling them at various craft fairs this winter.

I am also making pretty woolflower brooches that can brighten up a jacket, scarf of hat. Some are made with organic wool from the Isle of Mull, others with a scarce wool from the Bernat Klein studio. I am also decorating some of them with Swarovski Crystals!

I am excited to be taking a table at the Local Producers Market at the new Ebba Centre in St Abbs on Fridays through most of this November and December 2012. This super event features a wide range of stalls and is open from 10am-4pm. I will be selling my own handmade artisan soap and eco-soy candles plus I will have a wide range of lovely hand knitted garmets such as scarfs and children clothes as well as cushions. (knitted by me, my Mum and my friend Helen!) -  I am not selling online just now but plan to be early next year.
