Can candle holders reflect my family and friends?

According to Wikipeida: A candlestick, chamberstick, or candelabrum (plural: candelabra) is a device used to hold a candle in place.

The name "candlestick" derives from the purpose of the device as a place to secure or "stick" a burning candle; candlesticks have a cup or a spike (or both in some designs) to keep the candle in place. Webster's II New College Dictionary defines a candlestick as "an often ornamental holder for securing a candle or candles. Candlesticks are less frequently called "candleholders", a word not found in most dictionaries prior to 1960.

Although electric lighting has phased out candles in many parts of the world, candlesticks and candelabra are still used in some Western countries homes as a decorative element or to add atmosphere on special occasions. Before the proliferation of electricity services, candles were brought into the bedroom using chambersticks, which were shorter than ordinary candleholders and furnished with a wide pan to catch the wax drippings.

My first product was the PAMOT (candle holder in Hebrew) because I like using candles for saying thanks, wishing good luck, pray or just as a nice romantic feeling.

Most of the candle holders I had or saw in stores had no color, no saying. They were plain and looked the same. I wanted to create something else, trying to think about the users, family and friends. I wanted to give everyone a place to choose.

One customer told me it gave him the option to create his own family through my candle holders "It gave everyone the option to be unique in his own world with his colors, characteristics and points of view, but still maintain a united family as we are".

What will you build?

Audre Lorde said it best: "it is our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences".
