welcome!

we are bells box collective

In 2017 we opened our doors as a Creative + Cute space where our community could gather and connect over a good ol dose of creativity!

Over the past 6 years, the long family style table that sits down the middle of the studio has hosted thousands of women while they connect over something crafty. We believe that inspiring our community to create something with their own two hands, while surrounded by their peers, is one of the keys to happiness! 

During the pandemic, while supplies were scarce and we couldn’t gather in large groups, we found that our pink studio was the perfect place to share our love of clean candles with our community in small groups. Creating clean and toxic free candles that were in beautiful containers that act as decor in our homes, quickly became our go to craft around here.

In 2022, we transitioned our mixed use space to a full time candle bar and now you can find us on the daily whipping up super custom + clean scents for our clients at workshops, in our store, and online. Our nights and weekends are filled with private group workshops – the ultimate GNO, a sweet take on baby showers + bridal parties, company team building events. You name it, we have the best time hosting an out of the box event for you and your friends! 

We pride ourselves on creating products that 100% custom, free of toxins and chemicals, and in the most gorgeous containers you have ever seen! We also hang our hat on the fact that you won’t find another experience like the one that you will have at our adorable space (some might say that the experience you have at Bells Box is our secret sauce!) And we can’t wait for you to join our community!

Hi! I am Cory

In 2015, I left my drab grey cubical to chase my entrepreneurial dreams of creating a community driven business. Two years later, I opened the doors of the Pink Studio in Old Town Cornelius and offered crafty, DIY workshops like candle making, floral arranging, kids crafts, and everything in between.

During the pandemic, when I was looking for a way to keep my head above water, I found that my candle making was the most requested for small groups. I was also dealing with infertility. After learning that the candle and fragrance industry was one of the dirtiest spaces that often came along with hormone and reproductive toxins, I knew I couldn't make products that contained things that could potentially harm my changes of having a family. The combination of the two set me on a journey to create the cleanest products that I could feel good about having in my home and sending home to my friends and family! Over the last 3 years our candles have become a staple in homes across the US and we are known for creating our pretty and clean products.

When I am not creating custom scents and dreaming up new products, I can be found joyfully chasing after my toddler, Jax; chatting up business ideas and chasing dreams with my husband and fellow entrepreneur, Jason, and teaching candle classes/making new friends at the studio!
