About Bella Bevanda
I am Jet Gehlen, the Artisan and Owner of 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 make all of these aspects combine into one to create a job that I deeply enjoying doing daily.
Bella Bevanda, meaning "beautiful drink," works along many small businesses throughout Oregon, Washington, and California. Collaborating together to create one-of-a-kind wine bottle candles to help capture your memories while illuminating and warming your space through glimmering candle light and inviting scents. Our candles allow you to take your wine tasting experience and memories home with you through unique and fun way to make them last beyond the tasting room.
Bella Bevanda is an earth-friendly and cruelty-free company. Each bottle is crafted entirely by hand, from the cutting of the bottles, to smoothing out of the edges, and to the pouring of the wax. I use vegan soy wax, cotton or wood wicks, premium plant-based and essential oil infused fragrance oils; and finish them off with recycled 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!
