My name is Lee and I have been a candlemaker for over six years.
Brackenbury Candles offer a variety of products in fragrances of different oils, florals and natural essences such as eucalyptus, tea tree and sandalwood. Not only do we believe in the importance of our aromas but also the mesmerising quality of our vessels to truly enhance the warmth of every home.
Having lived in Australia for several years, I would often search for a connection to my home back in the UK and soon realised that a candle is a perfect way to lessen the miles and stimulate reminiscence.
For me, candles became the gateway to precious memories, special seasons and nostalgia.
Handcrafted jewellery and cards.
Petit Jardin d’Art is an independent artist offering gift ideas of visually stunning living pictures and miniature gardens using fabulous succulents as the stars of the show!
Every piece is handmade using up-cycled materials, no two are the same.. each piece is unique!
Beautiful architectural succulents adorn the frames of the living pictures, a unique alternative to the hanging basket! They will grow and mature happily in the vertical frame in a sunny, sheltered spot on a wall, fence or even your summerhouse or shed. Succulents are easy to look after and with love will grow, produce young plant, some flower, die down and then the process is repeated. Your own Circle of Life in a frame!
Miniature gardens brimming with succulents would look amazing on your windowsill or patio table. From handmade rustic crates filled with hand painted terracotta pots to beautiful vintage crockery and French glass all hand finished to make the perfect gift for someone you care about.
I would love to extol the virtues of these wonderful little plants and am happy to take personal commissions. It would be great to hear from you.
Beautifully crafted recycled oak products.
Our recycled oak has a density of about 0.75 g/cm³, great strength and hardness, and is very resistant to insect and fungal attack because of its high tannin content. With each piece being totally unique in its markings and grain it’s a fantastic focal point in any surrounding indoors or outdoors.
All of our oak candle stands and tea light holders are unique, each piece is individually hand crafted to maximise the beauty of the grain and enhance the woods natural features. The many designs enable a multitude of uses from a dining table centrepiece, to a stunning feature for the patio or garden
