I am Jet Gehlen, the Artisan and Owner behind Bella Bevanda. I began crafting wine bottle candles in 2014, and shortly thereafter, in 2015, I was fortunate enough to take over ownership of the company and have shaped it into the business it is today. Throughout my life I have loved to create, support small local businesses and artisans, and have been passionate about taking care of our earth. So as you can see, this company has really allowed me to combine all of these aspects into one, creating a job that I truly enjoy doing daily.
Bella Bevanda, meaning "beautiful drink," works alongside many small businesses throughout Oregon, Washington, and California. We collaborate together to create unique and one-of-a-kind wine bottle candles that not only capture your redolent memories, but also help fill your home with warmth, light, and calming or invigorating scents. Our candles allow you to take your wine tasting experience home with you, add some flare to your decor, stimulate your senses, and create your desired ambiance.
Bella Bevanda is an earth-friendly and cruelty-free company. Each bottle is crafted entirely by hand, from the repurposing of the bottles, to the pouring of the wax. I use vegan soy wax, cotton or wood wicks, premium plant-based and essential oil infused fragrance oils. I then finish them off with recyclable paper dust covers and naturally hand-dyed paper ties. I strive to make high-quality eco-friendly products that are clean-burning and safe for everyone to enjoy!
I look forward to hearing from you to see how we can collaborate to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly gifts for your tasting room or store!
