A mother of three with a passion for family and a love of candles. For the past 30 years I have lived and raised my family in Cordova Bay, Victoria BC. Thus, Cordova Candle Co. was born. Cordova Candle Co. was built on the idea of scent-memory connection through nostalgic scents that remind you of a place or time. I wanted to develop certain scent combinations to be mindful of different parts of the city that I enjoyed exploring with my children as they were growing up. Each candle is purposefully named after a different part of the city that we loved exploring and that we call home! Our candles are hand-poured in small batches using natural soy wax and blended with phthalate free premium fragrances and essential oils. Every candle is labeled and packaged with love by hand and will burn cleanly all the way down. Our candles are sure to please, and hopefully whisk you away to a special place of joy and love!

Stix N' Prick
Stix N’ Prick started with the making of Acorn Ornaments, the acorn caps were from my backyards and I had bucket loads of them, I knew I needed to do “something” with these beautiful objects. So I started felting shapes and next thing, acorns and acorn garlands were being make by the boat load. My kids were felting, and my friends were felting. From there I starting thinking about what else I could offer. I happen to have my great grandmothers collection of postcards that date back to 1884-1926. These cards are a work of art and for years have just sat in a book. I came up with the idea to photocopy these images and make them into reuse-able cards so that my families memories will continue to travel the world. I did this by gluing the photocopied image onto recycled wood from the Opera Scene Shop and painted the one side with black chalk paint. The idea is that the card is given as a gift or tag to a gift then in turn that person can write a new message on the chalkboard and pass it alone to someone else... and so on and so on!
One of my lost favourite things I make are little Decor Snow Trees. These come in five different sizes and can be bought as a single item or as part of a group. They are sweet and look fantastic on a Mantel, in your kids room, as a table centre piece or as your actual
Christmas tree for your house!
My Rattle Monster Felted Monster all are another huge hit with kids and animal folks!!! They are all one of a kind and all have Bells inside to make the “Rattle”
As a Props Builder for Pacific Opera Victoria for the past 26 years I love to create and transform shapes from one thing into something entirely different!

Inspired by the West Coast forests and the rugged shorelines of Vancouver Island, Wild Pine melds the two into her rustic burnings. From ornaments and charcuterie boards to driftwood decor and cribbage boards, there’s no surface she won’t turn into art.
