Rock Candles are made from slate stone from the Great Smoky Mts. of North Carolina. Each stone is collected, split, and then chiseled and shaped to bring out the natural beauty of the stone. A glass reservoir is then attached to the bottom and a wick is inserted into the stone from the top. When lit, it creates the stunning illusion that the stone is on fire. These candles are not only beautiful but are also a functional piece of art. Each piece is unique and are made by myself.
Reusable gemstone oil lamps called RockLights. Each stone is sliced, polished, & drilled in our workshop.

We find and dig up many of the stones on our travels.
All of our candles are hand poured and made in small batches. Our candles are made out of 100% natural soy wax, natural essential oils, and an untreated wooden wick. The wood wick not only helps the candle to burn slower, but it creates a relaxing crackling sound like a fire place. Our main objective is to provide healthy candles at an affordable price so that families will not have to worry about breathing in harmful chemicals from other types of candles.
Ky's Kandles specializes in quality, phthalate-free 100% soy wax candles that have wooden wicks that crackle as they burn. We also offer wax melts. The candles are hand made in small batches from the renewable source soy. Ky, the owner, melts everything together (ingred. from reputable sources) and pours into the jars. Kyla also creates all of her labels herself and assembles the candles from start to finish including jar, scent, wax, wick and labeling on down to social media and her website.
I am excited to introduce you to my new luxury/corp. candle line called The Michael John Label in addition to my popular Wicked ∙ Woven brand. I worked alongside a team of artists to design these handblown pieces of art and use my candle making skillset to appeal not only to one's eye, but also to one's sense of smell and touch. This line is a nod to my father who stressed the importance of supporting made in the U.S.A. products. These candle lines are produced by me in Star, NC and Raleigh, NC.
