Shirley Dalby


Shirley’s candles are all home made mostly from recycled or paraffin wax. Shirley has been a member of the North Staffordshire Guild of Craftsmen for many years and has developed her own unique candles and methodology.

The candles are decorated to her own designs using a variety of materials such as acrylic paint, sequins, beads and coloured wax.

Moulds are adapted from a wide variety of available containers or latex mouldings. There are many available shapes and sizes and colours. A collection of just a few of those available are on display.

Shirley’s handmade bookmarks are made from reclaimed beads using needles or looms and finished off with a variety of beads, bangles and accessories.
