A CANDLE WITH A CONSCIENCE
Nordstrom and and Glassybaby have partnered up to honor Evelyn Lauder with commemorative votive candle holder.
I have love glassybaby’s, ever since my best friend had them at her wedding and gave them to us bridesmaids as gifts. I still have mine and I love the way that it allows the light from the candle to glow. They are each gorgeous and unique, since they are handmade. The handmade votives are created by a team of 70+ artists in more than 400 colors at a Seattle studio.
Nordstrom and glassybaby have joined forces to create Evelyn, a vibrant pink glass votive perfect for gifting (and getting). The best part? 10% of all purchases will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with an initial donation of $25,000.
The two Seattle-based companies are partnering to recognize Lauder’s commitment to breast cancer research and prevention, a cause that hits close to home for Nordstrom and glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes.
It takes four Seattle artists, three layers of molten glass and two thousand degrees to make one glassybaby. Each Evelyn glassybaby is a vivid pink in color, but since every glassybaby is a unique hand-made piece of art, each will shine with its own lively, signature glow when lit.
glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes, a three-time cancer survivor, is thrilled Nordstrom is joining them in their mission of giving. “glassybaby is all about goodwill and giving back,” she says. “We love that another Seattle based company is joining us in our mission to donate money from sales back to charities helping cancer patients.”
The Evelyn glassybaby is available now for $44 at cosmetics counters in Nordstrom stores nationwide, as well as online at nordstrom.com. It comes gift-giving-ready adorned with a bow.
