Jen Swan's design career blossomed in NYC during the early 2000's while studying at the School of Visual Arts. After working in fashion accessory design, traveling the world designing handbags, designing product and packaging for home accessories, Jen has finally settled in a small quaint town in CT, not too far from NY. The time was right to fulfill the desire to finally dive into a entrepreneurial dream and to make Kindlette candles come true.
THE FIRE ARTS
Since 2009 Jen has studied large scale flame effects, designed interactive fire art installations around the country, performed as a fire dancer and shared her knowledge of fire performance at retreats throughout the North East. There is something about fire, the dance of the flame and the warmth it brings both inside and out.
Kindlette has been a small business creating fire and flow arts related accessories since 2011. It has transformed over the years and grown to be a dear part of Jen's heart. An idea was born back in 2014 to create a collection of candles that would reveal secret messages when burned. Jen's passion for both design and the fire arts are what fuel Kindlette and the desire to share with you, a piece of this love.
