Here's the most important things you need to know:
- The luminaires are better than the pictures show - It's hard to show details in artwork when they're lit.
- They're bigger than you might think - and heavier too!
- The artwork is amazingly detailed.
- They're well worth the price
- You've never seen anything quite like them anywhere else.
- 80% of our customers come back and buy more.
How they work
We use orginal or copy-write free artwork, which we then make translucent. We then hand color each piece of artwork. We have hundreds of different designs on this website, however if you don't see exactly what you want, please feel free to suggest something, or talk to us about a custom design.
We then layer on 5 different materials around the artwork, to create an opaque unique background. Our luminaries are either a realistic metalic finish, in gold, antique gold, silver, antique silver, or copper, or our iridescent pearlized finish in a rainbow of different colors or our newest - a faux stone finish.
When the candle in one of our luminaries is lit, the artwork is translucent, so it illuminates in a stunningly beautiful way.
Actual Luminaries have much more detail in the illuminated artwork than it is possible to capture in a photograph.
Size does matter!
Many of our customers are surprised at the weight, and at the size of the luminaries. The luminaries are 4 inches high, and 3 1/2 inches across. The large size is another feature that helps the candle to burn longer, the wax pools at the bottom (and is designed to light up the artwork completely). For this reason, we do not recommend the use of tealights or candle cups - you CAN use them, but they'll cast a shadow across the artwork, and honestly your candles will burn just as long in the luminary, and cleanup is easy.
To show you the size, we've taken a picture with a quarter.
And for a better comparision, here's a picture with a Music CD:
Cleaning & Safety
Our candle luminaries are made from high quality glass with a thick base of more than 1/2 inch of solid glass. This is a nice safety feature that prevents the luminary from tipping and combined with our unique materials keeps it cool to the touch.
The smooth interior allows you to remove the excess wax by putting the luminary in the freezer for 10 minutes or so and popping the wax right out.
Unique - and you deserve the best!
Our luminaries are quite unique, as far as we know, we're the only ones in the world making Candle Holder Luminaires quite this way. You can find cheaper votive candle holders - but you won't find a better luminary with our translucent unique artwork and safety features.
And to top it all off, we include a FREE votive candle with each luminary. We generally use hand poured New England based candle makers with terrific reiki charged herbal blends. They're also for sale here, if you decide that you'd like more. Our prices on the Crystal Journey Votives are the best on the web - and our price on a sampler 18 pack is cheaper than you can find high quality votives anywhere!
