These aren’t just any votives. The story behind glassbaby is about the beauty of sharing one’s bright light….
glassbaby creator, Lee Rhodes was fighting her third battle with cancer and raising three small children when she first dropped a tea light into a handmade, colorful, glass cup. Lee found great hope and healing in the soothing light and found the peace and calm she needed to heal. She wanted to spread that hope. Lee learned how to blow glass and began making votives. She then hired artists to make more colorful, glass votives and soon opened a glassblowing studio. Glassybaby was born.
Lee and her children.
The story gets even better. During her own cancer treatment, Lee remembers meeting people in waiting rooms who could not afford basic day to day costs like bus fare and groceries during their treatment. Health insurance does not help with those needs, so Lee wanted to help fill that gap. glassybaby has donated more than $890,000 from sales to charities dedicated to healing and helping patients with those costs during treatment.
Wow. Every time I read this, I get goosebumps. You can see a video on Lee’s story over here.

Lee, thank you for sharing your heart and your hope. And for shining your bright light onto our world.
