We have all found ourselves in search of the perfect gift for a friend or loved one; spent significant time wandering store isles hopelessly for some inspiration but couldn’t seem to find that unique something special. From this common scenario, You, Me & Bones was created by Waan Pivasiri.
You, Me & Bones offers a large range of customised handmade gifts, lovingly made with the unmistakable personal touch of Waan’s personal creativity and flair. Her fascination of all things weird, quirky and borderline creepy is apparent in each of her candle designs – from antique tea cup candles, home décor, sweet smelling brain soaps to her top selling JJ Doll head candle – perfectly cute yet undeniably creepy.
You, Me & Bones has gone from strength to strength through loyal followers via Instagram and word of mouth. But it didn’t stop there! With devoted fans and the power of social media at her fingertips, Waan was approached to extend her stock to a quirky boutique shop in Sparta Place Brunswick – Save Yourself. Success of the range was obvious when the first batch at the store sold out within 3 days!
Stepping into her home workshop, its evident Waan has immersed herself into her work. She is passionate as she moves around showing us the mini displays of her many creations. Her home is filled with the delicious aromas of her six scent range, which is rapidly expanding. It’s understandable that the three most popular scents of the moment are Coconut & lime, Fig & Melon and Black Tee & Lychee. Her boyfriend and assistant, Jay (the You in You, Me & Bones) lovingly describes it as the house of fairy farts.
“Bones, my cat is a one and a half year old tabby cat who is wayyy too big for his own good. He helps me out by staring at me from up high at the corner of my workbench and occasionally comes up to me to use my leg as a scratching post and pulls my pants down. True story.”
You can’t help but fall in love with You, Me & Bones. In fact we couldn’t help placing multiple self-gift purchases ourselves!
All candles are made from natural products and are soy wax based – ensuring your candles last longer! Keep an eye out for her limited edition items coming out for Halloween, Christmas and Valentines Day!
