Note from shop owner Nearly 10 years ago we began the Onyx Exchange in our kitchens. We've participated in 100s of events and sold in shops locally and throughout the United States and, during this time, we have had the amazing opportunity to meet and work with so many incredible shop owners, journalists, and, most importantly, customers.

We can't begin to thank you all enough for the love, kindness, support, and dedication you have shown us over the years.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for this amazing ride. It is bittersweet, but we are looking forward to this newly-found free time to help us pursue new ventures.

About

Hand-crafted Home & Body

When longtime friends Shan Parker and Jarod Wilson began experimenting with cutting wine bottles, it only made sense to fill them with soy wax for candles. They did, and through experimenting, discovered essential oils and created their own scents. On a whim, they accepted an offer from Shan’s neighbor to sell some of their first candles at her holiday craft market.

That night, it became immediately clear: their handcrafted products sparked interest for people who appreciate quality and relentless attention to detail. Later, a friend suggested that they try their hand at soap-making, and soon, Jarod and Shan perfected formulas for the candles, all-natural soap, and body products that are the Onyx Exchange today.

At the Onyx Exchange, we take pride in our products because we create them ourselves in our workshop. Our growth has allowed us to expand our reach, as we now work with a company in Colorado to cut our bottles and integrate other fragrances into our products. We hear what people like about our creations at craft shows, retail shops that sell our products, and candle maker bars – and we develop new ideas based on that feedback. Our work has allowed us to craft high-quality, handmade goods, and it’s also made us more connected to our community in Indy and beyond.

We love knowing that at any point in the day, someone is lighting a candle we poured, taking a bottle of our lotion out of their bag, or lathering up with a bar of our soap. And we understand that you appreciate the value of using upcycled materials with a focus on natural ingredients, and being a part of the movement of small creative businesses. Forged in friendship, committed to quality, and sustained by community, we at the Onyx Exchange are glad to be part of your lives.

Onyx is an excellent stone for releasing negative emotions such as sorrow and grief, and therefore brings good fortune and helps in recognizing personal strength. This black colored stone helps in relaxation, and in facing various challenges in life, especially if one suffers from a lack of life energy and exhaustion.
