Our Luminary Solid Metal Candle Holder Art Works are BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!! We make these super-fun and great looking candle-holders locally right here in Cartersville, Georgia! We cut them out of 1/8″ thick steel, hand-finish each one, and then powder coat them black for durability! Just set your candle on the flat plate and see how festive it looks as it burns!
This is an 8” tall x 6” wide holder with the base plate for the candle being 4.5” x 6”.

Does the thickness of the steel we use matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short).
