This unusual hand beaded wire menorah presents a symbolic tree of life with birds and butterflies among its branches. Crafted by artisans in South Africa, this creative menorah adds color and shine to Hanukkah's commemorative candle lighting tradition. The wire can be manipulated to your liking, and a few drops of melted wax into each candle receiver helps hold lit candles in place.
Measures 11"L x 4"W x 11"T. Choose from menorah only (without candles), or include a box of white or colorful candles. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
