Under the Willow

Under the Willow is a home based business that makes soy wax candles with hemp wick, hemp jewelry and beaded jewelry. 

I started in 2014, making macrame bracelets, re purposing old furniture, frames, anything I could make.  I was feeling complacent at work, was/am very tired of the corporate world and wanted to find my purpose.  Growing up I always went to craft shows with my mom and grandmother.  I always thought, I want to do that someday, I want to have my own business!  So in Jan 2014 I signed up for my first craft show!  Very scary and my booth was so amateur.  More craft shows later, I got a little better.  I then had a booth on the third floor of Nook & Cranny in the KC West Bottoms for a little less than a year.  It got to be too much, then I moved to Abode in downtown Bonner Springs, KS, closer to where I live.  That also got to be too much to keep stocked with having a full time job.  Then in June 2016 I was at the Just for Her Event and was stopped by someone from Eclectics Gallery.  I signed up to be a vendor and still sell my candles there.  

I started making candles because I love candles and was tired of all the paraffin wax candles I was buying.  I wanted people to be able to buy products that were better for them.  I continue to make macrame jewelry and love all the different possibilities that can be done.   I also make beaded jewelry with natural gemstone beads.  Certain gemstones have different properties, some may think they heal them while others may think they just look pretty.  But I want people to be able to find the right jewelry that will help them. 

I sell my candles at Eclectics Gift Gallery in Kansas City, MO.  I recently started a line of crystal candles called Nova Jade.
