Fond childhood memories of romantic evenings at Christmastime with candlelight, the scent of cookies in the air and handcrafted straw stars inspired the Lambert design team to make these beautiful stars, which can be used year after year. Elara could easily become such a classic. Made by hand from fine wire rods, these stars are artfully soldered together and then either nickel plated or finished with a gold patina. They can be held in place on the tree with a fine wire or ribbon. Candlewax can be removed carefully with warm water and a soft cloth.
