About

When you receive a Sparklefly Candle Company package, I want you to feel like you are opening a gift. I want you to feel excitement when the postman comes to your door. I want you to feel inspired, special. I want to you to feel that you didn’t just purchase a candle, you purchased an experience.

My love affair with candles started at a young age when travelling with my family. When I was in my teens, I would take home scented candles from each trip as a remembrance of where we went and enjoy them with my mother at home. This was a special bond that only she and I shared, memories that I hold dear. I would get so excited in those days to smell each one and choose the one or two that would make the cut. I fell in love with some of those brands and became a candleholic. Unfortunately, not all of the ones that smelled so amazing in the jar gave me the experience I wanted once I brought…

My love affair with candles started at a young age when travelling with my family. When I was in my teens, I would take home scented candles from each trip as a remembrance of where we went and enjoy them with my mother at home. This was a special bond that only she and I shared, memories that I hold dear. I would get so excited in those days to smell each one and choose the one or two that would make the cut. I fell in love with some of those brands and became a candleholic. Unfortunately, not all of the ones that smelled so amazing in the jar gave me the experience I wanted once I brought them home, but the ones that did, OH!, those inspired me. As I grew older, I dreamed of learning and so I did. After over a decade of honing my craft, I was at a point in my life where I needed to decide; do I keep doing what I have been doing or do I take a leap of faith? It was my daughter that kept encouraging me. She was persistent. She was positive. She was a BELIEVER, like children typically are. She ignited my excitement. She awakened my courage. She inspired my love and creativity as she fluttered around me and made me a believer too.

My daughter is the original Sparklefly. She “sparked” that dreamer and creative side in me. She flew around me like a butterfly softly whispering for me to take flight with her. Since then, the meaning has expanded to anything or anyone that ignites that spark in you. It's that friend that encourages you. It's that sister that is always there for. It's your children, which remind you how beautiful life is. It's your love that inspires you to be better. Most importantly, it's YOU, you are a Sparklefly to everyone around you. Now, everything I do with Sparklefly is to attempt to “Spark” these things in others.

I believe what makes my candles so unique is the thought that is put into each step of the process to ensure that you are experiencing that joy that I was seeking with my mother so many years ago. It starts in product development with selecting only the finest ingredients, choosing the right colors, listening to my customer’s needs/feedback instead of solely following trends. It continues through production with creating each product by hand in small batches to control quality and integrity. Then through the finishing touches of the handmade, glass beaded chains, the packaging, the handwritten letters, that personal touch.
