Thank you ladies.  What type of shells do you have there?  These are oyster and a couple of different types of clam shells.  I've ordered in some different wicks as these ones are rated for soy & gel waxes.  They do work with the small shells and I so love how beeswax burns.

I also ordered some spa tealight cups that are 1.5" deep (http://www.canwax.com/Spa-Tealight-Cups-Polycarbonate-Large_p_2357.html)

Yup another new addiction :mwaha:

It really is!  There is less beeswax in there than in a tealight....  wick placement is really important.  I did a second one after that only burned for about an hour because of where I put the wick.  Clueless

how are you planning on selling these (if you are) as they are not very stable I was thinking of gluing some smaller shells to the outside to make a more stable base what about you?  :buttrf:

I'm actually going to be putting them together with silicone so they are stable and then boxed.  I am going to do 3 sizes, small, medium and large...  I have the Silhouette Cameo coming which will allow me to custom make boxes.  These are not going to be available for wholesale, just retail.

I need to get back down to the beach to get more shells so I have enough for the construction portion....
