Being at total sucker for both yummy candles and things Jamaican – I am totally impressed with these UN-WINED Candles!! They add such beauty and warmth to my home.
With that said surely by now you’ve heard about ARTify Paint Parties or “Paint & Sips” –But ARTIfy, the brainchild of Jamaican artist Stephanie Lue Yen, offers even more. Last year ARTify joined the Jamaican-made craft industry with the successful launch of their first product, UN-WINED Candles.
Playing on the word “unwind”, to relax, UN-WINED Candles are made using repurposed wine bottles, giving them a second life instead of just being dumped. The process involves stripping the labels, cutting the bottles, polishing the edges and then hand-pouring the fragranced wax into the glasses.
The candles are available in 3 perfect scents, inspired by Jamaica, pimento, ortanique and coffee. Once lit the candles fill the room with their gorgeous aromas (they smell so good you want to eat them) and the tinted glass from the wine bottles creates such a warm, calming glow!
You can contact ARTify at artifyja.com to order your UN-Wined Candles or stop by one of their retail outlets, Island Art and Framing in Orchid Village Plaza, Cellar8 in Manor Park Plaza and Polka Dots in Marvins Park, Ocho Rios. Follow ARTIfy on Instagram @artify_ja and on Facebook at ARTIFY JA to see what they’re up to.
