Diaphane Candles was founded in 2020 by architectural and set designer Anca Petrescu who  found herself with more time and less work due to the pandemic. Drawing her inspiration from nature, Anca handcrafts sculptural pieces from beeswax which are both visually appealing and perfectly functional. 

Sitting somewhere between a candle and a centrepiece, her beeswax creations are guaranteed to light up any room in more ways than one.


Produced locally in Anca’s West London studio, the candles are handcrafted from pure beeswax sourced from UK suppliers. Also, Diaphane uses packaging and other materials which are recyclable and also 


Beeswax is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax. It releases a delicate honeycomb scent and act as natural air purifiers through the emission of negative ions unlike other waxes which release toxins and pollute the air. 

Giving back 

Diaphane Candles believes in the power of giving back and it’s committed to give back a percentage of proceedings to the charity for people experiencing homelessness.
