Add a twinkle, a warm glow with the handcut Silver Crescent Moon Candleholder. Handcut and crafted by artisans of Noah's Ark in Moradabad, India where traditional metalsmiths deal with the skyrocketing costs of metal, to devastating effect on the local economy and on the lives of the artisans. Noah's Ark continues its work, training artisans to use alternative metals, source recycled materials and to create innovative designs grounded in traditional methods. This handcut design of a crescent moon with carefully cut raindrops and flower petals casts dancing lights onto the walls near it. Set atop a white enameled cloud base and designed for easily changing out the tea light candle within it.
