Stacey Robertson began White Apartment Studios in May of 2013. Living in Oklahoma City in her little white apartment, Stacey opened her shop on Etsy as a way to share her mix of artistic skills with the world wide web. When a friend suggested that she turn her stash of vintage teacups into candles, Stacey began to venture into the world of candlemaking.
After many hours of research and one $100 order, this lovely candle journey officially began. From that first batch of oils and soy wax, Stacey blended 11 unique fragrances for her friends and coworkers to try. Much to her surprise, her baby candles were quickly loved, and orders began to come in. Soon she was invited to bring her candles to a local craft fair, Indie Trunk Show, and in May of 2014 she quit her pharmacy job to pursue candlemaking and her art full time.
All of the White Apartment Studios scents are designed to "ignite your memories" in one way or another. Each of the individually handpoured candles has it's own little memory description on the label to help spark some synapses! Stacey blends and curates all the fragrances herself, beginning with a memory or feeling she would like the candle to evoke, along with a list of complementary words. Some of our candles have even been known to cause people to cry happy tears at first sniff! Because all of our fragrances are blended to be as true to life as possible, you're sure to find your own perfect little trip down memory lane.
White Apartment Studios has made a commitment to only using the finest materials for not only you, but for the environment as well. All candles only use soy or ethically-sourced beeswax, cotton wicks, and phthalate-free fragrances.
Meet the Maker
First I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to check out my little slice of the world. I hope you're enjoying your stay!
I have been an artist and an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember. Seriously! I have pages of business plans dating all the way back to when I was a wee little five-year-old. I often say that I was born to do this, and truly, I was.
One of my favorite parts of owning my own business is that I get to take on custom pieces, and work closely with my customer to make their dream piece. I have worked in almost every medium across my artistic career and I love learning new skills, so taking custom orders not only means I get to see the impact of my work first hand, but it also means that my days are often varied and never ever boring!
Aside from my work passions, I am also an avid lover of all things science (and animals!) You can often find me working with the Science Channel on in the background and my cat Midnight at my feet. I just recently acquired a camera mount for my telescope...so I'm sure you'll be seeing some space pictures on the White Apartment Studios Instagram really soon ;)
Thanks for letting me share my passions with you!!
Peace and love,
