Another candle favorite is sun moon rising. Ashley started her candle brand 3 years ago as a prayer. She say’s that at the time, life felt monotonous but keeping her candles lit around her home brought her peace. Being able to create and connect with her community through sun moon rising has given her a sense of purpose, something she didn’t realize she was missing.

Her purpose is to encourage her community to tap in with their higher selves. The act of lighting a candle is so simple, yet so powerful.

Creativity for her is healing, and through pieces of jewelry she hopes to pass that on to others.Every stone is ethically sourced, and every piece is finished with small family owned manufacturers in the USA. Made with love and intention.


Cari is the artist behind Wuve Jewelry. She creates hand-painted original pieces of art jewelry!
