Gold Star Luminaries


The gold finish and star cut outs will have you daydreaming about the fun and sun of the beach. The luminaries have been upcycled from discarded rum bottles and metal oil barrels.

Certified Fair Trade by the Fair Trade Federation & handcrafted by a Haitian artisan seeking to build a better life for her or his family.

The luminaries consist of 100% wax handpoured into an upcycled rum bottle with a metal sleeve encasing the candle. The metal sleeve measures 3.5" wide and varies in height. Below are the measurements for the candle vessels.

  • Medium: 2.75" W x 4" H and provides an estimated 30 hours of burn time
  • Large: 2.75" W x 6" H and provides an estimated 35 hours of burn time

The product weight in the gift packing ranges from 1.10 lb for the small, 1.16 lb for the medium, and 2.20 lbs for the large. The item comes gift wrapped in a recycled Kraft pinstripe cardboard box with Fanm Limye's logo and a story card providing information about our artisans and Prosperity Catalyst.


Frantzcia is a very disciplined and motivated young woman. She loves working as part of a team to produce candles for the Fanm Limye Collection and loves the women she works with at Fanm Limye.
